My Mindful Mother - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion

My mother is thoughtful,
Mindful of all my needs;
With love and care for me,
Showing me her good deeds.

Hearing my cry in crib,
She will come running;
Holding me so softly,
As she dances with humming.

As I feel her loving arms,
And her warm embrace too;
I am truly safe and sound,
Keeping me cool in her view.

At times I smile in my sleep,
Knowing that she's on my side;
Awakened, trying to get off my crib,
She will take me to a joy ride.

As I crawl across the floor,
Grasping anything around;
My mother is on guard,
Aware of harm on the ground.

Learning to stand and walk,
She guides me all the way;
Always alert from the start
Till the end of each day.

She begins the day with a smile,
With joy before the task and after;
I won't forget in my lifetime
My ever mindful mother.

    It is a beautiful tribute to mother having haunting expression with nice diction. We can't forget her love and affection. She takes proper care of us. A mother guides the child to crawl and teaches to stand and walk. She does everthings with smiles. Beautifully crafted poem nicely shared. I quote..
    She begins the day with a smile,
    With joy before the task and after;
    I won't forget in my lifetime
    My ever mindful mother.
    Thanks for sharing.
