My Mother

If there is one thing worth more than silver
It's a mother's heart
If there is one thing so true
It's a mother's smile
If there is one thing without expiration
It's a mother's love
If there is one thing so comforting
It's a mother's arm
If there is one thing so relieving
It's a mother's word
If there is one thing so real
It's a mother's care
If there is one thing so heartbreaking
It's a mother's tears
If there is one thing so disturbing
It's a mother's fears
If there is one thing so unquantifiable
It's a mother's prayer
If there is one thing so undeniable
It's a mother's kindness
If there is one thing so unmeasurable
It's a mother's wish
If a mother possesses all this qualities
What then is life without a mother?
I am glad i have someone to call my mother

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
