Sonnet - For My Mother On Mother's Day

Rating: 5.0


To you I owe this life I have today
Oh mother dear who was so very kind
Your love has led me to a brighter way
To live a life of dignity in mind

My eyes were opened through your loving hands
Lighted the path I walked on as a child
Taught me the ways to live in full command
Of my life, when I'm no longer a child

You instilled in me values of import
That have guided my life through all the years
To rise above in every life's discord
To take life's challenges and face my fears

Mother, I'm forever grateful to you
For giving me life, for your love so true

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
I lost my mom in 2006 and since then I have faced life without her by my side. I learned to stand on my own thanks to her nurturing I grew up to be responsible, resilient and independent. I will always treasure the times we spent together and the memories I had as a child with her.

Nudershada, this is simply lovely! I'm certain it would bring a smile to your Mother's face. She must have been proud and pleased with the way you grew into such a fine woman. Happy Mother's Day to you!

One of the best and most beautifully moving poems for a mother I have ever read! So very complete in love and sentiments. I am sure you were as good a daughter to her as she was a mother to you. And that you gave her much happiness and love too, as most good daughter's do.

Thank you dear Sandra for your heart warming comment. I hope I was as good to her as she was to me. We didn't have much time together as she passed on so soon.
