Mother - Poem by leticia starkey

Mom is the word for you
There is nobody that can take your place
You’re the one that helps me to run this life.

It’s like a race that you can’t ever win
But with you I feel like I could do anything
That I can get up and win.

You’re always straight up with me
You won’t tell me a lie
But you’ll tell me if I’m wrong
Man you remind me of a beautiful song.

You’re my role model
The one I look up to when
I don’t know what to do
I look up to you.

You’re the one that helps me
When life seems wrong
And I feel like I can’t go on
You’re the one that I go to when I need a word of hope
You’re the one that keeps me going.

You’re the one that puts me in place
When I’m getting out of line
And when I wine and cry that I can’t do it
Your there to show me how to clean, cook, and the most valuable
Thing you taught me was love.


I remember the times we would sit on your bed and talk
You even understood when I talked even thou you could barely
Understand me but you’re my mom and this is how much you mean
To me.

    Beautiful expression of trust and faith in a person. The person who has set the value system in place for the rest of one's life. (Report) Reply
