Poem: One Kind Hearted Soul

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Kind Hearted Soul is a poem about a mother showing her child more love than some will ever come to know. She didn't ask for anything in return. Oftentimes, doing without to provide for her child's needs. She taught her humanity by being kind to others. The child is proud of her & carries her kind hearted soul inside of her.

Kind Hearted Soul

She is the reason
behind my every breath,
she taught me
to challenge myself,
giving me more love
than some people
will ever come to know.

She made certain
I didn't go hungry,
that my clothes
were not tattered,
not asking for anything
in return.

She shared valuable time
with me,
oftentimes, doing without
just to give me
everything I needed.

She taught me lessons
about humanity,
as I watched her
treat everyone with kindness.

I am proud
to be her child,
carrying her kind hearted soul
inside of me.


A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one can take.

— Cardinal Mermillod
