I like that some people can true expressed the love to the mothers from deeping of their heart and to be so luck to grown up with a wonder full mother,i was not so luck but today we sharing a bond and i wish i could writing a poem espressing my feelings but i cannot because i am scary to break this bond. You are very luck and hope youllcontinue sharing this love forever. Litza Great poem.

My Treasure - For Mom

I look back on these years
To see how far I've come and grown,
I take a trip down memory lane,
And what I see has shown ...

That every step I've taken,
You have been there by my side ...
From infancy to adulthood,
We've stood the test of time.

You cradled me and nurtured me,
Through all these many years;
You held me and did comfort me,
Through happiness and tears.

You'd pick me up when I would fall,
You'd dust me off and then,
Encourage me to get back on
That horse and ride again.

Your constant care and loving,
And your warm inviting heart,
Has always been a treasure that
I knew would n'er depart.

If I could be "just half" the person
You have been to me ...
Then you have taught me well dear mom,
For in my heart I see ...

A woman whose most gentle soul,
Embraces me each day ...
A woman whom I dearly love,
Much more than words can say.

My mother is my hero and I love her more than words can express. She is blind for the most part, 82 years old and lives alone. I feel this poem says a little of what I feel for her. Thank You Kit McCallum for writing this beautiful poem.
Elias
This is perfect. You know, at the present moment me and my mom are not in good talking terms and since my marriage, it seems as if i have distanced myself from her. This is some kinda inspiration which i want to use and send to her with my apologies for all the wrongs i've done ss she turns 50 this year

The Poem was Great but i can't relate because my mother was never there she left at the age of two and all that i want do is forget about all that pain she caused all of us how a mother can pick up and leave that way i will never have any idea not even to this day

this poem deserves a 10 out of 10. It makes me relise how much my mum really means to me and how it makes me think better of her rather then the memories of the hard times of my childhood.

The reason i voted for it was because my mother passed away over a year ago and the poem reminded me of all the things she used to do for me and how much i miss her. It is a great poem.

I love this poem because it is so true! I feel so sad for those girls (and boys) who don't have a good relationship with their mother (or father). I don't know what I would do without my mother. she is the best and can make anyone laugh. If I grew up to be just like her, that would be perfect.
joe
I really like it. it touched my inner fellings it made me want to call my mom and say that I loved her and that i always will.
