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

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.

On reading this beautiful tribute to your mother, I am reminded of my mother. I feel so much of similarity between the two. Indeed they were wonderful mothers! May be this is every child's claim! Sir, if you find time, I invite you to read my poem 'The Drop of a Feather'!
