Mother Poem by Richard Wlodarski


Rating: 4.9

What is a mother?
Someone whose life
Gave birth
To a new soul

Someone whose heart
Pumped blood to life
Whose eyes opened fresh ideas...
The eyes of opportunity

What is a mother?
Someone whose true love
Breathed passion into
My very being

Someone whose tears of joy
Taught me how to laugh
And whose tears of sorrow
Taught me how to cry

What is a mother?
Leading to being
With humanity

Thank you Mom
For teaching me
To walk and talk
And negate hate

Thank you Mom for being there
When fear paralysed me
Holding my hand in safety
Everything is...OK

Your mother was your teacher, your caretaker/nurse, counselor, best friend and your guide to all of your sources of true wisdom! Tell you mother you love her and happy mother's day!

An excellent assessment of mothers, Roxanne. I send the message of love to her in Heaven. Thank you for the gesture.

I esp. enjoyed the 'tears' stanza and 'negate hate'. ;) bri p.s. Of course 'mother' takes on a whole new meaning when one is off and says 'you Mother' (or.... a longer version) to an adversary. I use it when speaking to inanimate objects...primarily. ;) bri
