Mother Poem

My Perfect Mother

I love to honor my mom in poetry. She passed in 2019 after battling small cell lung cancer. My mom was truly special. She was funny, loving, and so easy to talk to. She meant everything to me. This poem is for her.

She is my favorite rocking chair
A kitten soft and warm
She is the robin's song
She's the sun after the storm

My mother is the feeling
Of a strong hand holding mine
An arm around my waist
An experience divine

She's a never-ending summer's night
She's nectar to the bee
She's the feeling that I love
She's everything to me
