Meghan Starick shares poem dedicated to her mom


My name is Meg (Meghan) Starick and I attend Sparks UMC. I’m a senior in high school. I wrote this poem in dedication to my mom who has been there for me through the thick and thin. She and most moms show compassionate love to their children. My mom has been through so much but she never stopped being a good mom.

mom, 

Even when things got rough 
Even when your hands trembled 
Even when you were exhausted 
Even when you were grieving
Even when you were terrified 
You still love
You still care
You still cherish us 
Cause that’s just who you are 

Thank you 
For all the support 
For all the tears you wipe
For all the hugs 
For those nights where you rocked me to sleep 
being a Martha 
those sleepless nights  
teaching me to laugh 
teaching me
teaching me to never give up even when I wanted too 
teaching me to chase after my dreams 
teaching me to have lifetime friends 
teaching me to never let someone change me 
I don’t know what I would do
Without a mom like you 

You raise us 
to be kind 
To be generous 
To be patient 
To be givers 
To be strong 
To know Jesus 
To be loving 
To have things to be passionate about 
To Laugh
