You Are My Mother - Poem by Howard Simon

You are my mother
More supportive than a brother
You are my mother
More compassionate than a sister

You are my mother
My very important other
You are my mother
My first teacher and helper

You are my mother
Because of you I am greater and stronger
You are my mother
Because of you I am richer and better

You are my mother
My love for you grows bigger and sweater
You are my mother
My love for you will last forever

    To love and respect your Mum is so valuable. Not everyone understands the true meaning of being a Mother.
    Your children really are a piece of you.
