Ain’t No Mountain High Enough

Thank you for coming, now everyone can shut their mouths and listen. For this is the moment, I speak, no interruptions or pauses, as of this moment you’ll only pay attention to me. It’s not new to everyone that I like being the center of attention yes, I admit, I like when people look at me. I enjoy being noticeable; I can be needy and that sometimes can cause a lot of trouble within my relations. It is a part of me nonetheless, that I cannot change but work on it. Now when I think about you and me, it is not possible to ignore the fact that we are twin fire signs, with four brown eyes and we ain’t no saints. I rejoice thinking how much we are alike; it isn’t something that bothers me. I feel proud to say that we are similar; we are brave, ruthless, stubborn, bold, unapologetic, loyal and good. We have our flaws, maybe, but still we find our way for people to love us and when they do it is sincere love. I was raised by the fiercest lioness in this wild jungle called life. I was nurtured with love, kindness and maybe I was a bit spoiled. You tried to protect my siblings and me. Your heart broke just a little but so that ours will never have to break again. That’s the kind of love only a mother know. To place us first before you, it has to be the most unselfish thing to do. When I think about you, I think of love. Unconditional, selfless, kind love. I also remember all the lessons you have taught me. All past mistakes, heartbreaks and falls I went through you were there to hold me. I know you’re not perfect and make mistakes. You are only human, but I see you and Wonder Woman can’t compare to you. Your strength is unmeasurable, having three little lions wild and beguiled. Is just amazing how you are able to keep up with us.

I can speak for me and say that I get it. I can be a lot to handle sometimes I will admit. You have watched me grow and become the person you’re so proud of. You have been there since the beginning, from the very first day. No one in this world knows me the way that you do. I’m surprised because you know me so well that you even know things, I didn’t knew about myself. When I think of you, I feel safe. The house where we live doesn’t feel like home when you’re not here. In times when I felt lonely you made me, feel like I’m not alone. I’m never alone because you’re always with me, through the highs and the lows you have remained. I can’t picture my life without you, what will I do? You were my first google browser, having all answers to my inquiries, because moms know everything. It’s like a setting by default; mom just know what’s good for me. For any question I had you will always have an answer. You’re my confident and secrets keepers. Sometimes a friend but your role is to protect me and provide good advice. See you’re unbreakable, unmistakable, highly capable woman that’s making loot. A living legend too, just look at what heaven do. Send us an angel, and I can’t thank enough for all the good you’ve done with us. No one else can be what you have been to me. You have always been the one and only woman in my life.

Sweeter than cotton candy. Stronger than grandpa’s old brandy. Always that needed occasional smile, the stars have a lot to say about women born in the month of July under the sign of Leo. They have a lot of love, warm, and a fearless soul. I definitely know about fear, but you gave me the strength and confidence that despite the circumstances we will rise above. Back then I didn’t know why; you were misunderstood, mom. So now I see through your eyes all that you did was for love. It has always been because you love us, so deeply and unconditionally. Maybe you made some mistakes, so what’s with that? At least we didn’t turn out to be serial killers, it could’ve been worse. Always know that you’ve got a son that’s so, so proud you took the high road. Thank you for being brave on our behalf, because I know it wasn’t easy. Because so many times you were told that you had to endure instances that you weren’t supposed to go through, because you were hurt and, in that pain,, you found the light. You found yourself, your true self. If you dare to feel like that again, lost and tired, when you’re broken in two let my love take you higher cause I still turn to you. I need my mom therefore I need you to be okay. You’re the sky that holds the clouds, the lady of the house, a blind believer in all I dare to be. There’s no safer place I’ve found than your shoulder. You sewed each sock together, every piece with love. You build a warm home where I can feel safe and loved. There’s no way I can pay you back, but my plan is to let you know that I understand, you’re appreciated. You will always save me because I am your baby. I love you for giving me your eyes, for staying back and watching me shine. I didn’t know if you knew, so I’m taking this chance to say that I have the best mom I could’ve asked for.

Lastly, if there ought to be a hall of fame for moms. God’s most unique and precious creation. Heaven help us to remember that the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world. God knows there ain’t no valley low, ain’t no river wide enough to keep us away from each other. If I need you, I can call you no matter where you are. No matter how far, I don’t need to worry, just need to call your name and you’ll be there in a hurry. You told me, I could always count on you mommy, from that day on, you made a vow. You’ll be there when I want you, some way, somehow. I know you liked arum lilies but most of all you cared, about the way we learned to live and if we said our prayers. I cannot express enough how grateful I am to hold you in my arms, and I wouldn’t trade a day for the chance to say, “Mom I love you.”
