Mother's Day Poem - I'm Becoming my Mom!

A Mother's Day-- beautiful song by Jim Brickman (Listen while you read perhaps)

Mommy's Little Girl?

I love my mother. She was my rock growing up, my supporter, my confidante, my best friend. "Daddy's little girl" gets lots of attention, but does it match the closeness of a mother and daughter?

Even if mommy is close as a child, times change, though. Now, I’m a woman. I take care of myself. I rely on myself. I'm all grown up now.

But am I really? Or am I still that little girl that longed to be with her mother, depending on her for attention, support, and protection, among a lot of other things...? Am I still Mommy's girl?


Me as a little girl

Mom made me some really cool clothes!

Bruises and Boo-Boos

Bruises and boo-boos

Gossip and lies--

The woman just smiles

As the little girl cries.

Hot chocolate and Mommy

On wet, rainy days--

The woman sits quietly

As the little girl plays.

Mud pies and Barbies

And Timey-Tell dolls--

The woman stands strong

As the little girl falls.

Harsh words and secrets

And Daddy’s good-byes—

The woman moves on

As the little girl hides.

Tears and confusion

And unexplained sighs--

The woman grows up

As the little girl dies.

Mom and Me at Our College Graduation

My cool mom came to the university to go to college; she lived with my brother and me. There was even an article written about us in the campus paper. Mom and I graduated in the same ceremony!

There! I’ve finished another little poem

About a little girl growing up,

Just like I have—

Or so I think…sometimes.


My mom is proud of me.

I’m a grown woman.

I have a house, a car,

A job that pays well.


I’m strong and independent,

Can support myself and

Make my own decisions—

Just like she taught me.


And I can speak my mind

And question her logic

And disagree, sometimes sternly,

Because of what she’s made me.


She touched my heart and conscience

That often work against me.

Sometimes it’s too much to care so much…

And who do I turn to?


I have friends and siblings

And a guy for many years.

And I cherish and need them,

Yet Mom often I run to…Dadgummit!


How silly I am

When suddenly my eyes

Usually tough and dry

Tear up when I think of Mom.


Thank God for My Mother

Do we ever really NOT need our mothers? I believe the answer is a big, fat NO! I hurt for those who did not have a wonderful, caring mother who instilled in them a sense of right and wrong, self-worth, independence and drive, and all the other important qualities that sends a child out to be successful in the world. And love, love, love—so much unconditional love that no matter what you do and where you go, you you can always go back, and she will be there. I have that kind of a mother. Not everyone can say that...and that hurts me for them. A loving mother is a great gift, especially when she becomes your best friend.

I’m in my 40s now. I will need my mother in my 50s…and in my 60s...and even my 70s. I have visions of my mom in her 100s (she’s very healthy!) and me in my 80s. And I will still be her little girl. I will still need her. I will still ask her for advice. And I will still need for her to comfort me, as any little girl would.

Yeah, she’s still here

But too far away

And visits become fewer

As life becomes fuller.


What do I do now, Mom?

Why did he do that, Mom?

Why is life so hard, Mom?

Am I doing the right thing?


Aren’t I tougher than that?

Can’t I do it on my own?

Sure I can—and I will!

But is that what Mom would do?


Gosh—sometimes I catch myself

Saying phrases she says

Giving advice she has given—

Did you brainwash me, Mom?


Sometimes I’ll even look over,

Catch a reflection in the mirror,

The turn of the smile, the eyes—

It’s my mother. It’s my mother!


God, I’m becoming my mother!

Does any girl think that will happen?

Oh, God, I’m becoming my mother!

Thank God I’m becoming my mother.

Thank God…’cause there’s nothing better.

Thank God for my Mother

Dear Victoria,

Yes you are..and will become your mom. My sister told me..there is this person that bumped into me, and never saw him again. "You see those hands? those are your mom's hands in you. You see you...or you feel every beat of your heart as we talk or read? That's your mom's heart beating with you. Ever talk to each other...and as you both reach a matureness, sometimes end up saying the same word.." My sister told him, how did he know? He just walked by and saw in her eyes things nobody could see. Then he dissapeared in the middle of the night. So, Whether is genes or connectivity. There is a link for life. And is stronger in women, indeed. Your poems are so touching I jump back and forth and our mind can't keep up, when you take us back in time. And you dear friend were a beautiful little momma's girl...and you still do!

