A Sonnet For My Incomparable Mother

I often contemplate my childhood, Mom.
I am a mother now, and so I know
Hard work is mixed together with the fun;
You learned that when you raised me long ago.


I think of all the things you gave to me:
Sacrifice, devotion, love and tears,
Your heart, your mind, your energy and soul-
All these you spent on me throughout the years.


You loved me with a never-failing love
You gave me strength and sweet security,
And then you did the hardest thing of all:
You let me separate and set me free.


Every day, I try my best to be
A mother like the mom you were to me.

    I think this poetic pen sketch is a perfect tribute to the multifaceted personality of your mother. Each word reveals a new aspect of her inner self of which following are just a few: Sacrifice, devotion, love and tears / Your heart, your mind, your energy and soul / You gave me strength and sweet security,
