I'm sorry that you have to be alone and take up the role of both a father and a mum,
I'm sorry that he's not there to share the burden with you,
I'm sorry that you have to carry the weight alone all by yourself,
I'm sorry that you won't be growing old together,
I'm sorry that you won't be holding hands anymore,
I'm sorry that you don't have that shoulder to cry on.
But I'm thankful that you're not giving up on us,
I'm thankful to you for being so strong that when I think of you I see strength and endurance,
I'm thankful that you're always still praying,
I'm thankful for continuing to see his dreams he had for us,
I'm thankful for believing in us.
I'm thankful to you for being such a strong wall to our home though we lost our roof,
I'm thankful to God for blessing me such a wonderful, beautiful and a strong mother.
I hope we get the blessing to repay you for everything you have done for us thus far.
