Mother Daughter Poem

Leaving For College Poem

I wrote this poem in an advanced writing class my senior year in High School. I wrote it for my mother as I am the oldest child and was about to Leave the nest for college. I had it printed up and framed it along with a picture of her and I, and gave it to her for mothers day. She LOVED it!

Your Place

You've been there since I was young,
You've healed my cuts and pains.
You guided me through my sorrows
And helped Celebrate my gains.

But now the time has come,
I must start my life on my own,
And if you get lonely or miss my face,
Just remember. . .

I love you and no one can take YOUR PLACE.
