I celebrate my carepartner: my Mom

We scorn the crass commercialism 
of Hallmark holidays 
and flowery memes, you and I 
(wonder where I get that from?)
but on the other hand, 
we still appreciate the sentiment
of a Happy Mother's Day wish,
a Happy Birthday hug.
So we celebrate May together,
the beginnings of Spring, 
sharing laughter and family.
And I will continue to say 
thank you, thank you, thank you
for being my mom,
(like you had a choice!)
wheeling me around the 'hood
cleaning my house,
changing my sheets,
helping me problem solve,
and loving me selflessly.
