How do i love thee..let me count the ways -Elizabeth B Browning
....I love thee with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
*I normally could write up a storm without a hitch, even when in an assessment period,and really should concentrate on studies,but ...poetry..i am bad at poetry.
Its my mum's birthday/week so i am taking from other peoples works..talented people, forthright poems..*
Your hearts like a crystal,
Natural and bright,
It melts all my grief,
And sorrow from sight.
You nourished my cravings,
Since I was a pea,
You stood by my side,
And would walk through the sea.
You sacrificed so much,
I wish to repay,
With words and actions,
I’ll always convey.
Today is your Birthday!
My love is so true,
You are my mother,
And I thank God for – you.
by Martin Dejnicki
My Miracle Mother
Mom, I look at you
and see a walking miracle.
Your unfailing love without limit,
your ability to soothe my every hurt,
the way you are on duty, unselfishly,
every hour, every day,
makes me so grateful
that I am yours, and you are mine.
With open arms and open heart,
with enduring patience and inner strength,
you gave so much for me,
sometimes at your expense.
You are my teacher,
my comforter, my encourager,
appreciating all, forgiving all.
Sometimes I took you for granted, Mom,
but I don’t now, and I never will again.
I know that everything I am today
relates to you and your loving care.
I gaze in wonder
as I watch you being you—
my miracle, my mother.

My Mother, My Friend
Dear Mam, I want to let you know
how much you mean to me,
And express my love and gratitude
for all you've helped me be
You've been the perfect mother
Kind and loving too,
I grew strong with your support,
Dependable and true
You were always there to guide me
throughout my childhood years
You encouraged, praised, and loved me,
and wiped away my tears
And when I'd grown, and flown the nest
the bond between us grew,
Throughout the years your life and mine
have always been entwined,
The bonds of love, unbreakable,
withstand the test of time
Though I may not often tell you,
I hope you know it's true -
You've been the perfect mother,
and I'll always love you
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY MUM!
