About the Poem

A poem telling my mom how much she means to me, how much I appreciate all she's done for me, how I feel about her, and that I should have told her sooner.

Mom writes poems, too, and taught me how writing helps you deal with things in life. Like a form of counseling. She wrote me a really special poem when I graduated from 8th grade, and it was that poem that made me really understand how much I mean to her and how well she really knows me.

For My Mother, My Friend

I donít think I ever told you,
how much I appreciate the things you do.

You have been there when I cried,
and always known when Iíve lied.
You taught me how to read and sing,
and punished me when I did the wrong thing.

You were there to tell me goodnight,
and always knew how to make things all right.

I look up to you, Mom,
and I love you very much.
I donít know what it would be like
without your loving touch.

You will always come first in my heart,
no matter how far we are apart.

Mom, I have not told you,
I donít know where Iíve been.
Youíre not only just my mother,
youíre forever my best friend.

Happy Mothers Day

This poem makes me think about my mom and I. this poem is perfect when you are close to your mom. Thanks for writing such a perfect poem
Patti
I loved this poem because my mother is not just my mother, she is my very best friend I have ever had. It wasn't always that way of course but as I grew older I realized how very smart and wonderful she is. She is the most loving and giving person I've ever known, although she doesn't think so. I know there is a place in heaven for her when that day comes to go home to daddy and the Lord.
Xandria

This poem is very special, because it's true, my life is kinda like the authors. She did a very good job of writing and expressing this to her mother and the world. I'm giving this to my mother for her birthday.

THIS POEM IS A REALLY GREAT ONE. IT MADE ME CRY WHEN I READ IT AND IT MADE MY MOTHER CRY WHEN I GAVE IT TO HER ON A QUILT, NOW SHE CAN SHE HOW MUCH I CAE FOR HER EACH TIME SHE USES IT. YOU ARE AN EXCEPTIONAL WRITER AND I CAN'T WAIT TO READ MORE, THE ONLY THIG I SUGGEST IS THAT YOU PUT A WARNING SIGN ABOVE THEM AND STATE THAT IT MADE CAUSE WATERY EYES.

This is one of the best poems I have ever had a privilege to read. As I read this poem I feel I am reading about my own daughter and myself. We are best friends also and she has just left for her first year of college. I feel like apart of me is missing and I know she feels the same way. It is going to take some time for us to adjust to this new way of life. But I am so glad you have shared this poem with all of us. I really think your mother is very proud of you. Oh and by the way my daughter writes poetry, too. Thanks so much for this poem.
