Who Is A Mother - Poem by Elaine Oxamendi Vicet

Who is a Mother?


A mother is someone
soft and kind

Firm not harsh

Someone who is always
willing to give a listening ear.

Someone we cherish each
and everyday

Mothers are rare like
precious gems

Many have children
but few mother them.



Mothers unique

World around
Mother this day
celebrations abound.

Mother who dare goes by that name?
Only them that know, to nurture,
Care and understand.

Mothers near and far stand tall
Be you Aunt, Grandma or Mother dear

Mother – who is Mother here?
