Someone Who Was There

Someone who was there--
for the first minutes of my life.

Someone who was there--
when I stood up and walked,
when I opened up my mouth and talked.

Someone who was there--
when I got my first tooth,
when I lost my first tooth.

Someone who was there--
for my first day of school,
and will be there for my last.

Someone who was there--
when i was scared,
when I was mad.

Someone who was there--
when I was sad,
when I was happy.

Someone who was there--
through the day,
through the night.

Someone who was there--
and always will be...

Someone who was there was my Mom.
