Sweet Mother


When I first opened my eyes
I saw a woman smiling brightly at me
She cradled me in her arms
I was content with being
Always strapped at her back

The first car I ever entered
I grew up to know how sweet she was to me
Cooking the most delicious meal that
Makes me lick my fingers

No matter her age she still looks beautiful to me
Her resilient nature makes her outstanding
She never lacks a word of advice
Many women have done virtuously
But you exceed them all in everything
You are my sweet mother

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
