Mother Daughter Poem

Leaving For College Poem And Celebrating Parent's Influence

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 me, and gave it to her for Mother's Day. She LOVED it!

Your Place


Published by Family Friend Poems May 2011 with permission of the Author.

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.
