Thank You Mother


Published by Family Friend Poems June 2008 with permission of the Author.

To be a mother is not an easy task,
yet you do it proudly every day, no matter what is asked.
You have turned your baby into a beautiful young lady.
You were there for me since the very beginning and saved me countless tears.
The pushy and wise advice you gave will carry me through the years.
With my every mistake or wrongful deed,
you were always there to understand.
You put no limits on my dreams or anything else I wish to do.
You never forget to say you care or that you love me too.
The smile and tears upon your face when I achieve provides me with more value in my heart than you'd ever believe.
There is no other person that will shape my heart the way you've done,
your job finished perfectly for your precious daughters and son.
We have had a rocky road through triumph and catastrophe, hard time and despair,
but not a single moment of time of not having a wonderful mother there.
You have always put in your last with love, and my whole life is not enough time for me to repay you.
We always put our disagreements to the side and manage to make it through.
I know that my teen years have driven you crazy, but you have guided me with assurance along the way.
You have given me comfort and certainty with every breath I take within the day.
Your little girl is growing up, but your baby girl will always remain deep inside me.
There are not enough words that can thank you for how you've helped me emotionally and physically. 
I have my whole future ahead of me and you are the women that has led me and guided me toward the proper path.
How can one simple day prove that much thanks and love to someone who has pushed this far and still is working her way?
No other person deserves a more wonderful Mother's Day.

I really liked this poem. It is like the poet wrote this for me based on what my life is about. It touched me so much that I started crying. My mom had cancer a year ago and I am only 14 now. Her birthday is a week and a half away and I was looking for some poems to put on the walls for her surprise birthday party and I saw this one and I am just changing Mother's Day to birthday and this will definitely be on the wall.

So we have this culture of going back home after a year's work to spend the new year with our parents. I was looking for a special letter to tuck into the hamper I already got. This proves so useful. Thank you.

I was just looking for a great poem to use to give to my mother for mother's day (I couldn't afford to get her anything special and thought adding a poem to the gift I already have would add a personal touch), and came across this poem. Whoever wrote this poem, I thank you from the bottom of my heart because as I read it, I began to cry because word from word, I felt it in my heart! Thank you!

Amazing!!! Loved each bit of the poem and, well, can't have enough words to explain my feelings. How I wish I had my mom still alive and I could have expressed my love, affection and loads of thank you'd to her. But now that I don't have her by my side, have to be satisfied with all these lovely-worded poems written especially for moms. Miss you, mom, so very much.

My mom is the only person in this world, she is my world from the day I came into this world. She stood by me after papa passed away. From the age of 4 years she is my whole family, my sister as she still looks young, my friend, my guide, advisor and my only support. Today I teach hundreds of students just like her, today I am confident person, having a secured job all because of all her sacrifices. She took all pains, faced all sorrows and gave me all love and only love. I thank you for giving me this opportunity to write a few words about the most precious person of my world.

When I read this poem I cried and thought of my mother and I relationship she is my rock and even if I haven't always realized she made me who I am today and now that I'm a mother myself she has shown me how to be the best supportive, kind, loving, and understanding mother I am I wouldn't know what to do without my mother. She lights my world when it has gone dark and she has found me when I got lost and I will spend the rest of my life showing her how much I appreciate everything she has done for me.

On October 16, 2011, the police knocked on my door to tell me, "Elizabeth Briley is dead." "We need someone to come and get her baby."
Elizabeth is my 26 year old daughter. We were very close. She was in excellent health. She had a new apartment she was furnishing. She was a single mom. An honor student through school. I had spoke with her via telephone the day before. I did not see any danger signs. She was at an old "friend's" home, just "hanging out." Found dead by her "friend". No viewing of her body allowed. No cause of death at this time.
Now, I have Sophia Elizabeth Briley, my 16 month granddaughter, Elizabeth's gift she left to me. So many unanswered questions. No help from the authorities here.
I am grieving.

I saw this poem and it really touched me. I edited it a little to fit me and put it in a card and gave it to my mom. I didn't tell her I wrote it!!! In fact, I actually showed her this poem and told her it was the original. Thank You!!!

I have no way to thank my mum for all she has done. She has been there since the day I took my first breath love ya mum forever and always no matter how many fights and disagreements we have you will always my mother and therefore I love you through every day.

I fight with my mother all the time. I whine about every task she asks me to do. this poem taught me she does a lot for me and loves me lots.

Wow I'm crying.
this poem sounds like it was written for me to express my love, respect and gratitude. I love my mom but I find it hard to express my feelings for her and I sometimes feel that I don't show her love often and worry that maybe she thinks I don't love her....she means the world to me and there will never be a person greater than her. She is the wind beneath my wings. I wish I could tell her that!

This poem reminds me of the times when mom has helped me through terrible break ups and bad boyfriends, and the time in my freshman year when I was raped and my mom was there for me the whole time and I never even had the words to tell her how much I appreciated her until now when I read this poem I know especially what to tell her and thank her and how much I love her on her birthday.
Thank you.

I always fight with my mom about well, practically everything like any other teenager, but this poem actually showed how much my mom loves me. It makes me consider my "teen" actions now before I actually jump to conclusions and blow the roof off. Chao!

For me, this is the most beautiful poem! It was almost like it was written especially for me to give to my mom. It brought tears to my eyes and I hope my mom will feel the same joy when she receives it next Mother's Day. I'm a mom now and I hope that I can be half of the parent that she was to me...I've got big shoes to fill! Thank you for the inspiration in your poem.
