Mothers Day Poem

The Centerpiece Of My Life

A girl writes a tribute to her Mom in honor of Mother's Day.


© Victoria A. Ledet
Mom, you are the centerpiece of my life.
The light in my sun.
I can't thank you enough for all you have done.
You make me smile when I am sad.
You are the best mother a child could ever have.
You console me deeply when something's wrong.
You know when something's happened or something's going on.
I appreciate the love you bring in.
You cheer me up when I lose.
You make me laugh when I win.
You turn my moon into a sun.
You've done too much though my life has just begun.
You give me a shelter and food to eat.
You are the soles in my shoes
The bones in my feet.
You support me and hold me tall.
You stand me high and don't let me fall.
You make my life easier in every way.
That's why I want to say Happy Mother's Day!

  • This story really touches me because my mom and I have a really strong relationship. I mean yeah we have our ups and downs but I think that every teenage daughter and mother have those. But there is a difference with my mom and I, we don't let that get to us and we are always sucking up to each other after we have one of those I guess you would call arguments. I love my mom with all of my heart and would do anything for her in a heartbeat. Actually, probably quicker than that. I love you mom and always will!!

  • I am just currently being adopted and I have been in adoption care for eight years now and I have lived at this place for four years! I got really close to the house parent and I had to leave her this Christmas!! She taught me everything I needed to know. She is the centerpiece of my life!!

  • I really love this poem, but I changed it up and read it for my grandma. She really loved it. She is my all and the centerpiece in my life.