LORD

Oh my dear Victoria...this is an amazing and true account of a daughter's memory, appreciation, recognition, fear of, respect for, deference to, reverence for, awe of, honor of , envy of, disagreement with, consideration of and love for her mother. We all go through that time...and it repeats itself often, when we catch our mother in our own reflection..when we hear her in our words, when we muse over options, opinions and moods as she did. We see that gleam in our eye which is a mirror image of her...we are her daughter...forever and always.

WOW! This is a number ONE A-ONE FIRST CLASS flight into the mind and heart of women ... and the spirit of our relationship with our mother and she with us.

Love the entroduction and the poetry which, upon reflection; you then turn to prose....artistically and beautifully written.

ALL UPS my dear!!!!!

My sweet Lord! (True to the song!) :-) There's nothing wrong with being Mommy's Little Girl. The connection between mother and daughter is great when it's there, and I feel sorry for those who don't have it with their mothers or daughters. My mom and I are definitely connected by genes, influence, nature, nurture, and all that stuff! I enjoyed the comments about your sister, as well as your compliments to me. Always a pleasure...!

How very beautiful and expressive! It's so easy to take things for granted, even the most important and influential people in our life! A loving, caring mother who makes sacrifices for her children and who is always there for them is a true blessing. Sadly though, there are those who have grown up without a mother because of death or neglect, or other obstacles. Or they have mothers who are struggling with things like drug addiction and mental issues, and it's so sad that some people are robbed of the all the love a mother has to offer.

You were so lucky to have such a mother. I can only imagine. I enjoyed how the adult in the poem was still a little girl inside with all the needs and wants of a little girl but having to act big. Excellent poem.

Sunshine, I often pray that God will allow my mom to live 20, 30, 40 more years! And she may, b/c sometimes I think she's younger than I am. haha. She's a fountain of youth, energy, and all the optimism I never had. I'm sure you miss your mom. I don't have a daughter, but I do have nieces. I will never have that close relationship with a daughter that my mom and I share, but perhaps I can continue it with my nieces. After all, I am the "cool" aunt! :-)

'My Mother's Hands'

I remember…

Your tender hands

comforting me

when my hands are hurt

Your healing massage

flowing through my feet

when my fever are high

Your attentive hands

swinging the cradle

during my baby years

Your strict hands

waving that scary stick

raising us to be responsible

Your concern look

after that slap

which taught me to be mature

Your protectiveness

which came from your deep intent

to keep us safe

Your gentle hands

working non-stop

to put food on the table

Your playful heart

knowing how to survive

through adversity and trials

Your doubts and worries

when matters at hands

are closest to your heart

Your resilient strength

continuing to hold a light

for us when all is dark

Your harsh words

may seem like thorns

when we were children

Your temperament

we are learning to accept

now that we are adults

We are learning to accept

because you are our beloved mom

our one and only mom

Oh Victoria,

This hub was so very special. What a beautiful young lady you were and are still. Your mom and you look so much alike and the pictures say it all..the love you have for each other. My girls are 31 and 24 and are my best of friends. We as moms always want our daughters to be independent and strong...I do too see a glimpse of my mom as I pass by the mirror..it is amazing..Thank you for sharing this heartfelt hub. Your love for your mom shines through.

suebee62 4 years ago from South Carolina

Great Poem!!! I think we all of "little girls" become our mom when we grow up. I don't think we realize it unless we move away from our mom or our mom is no longer with us. Even though my mom is still here, there are a few things that I know I am like her, but since my grandmother has passed, my mother and I both can see how mom is like her mom. It is funny how as moms, we can see how much our daughter's are like us, but as daughter's, we can't see how much we are like mom until they aren't with us any longer.

I am continually telling my daughter that is so mom, she so disagrees.

Vicki, this is such a beautiful poem! Your poem gave the feeling of a Mom-daughter relationship -- so close, but resisting that closeness at times. I was the same way with my Mom, too, and I think it is a privilege to be able to go to your Mom and ask her advice, even if it makes you feel like you're not completely independent, at times. I can see why you are the way you are, with such a loving Mother! Have a wonderful Mother's Day, and thanks for sharing this poem.

Such an awesome poem which I can really relate to. I imagine in my mind's eye, the poem which your Mum could write for you on Mother's day. I wonder how it would read!

My mother once asked me to type what she hoped would be her autobiography. It was never written because she died quite soon afterwards. I was living far away and the internet was only just beginning and it made it difficult with only the post to rely on. As a daughter I know I would have been enriched by this process.

I would love for your Mum to write you a poem - perhaps you can ask her to do this sometime!

This is such a lovely tribute to her, more special because she can read it now.

Voted up and awesome.

Thank you for sharing your poem,

Best wishes,

Sally
