I was watching you sleep the other day
And prayed that it would last
The peace that rested on your face
I'd never seen in the past

I was watching you speak a while ago
And hoped that you'd go on
The way your words, they had no end
Your Spirit seemed so strong

I was watching you fight the other day
And prayed my tears would dry
All this I knew was done for me
And couldn't figure out why

I was watching you smile a couple of days ago
And stared in total awe
Was it me who made you shine?
Was that triumph that I saw?

And all this time you've waited
And all this time you've helped
And all the things you sacrificed
For me to grow up well

And all the tears you've dried
And all the pain you soothed
And all the truths you have to hide
Without one simple Thank You

But I was watching you today
And I realized that I can't wait
To tell you how much I appreciate
And love you in every way

Thanks Mom

Your words about mother brought tears to me. Three years ago, my mother passed away. She was 92+ at that time but very happy personality. Being the youngest child, I have seen her just walking and taking care of us all, her own children and her grandchildren...without any expectation, regret or any sign of fatigue...just doing happily for others. Whenever I was in bad mood she would understand herself and guide me. I miss my mother very much, but I'm happy she must be resting in heaven.

As a mother of three grown children I can honestly say to have your child write something as beautiful and loving as this poem is the greatest gift she could ever receive. I can't think of a better honor as a mother.

Hello I am 29 and I think that this poem is beautifully done and one of the best I have seen in a long while. Ok I have to be honest it made me cry, because it reminded me of the time that I have observed my mom and how much she is there for me and I never told her how much I appreciated her. I think I am going to surprise her tomorrow at lunch and tell her how she means to me. Thank you very much.
