About the Poem

This poem was a gentle thank you to my kind and loving mother, who's warmth and love guides me daily.

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.

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 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
lindsey

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

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.

s
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.
Kay
I think this poem shows how much this woman really thinks and feels about her mom. Her mom was a great woman and if she can be just 1/2 the woman that she was to her children then she feels she will be doing a pretty good job. I know how she feels. My mom was the best mom any girl could have asked for.
stephanie

milo
i loved this poem and it touched me dearly
Michelle
This poem gets my vote because I have been seperated from my mother after 30 years of her being so close to my life. Mom and I have been through abuse and we have seen through the other side. 2 years ago I found myself having to move to Canada to be closer to my husbands family. In order to do that I had to leave mine behind and though I miss all of my family and I miss all the babies I have never met it is my mom I miss the most, who through it all gave me the strength I needed to be the woman and mother I am today. I love her I miss her and I feel this poem touches that sentiment so greatly. Thank you
tina
Beautiful tribute to all Mom's!
Elizabeth
This makes me see, that as much as I despise my mom for not letting me do the things teens should do, I see how good she has always been to me, and it showed me how much I really do love her. Thank you so much.

this is a beautiful poems. I don't quite get along with my mother since I was 13 yrs old. But Since I found out I was pregnant with my little girl, she was there with me in the hospital. I guess that shows she still care about me, I love my mother. I wish we can get along more. She hasn't spoke to me for 2 months after she foudn out- but now I'm trying to get along with her, because I need my parents to help me, and show me how to gtow my child. Um I love this poem.
Karen
this is a really touching poem that can really relate to some people.

Mohammad
An excellent piece of poetry. Motherhood is universal regardless of time and space. In my opinion it is the single instance of eternal compassion that touches all creations on earth. It is Love of mother that remains a home truth at the spectrum of life to mankind since inception. I do share the great passion of love for Mom of the poet. The poem is representative of Love for Mother all across the barrier of time,culture,geography and space. Thanks NIPPON
