Thank You

by Poet

Thank you.
I mean, really
thank you.
well, for all the times
that I found you
still here...
For letting me know
how much you still care
and for all the times
that you braided
my hair.

Thank you, Tweety.
thank you.

For reading me stories
when we were
still kids,
and all the songs
you sang to me
and the selfless things you did.
You may have forgotten but
I never will
the many times 
you encouraged me 
and told me not to fret.

Even on the cloudy days
your love
was like
a net.

Thank you for my name.
And for cookies, brownies,
and chocolate cake.
You always were a giver 
but never one to take.
Even after Mama died
your love
was like
a break.

Just like a pillow
it broke my fall 
and caused me to awake.
And for all the things 
that you've done and still do...
well, thank you Tweety. I
thank you.
