My Mother's Hum - Poem by Rose Marie Juan Austin

My mother hums
The top ten popular songs
Of the day
Like multiple pieces
Strung together

She hums
So beautiful
And sweet
That makes the birds
In the trees
Chirp and tweet

Every single moment
I wonder
Why she hums
Here
There
And yonder

She hums
So wonderful
That gets her through the day
A lovely hum
That keeps my feelings at bay

She hums
A special song
When she tucks me into bed
Conquers my fear of darkness
And drives away
The ghosts at night
That linger in my head

How can I survive
This everyday life
I will never know
A never ending struggle
If it were not for her
I could be nowhere

    Mom's songs are ever beautiful and very sweet. Mother gives support and courage. She shoes light in darkness. Her affection is unlimited. This is a great poem shared here in her tribute.10 (Report) Reply

    Thank you so much for appreciating my poem. Indeed, a mother's affection is unlimited. Our mothers love us unconditionally from womb to tomb even beyond. I presumed you love your mother so much too.
