A beautiful smile, a soft voice,
A kind heart and a soft hand.
This is what comes to my mind
When I think of my mother.

Always forgiving, rarely complaining,
Through the many hardships she had to endure.
Taking care of the children,cooking and cleaning,
Trying to read a book inbetween.
Good at sewing, knitting and crochet,
Not forgetting embroidery too.

Taught me to be patient and kind
To take one day at a time.
Embrace all people, don't say anything unkind.
Treat others the way you would want to be treated
She would say.
And don't forget to say your prayers each day.

I am thankful to God for the time I had with her,
Resentful at times because she was taken away too soon.
Never had a chance to say I am sorry
Or to give her a big hug
And say Thank you and I love you.

Nothing like Mother's love!!!

Wonderful poem Starry. Your poem reminded me a poem by Swami Vivekanandha, that starts like

"Hero's will and Mother's love..."

Great flowers.
Mother's day is a very special time to tell her how much I love to be with her.

Beloved Dreamer 1:35 PM  

Starry, this is a lovely poem about your mother. We all wish we had had the time to tell our parents goodby and how much we loved them. In my heart, I believe that they know now what was not said then. Just keep that in your heart dear friend.

Starry: I cannot ask you more than this. I didn't have the courage to write with so much deep inside about my mom. It is hard for me coz I know tears run thru' my eyes.

Thank you starry:))

'Never had a chance to say I am sorry
Or to give her a big hug
And say Thank you and I love you.'

Don't fret Lalitha,mothers don't expect formalities and they have a way of understanding their children.Beautifully written.Didn't your daughter maya write about you?I'd have loved to read it.
