A Poem For Mom

You are the sunlight in my day,
You are the moon I see far away.
You are the tree I lean upon,
You are the one that makes troubles be gone.
You are the one who taught me life,
How not to fight, and what is right.
You are the words inside my song,
You are my love, my life, my mom.
You are the one who cares for me,
You are the eyes that help me see.
You are the one who knows me best,
When it's time to have fun and time to rest.
You are the one who has helped me to dream,
You hear my heart and you hear my screams.
Afraid of life but looking for love,
I'm blessed for God sent you from above.
You are my friend, my heart, and my soul
You are the greatest friend I know.
You are the words inside my song,
You are my love, my life, my Mom.

I had a lump in my throat while reading this to my daughter. She was looking for a poem to narrate on Mothers' Day. I have copied it and will go to meet my mom today and say it out to her. Those of you who know Hindi, this poem is akin to the Song ''Meri maa'' (my mother) in the film ''Taare Zameen Pe'' (Stars on the Earth). That too is a very moving song. ....... Awesome poem.

I cried to!!! it was very emotional, My mom was very sick. I tried to sing this to my mom and then we both cried because she liked this poem. here is how my story started. it is one day before my mothers birthday I wanted to by her a present but I realized I don't have enough money so I decided to just say a poem so I researched a poem and then I found this I read it and then I cried and cried. I can't stop crying it is so emotional. I memorized it and then the next day I realized that it was my mothers birthday I said "happy birthday" and then I recited the poem and I also recited another poem and she cried and cried the end. now I will start to put a tune in it I hope she will like it

I would never leave you again mother to go in pain....

Hi, loved it so much, yes I cried, it's so relevant to how most mothers are. My mom is 87 years, going strong, but I feel sorry for her now as we 8 daughters of her have left the house after our marriage SHE LIVES WITH HER ONLY SON, so she feels lonely and lost some times. Watches TV and does her prayers all the time. Anyways she has been GR888888 MOM TO ALL OF US

Hi Champagne,
Thanks very much for sharing this very beautiful poem. It's so touching it made me missed her more.
That exactly describes my mom. I and my siblings are just so lucky having given her to us by God. And if I were to live my life all over again, I'd still want only her as my mom. It's her birthday today and it's just so sad celebrating without her. Can't help but cry knowing that she's no longer around and never will be. :(
Know that we will always LOVE YOU FOREVER AND EVER, Mother, and will never forget you...
