A Mother's Love For Her Child

Rating: 4.4

You are my child,
given to me by some miracle
that I cannot comprehend
I was worthy of.
You've come and blessed my life.

You are my world.
Whatever I've known as my own
now shared willingly
and freely with you.

You've come and opened my heart.

New to Poem Hunter. Wow! This is a beautifully worded poem. I think every Mother should read this poem out loud to her child(ren) at least once in their lifetime. Very special indeed.

'Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of life's longing for itself and though they come through you, yet they belong not to you. You may give them your love, but not your thoughts. for they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies, but not their souls. For their souls live in the land of tomorrow which you may not visit, even in your dreams. You may strive to be like them. But seek not to make them like you, for life goes not backward, nor tarries with yesterday.' Your beautiful poem reminded me of these words from Gibran's The Prophet, which I have typed here from memory. You share the wonder and joy of motherhood with great humility and heart-felt tenderness in this very special poem. love, Allie xxxx
