to Zoe on Mother’s Day

you became the mother
you never had to be
just because you were the woman
I always wanted
you’re a better mother
than I am a father
we don’t deserve you
not your kindness
not your warmth
not your love
you hold us together
without you we would crumble
you make us better by just being here
you make us try harder by just being you
we thank you, we love you
