Very Little


I remember the times

When mother would not eat to make sure we ate first

She had the warmest smile even through the hardest times

She would always say “everything will be okay”

Her being a single mom was clearly the toughest thing in the world

We had very little of everything

Food, clothes, water, money

She was struggling paying the rent for months

But as always she kept that warm smile on her face

“It will be okay!” she said as she hugged me tight

Even through the hardest times

She was always a super mom.
