I Will Always Be Your Mom

To all the mothers of the world, I wish you a very Happy Mother’s Day!

I Will Always Be Your Mom

We toil, we worry, mothers do
Our bodies bleed and stretch
Our hearts and minds grow
and love pours out

Soft bellies for a weary head
Breasts warm pillows soothe
We listen to your  heartbeat
light and quick

We sing a song or three or four
An angel in our midst
We watch your sleeping breath
rise and fall

We wipe tears and noses
Little bottoms, too
Reach for your hand
even as you push away

Moments blur and vanish
There is much to recall
But the treasured ones,
come back like fluttered heartbeats

We celebrate your joys
Listen to your fears
We watch you grow too fast
and hope we did it right

When you drift, brave and steady
We hold you closer still
Our love fierce and strong,
I will always be your mom

  1. Being a parent breaks your heart. My 13-year old is just now starting to show signs that she’d rather spend time with her friends than me. I know that’s a healthy, natural progression, but I don’t like it. Not one bit.

    1. I totally get what you’re saying. I have a 12-year old who doesn’t want to be seen with me. Whaa! It really feels like yesterday that he was a babe in my arms. A lot of breaking hearts they do! I don’t like it one bit either.


  2. Happy Mother’s Day, my dear Amy. That was so beautiful – I could feel every word and experience you illustrated. You must be an incredible mom, and I’m sure your boys know that. Have a lovely day. xo


  3. Amy – Many more years – Happy Mothers Day!

    “M” is for the million things she gave me,
    “O” means only that she’s growing old,
    “T” is for the tears she shed to save me,
    “H” is for her heart of purest gold;
    “E” is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
    “R” means right, and right she’ll always be,
    Put them all together, they spell “MOTHER,”
    A word that means the world to me.

    1. Mihran, thank you! Your poem is beautiful. Thanks for sharing that with me. I can feel the love you have for your mother. She must be so proud of you.


Take it away.
