Mother...I Love You - Poem by Christine Hamilton

Mother, I wish you could know of
all tose times I am thinking of you-
Wondering what you are doing
and feeling.

Hoping you are happy and having
a special day.
I wish you could hear me speak
so highly of you to my friends, and
all the good things I hear when
others speak of your remarkable

I wish that you could see the pleasure
I find in my memories of you; and
how often I look to you for
guidance in my life, how much
I value your opinion, admire your
ability to accept people and
things as they are.

Mother, I wish you could know
how often I think back to all
those times you appeared so calm,
seemed so happy.

Looked so courageous-even if you
felt none of these things- just so
I could feel the security of a
safe and happy childhood.

I wish you could see how much
clearer I see you now' how much
more involved my feelings for
you have become.

I wish I had said
' I Love You, Mother '-everyday
of my life-because I do.
