For My Mom

I am the dirty dishes,
    and you are the sponge
    scrubbing me clean.
I am the shattered glass,
    and you are the broom
    sweeping me back together.
I am the key,
    and you are the heart.
    I am the one to open you.
I am the nail,
    and you are the hammer
    nailing me to excellence.
