To My Mother


Mother, you are the inspiration to my life, because of you is who I am.
You held my hand and taught me to walk, because of you I will walk on tall.
Through your eyes you gave me dreams, because of you I believe in myself.
From your heart you showed me how to love, because of you I love with all my heart.
Your tears warned me of life’s uncertainties, because of you I learned how to sacrifice.
From your life story you commend me of my worth, because of you I possess my dignity.
You instilled in me our life belongs in God’s hands, because of you I trust in God with my life.
I could feel your strength when times were hard, because of you I know when I must fight.
Through your darkest night you decline power of corruption, because of you I believe in fate.
Mother, because your heart is my home and my life is your seed. Like a rare four- leaf clover. You nurtured me with a unique beauty to my life.

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
