Dear Mother


You are such a brave woman to raise a man as me
The world can never replace your love
And the thoughtfulness of your care
You raised me to stand tall in the height of my despair
You taught me how to safe my tears to manly moment
You gave me moral support when I was with no faith
And reminds me of rice stalk and turbulent storms
Though I was too young to understand then
Memories wouldn't let me forget your sweetness

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
