A short poem I had written for my mom.

To the woman who raised me who I am

The woman who cared for me at all times

She held me close when I scraped my knee

And said sweet words when I needed them most


She game me advice when I had hard troubles

She tried her hardest to give me nice things

And tried even harder to get things I needed

She went out of her way to get me all things


She would walk a thousand miles for me

And she would spend her last dime on a good school

And she'd hurt anyone who hurt me first

She'll always be there and love me so much


She's my mother, friend, and inspiration

She's my helper and my consolation.

Excellent! What better way to appreciate and respect one's mother than a sonnet?

Very wel written sonnet. I know it can be hard to add advanced vocabulary to a sonnet due to all the limitations, but it's always worth the effort.
