About the Poem

I wrote this during my first year at college while I was four hours away, and began to realize how great moms really are.


When I was little and I cried
You lovingly held me, and let the last tear fall,
When I would scrape my knee
You'd bandage it up and say "be careful".
When my birthday was horrible, you smiled
And promised the next would be perfect.
When I would lose my temper,
You had a way to calm me down.
When my friends left me behind,
You gave me ice cream and said
"they'll come around"
When I had a nightmare
You'd tuck me in your bed and
Reassured me you'd never let harm find me.
When my 7th grade crush liked another,
You made me see it was his loss.
When it was my sweet 16
You threw me a party fit for a princess.
And made it a day I would always remember.
When the love of my life left me alone,
So sweetly you said, "This too shall pass."
When I broke your heart with disappointment
You came to me and said, "I still love you".
I know that you think that I forgot all this,
And take all you sacrificed for granted,
But that's just not true.
At times I'm stubborn, as well as you,
But never doubt for half a second that
I love you.
Although I am growing up and someday soon,
I'll have to bandage my own knee,
You'll always be the bet mother.
And I'll always be your little girl.

Having lost my mom recently. Its amazing how much the little things that we took for granted now means soooooo much. Your poem reminded me of this and being a poet myself I couldn't have put it better.
your poem touches my heart, I love it! I love my mom too.
This poem had a feeling of pure love and real sincere feelings, and the last three lines were the best. I feel the same way, even though im growing up and my mother grows older, she'll still be the best mother, and i'll still be her little girl.
I really love your poem about moms
your poem was really nice i kind of understand your feeling i dont leave with my mom and its really hard to leave without her i love her alot , but you poem was great it made me cry.
my moms died 7 months ago of an accedental drug over dose she was my best friend she was disabled and was prescribed alot of medicine and so whenever she was awake i was with her every moment i could be with her and there is no one in the world like a girls mom no matter what fights they get into and that poem really truely touched me in many ways
I absolutely adored this poem. It reminded so much of the relationship that my mother and I share. It was so touching that I begun to cry.
great poem
this is the most beautiful poem I have ever read and it explains exactly how I feel about my mommy.
I just love this poem and moms. I had a mom and she died when I was I the eighth grade, and I miss her a lot.
This poem is so very true. I think it touched me so much because I was adopted and could have been left wondering why my biological mother left me to stand alone but instead I was blessed with a grandmother that was willing to take me in and become the mother that I probably would have never had. This is a really beautiful and touching poem that tells it like it is for me.
I loved this poem. Of all the poems i've ever found here on the internet, this was the one that best described me and my mom. This was the best.
