A Mother's Words Poem by Joseph Anderson

A Mother's Words

Rating: 4.9

I remember, still remember
Though she's lately gone ahead;
They still linger, always linger
Precious words my momma said.

Oft, she spoke of patience, virtue,
Peace and joy gained by giving;
She felt love, compassion, kindness
Paved the pathways of our living.

Her words were inspiration
When beset with storms and strife
And her poise and deep contentment,
Became the guideline for my life.

She led me through the darkest
To pursue a better day
And if those paths became too rough,
She would simply kneel and pray.

I'll remember, long remember
Till I take my final bed;
Words of beauty, words of wisdom,
Words my dear, sweet momma said.

Mother, one of the greatest words uttered. Where do they get all that wisdom? I'm simply happy that they are as wise as they are. It makes for better mothering. Thanks Joseph for this lovely work. Welcome back.

It felt such sorrow reading this. I am glad you have such amazing memories of your mother. I too think of my own mother as you do, only the words you have written express a feeling I could never capture if I wrote such a thing.
