POETRY: Mother's Day
Jonathan (Angel), 17
Bronx, NY

To a mom I will always keep in deep:

I know you’re not my mother
But you sure as hell could be
All the things you did
All the times you were there for me
And this is just to say thanks
Because it’s Mother’s Day and my heart’s not feeling blank
A thanks to you
Because you helped see me through
So take a breath in, smell the roses in the air
Today’s your day
And remember Angel sent these your way.
