Today’s poem is You Made Me by Amanda MacDonald.

As a teen she always enjoyed writing poetry to help her express herself and get her through teen life. Years have passed, and after deciding to write a short story on a whim one day, she picked up her pen and has yet to put it down. Amanda enjoys dabbling in poetry when she isn’t working on her novel or blog or busy being a mom, and especially likes writing poems about things that are near and dear to her.

You Made Me

Without you in my life I was complete but not whole,

I was searching without knowing, that you already lived in my soul.

A part of me down in my core, craved you and needed you to be,

My child, and my saviour, you came,  you made me.

As your mother, as your protector, I will be here day and night

To guide you, and to shepherd you, I’ll make sure you’re alright.

You will love me, and you will hate me, and you will push me away,

But its normal, and it’s natural, I will trust that you’re okay.

Remember my child when in times of trouble, you can always come to me.

You are never too old to need your mom, I didn’t just make you, you made me.
