Thank You Mother

But of all the lies you ever told me 

the happy ending 

of the fairytale of us was the sweetest!


And of all the lessons you ever gave me 

The one not put in spoken words

I made into written law and abide by every day.

Thank you dear Fish! I've given this a lot of thought... It doesn't quite apply to the original rules of Haiku. Then again what do you call a three-lined non-rhyming verse? I'd better take down the Haiku from the title.
Thanks for the feedback ?

A good poem Mae. I'm not sure about it being a Haiku. Do category labels matter? Probably not when it is such a good poem.
