Ode to My Mom

 You are funny:

You wake me up laughing by tickling my toes

You make fun of my sisters for me

When you play with me you are always making jokes

You are nice:

You comfort me when I’m scared

By making fun of me

You help me with my homework when

I don’t understand it

You are loving:

You work really hard to provide food

And our light green house with the big tree in front.
