A Mother's Thoughts

Rating: 5.0
I’m still here somewhere
Between the dishes and laundry
Breakfast, lunch and dinner
I’m still here.

I’m still here somewhere
Between the bills, the errands
Vacuuming, dusting, phones ringing
I’m still here.

I’m still here somewhere
Between school meetings, shopping, lawn mowing
Teasing, Refereeing, and “Mom, tell him to stop it”
I’m still here.

I’m still here somewhere
Between pre-school to high school
Toys to computers
I’m still here
But who am I?

This is certainly a refreshing way to express the 'rewards' of being a mother. I'm a father and have done a lot of these things too. Now you have a lot of material to work with in composing your poems. If you do capture these valuable, unforgtable moments in poems which your children might read 50 years from now, maybe they will then apprecate all the things you did with and for them. Wish you success and comfort in the thought.

In answer to your question in the last line, you're a mother that many children wish they have. Sometimes, mothers feel lost in the midst of domestic chaos. But, at the end of the day, it's the mothers who are most fulfilled. Great poem! Perfect 10!
