She is My Mother


She is a woman
Who feeds, cuddles, and loves me.
The one who gave birth to me.
I'm her greatest fan.

She is my mother
Who loves my father,
Does anything for her children
And takes care of her grandchildren.

She is my best friend too,
Comforts me when I feel blue.
She is my best mother,
I couldn't replace her with another.

She is a sweet and loving parent
Who cooks my favorite foods,
Does household chores
And looks after my grandparents.

She does multi-tasks
And gives me anything I ask
Because for her,
I'm her wealth and power.

When I was a child,
She taught me how to fear God.
Sometimes, I found it awkward
But she would understand.

When I married my fiancee
She told me,
''Love your wife as your mother.''
Her advice I'd treasure forever.

Every now and then,
She would send an email.
She would always tell,
''I love you and I miss you son.''

She is my mother,
A wonderful mother
To her sons and daughter.
I am very proud of her.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
