Your Mother, My Mother

Updated on May 8, 2011

Words just do not measure.

Tender kisses and loving hugs, some of my memories of my mother above,

Just a woman, of whom I am proud, nothing special, nothing to be found.

She cared for me in her loving way, although today she can not stay,

She sits at the right hand of God, and looks down on me with so much love.

Memories cherished of a smiling face, auburn hair, and clothes of good taste.

She was smart, so selfless and kind, like any other mother, whose not left behind.

For in my heart she will always remain, like a beautiful rose that I can not name.

She is the star at night, the guiding light and the pillows of kindness that I put my head on at night.

She is the soft summer breeze that caress's my face, the rain and the sunshine for all to embrace, .

I miss you mum, as every day passes, you did your best to make me happy.

I miss the smell of your perfume, the gentle touch from the person whom,

sacrificed your life to let me live, joy and happiness, this  tribute I give.

In memory of you, I planted a flower, an azalea to show me the colour,

of those stunning blue eyes, that I remember so well,

smiling down on me to keep me from harm, and tenderly to watch me from afar.

Good night sweet Princess, I will dream of you, until we meet again at life's upward hill.

      '...until we meet again, at life's upward hill.' Your loving words expressed in appreciation are beautifully shared thoughts. My mother passed earlier this year and this poem could fit her also. Thank you for sharing your tribute.

      Hello b. Mar,Eiddwen, Leelee and Foss, thank you ladies for your lovely kind and thoughtful comments. My mother and I often had a volatile relationship, but I always loved her and respected her. Tragedy deals a cold hand at times and when she fist took her own life, I hated her for leaving me alone. At fourteen years old I thought I was very grown up when in fact I was still a little girl, and knowing now instead of just remembering then, forgiveness is a wonderful thing. Much love xxx

      Oh bluestar, this is truly beautiful. I am sure that your mum has her biggest smile ever for her loving and caring daughter.

      She is with you and never more than when you were composing this beautiful and tender poem.

      A daughter's undying love for a deserving mother.

      You have really touched me with this one and I send you loads and loads of hugs.

      take care and God Bless you my friend.

      Take care

      bluestar, my friend,

      "a star at night, the summer breeze"... what a comfort to know that our dear Mothers are in the heavens above watching over us and protecting us as only they can. This speaks of the unbreakable bond of love between a mother and daughter, as powerful as it gets-- thank you.
