Mother Poem

Poem About What It Means To Be A Mother

After putting my children to bed one night I wanted a moment to myself. It had been a normal chaotic, busy day and I have always used writing, especially poetry, as an outlet to relax. I sat on my porch with my journal and started thinking about something unique I could do for all the moms I knew (friends and family alike), that wouldn't be costly for Mother' Day-a week away. I wrote this poem, rolled each in ribbon and put them in their mailboxes. I was told it was the best present ever received.

This is lovely and how true! There is no bond like the bond between mother and child. It's unbreakable! This is well-said.

Baby dolls and dinosaurs-
one that cries, one that roars
The pitter patter of little feet-
a bike race in which they want you to compete
Fruity Pebbles, pancakes, no wait! a pop-tart-
those daily moments that steal your heart
One throws tantrums, the other just pouts-
ahh, the joys of motherhood- what life is all about
Another birthday - two paychecks in all-
but, it is so worth it with smiling memories on the wall
From late night tears to early morning grumps-
through all the bruises, scrapes and bumps
The kisses and hugs, the encouraging words-
from nursery rhymes to the bees and the birds
The laughter, the memories, those looks in their eyes-
never trade it for anything - never compromise
The toys left out, the clothes on the floor-
these are the moments we mothers live for
For we are the ones who are there through it all-
to always make it better and pick them up when they fall
From kissing their boo-boos and making sure they're fed-
passing down stories while tucking them into bed
Through the weight gain, cravings, labor and more-
to that one special moment we spend 9 months waiting for
Eighteen years is what they say, but our work is never done-
a lifetime of tears, laughter, sadness and fun
Nothing in the world can even come close-
to the one special bond God made matter the most
A relationship only two certain people can share-
a mother and her child, nothing will ever compare...
