Cheryl

She's a woman, but yet so bright.
She doesn't see how her light shines.
Taking care of others without a second thought.
This is kindness that could never be taught.

Mother, aunt, wife, sister, and daughter.
So many roles, but she will never falter.
She even handles so many battles within.
So many battles she can't ever seem to win.

Child after child she welcomes into her home.
Claiming them as if they were all her very own.
Opening her heart to literally everyone.
Feeding them all when dinner is done.

Wearing herself down to cater to everyone else.
Focusing on them all instead of her health.
Saving them, but never herself.
Maybe it's time to focus on yourself.
