I thought I’d share this poem, since it’s Mother’s Day today. I wrote this poem for my mom when I was 14. Our relationships had it’s ups and downs and life’s thrown a lot of curve balls but God has truly blessed me with an awesome mom. I really love my mom. I have another poem that I wrote for my mom and gave to her last year, which I posted on here too, if you’d like to read it, click here. I also have a poem that I wrote for my Grandma. You can read that too if you want, here.
For all those Mom’s out there, I just want to tell you thank you! You have some of the most important work in the world. Thanks for all you do! Happy Mother’s Day!
Mother is really a wonderful person.
She spent the first years of my life
Chasing me around and keeping me out of trouble.
But, I have to say,
What she has done more than anything else
Has been just spending time loving me for me—
Accepting me for who I am and where I’m at.
Sometimes, I, as her daughter
Don’t realize how much I put her through,
And until I have some sons and daughters of my own
I don’t think that I will ever understand.
Mother is really a wonderful person
Because, you see,
No matter what is going on in her life
She always has a smiling face
And a hug and a kiss just for me.
Whenever I need some motherly advice
Or just someone to talk to
My mother is always there
To help me decide what to do and how to do it.
Either that or she just quietly listens
Until I’m through talking
And when I’ve wiped the tears from my face
She tells me to come to her
And then gives me a hug and a kiss
And tells me she loves me.
Then I know that everything will be alright
And that I’ve have nothing to worry about.
I know that no matter what happens,
And no matter what life will throw at me
She will always love me and be there for me
Ready to help me along the journey of life
Back to our Heavenly Father.
My mother is really a wonderful person
Because, you see,
No matter what happens I will always know
That she trusts me to do what is right
And won’t stop loving me if I make a mistake.
I love my mother so very much,
And I know that she loves me!
