When u was 1 year old, she fed u & bathed u.
U thanked her by crying all night long.

When u was 5 years old, she dressed u for the holidays.
U thanked her by plopping into the nearest.

When u was 10 years old, she took u & ur friends to the movies.
U thanked her by asking to sit in a different row.

When u was 15, she came home from work, looking for a hug.
U thanked her by having ur bedroom door locked.

When u was 20, she suggested certain careers for ur future.
U thanked her by saying, “I don’t want to be like u”.

When u was 25, she helped to pay for ur wedding, & she cried & told u how deeply she loved u.
U thanked her by moving halfway across the country.
