Mother Poem

Poem About The Love A Mother Provides

I'm a single mother of one from Georgia now living in North Carolina with dreams of writing, but now I'm going back to school to better myself.

Mothers Do It All

© Tukesha Ware
The first person to provide you with love and care
Confirmation that she'll always be there
Learning to walk, saying your ABCs
The first day of school and bruised up knees
Calming your fears, wiping away your tears
Countless late night talks throughout the years
Then there was high school prom
and that stuff you called art
Your first true love
and when he broke your heart
Don't forget that college class that made your cry
The first time you witnessed
someone close to you die
The job you didn't love, but would suffice
That tearful morning you gave your life to Christ
The proposal, the marriage, even the first fight
The big news, delivery, and sleepless nights
Now you get to give all that she has given to you
Unconditional love, guidance,
and experiences to form your own point of view
