Poem: Happy Mother's Day!

Updated on May 13, 2018

Happy Mother's Day!

My mother’s love is honest,

She tells the truths I don’t want to hear,

For the right reasons,

Definitely not for fear.


My mother’s eyes are sharp while mine are blind,

She doesn’t need marks to give directions,

She finds things I can’t find at home,

I’ll never have to feel alone.


My mother is the best doctor and lawyer,

She gives more than I ask for,

My health is her concern,

My actions she’ll discern.


My mother’s approval,

Becomes my father’s approval,

Her role is everywhere,

Like an octopus’ hands.


There is a mother in all of us,

But only one mother can handle the above,

She says she wants me to be happy,

That’s all that matters.

      A nice tribute poem to your mother Li-Jen. Yes, mothers always mean well and their main concern is usually for our welfare. My mother was much wiser than I.

      Thanks Sean, your wish is greatly appreciated...I cannot predict my future and my mum does not have high expectations. :) But I will have to achieve the smallest goals to please her. :)

      An excellent tribute to a mother who I believe is proud of the beautiful human you have become.

      I wish her to be there, by your side, for many years to see the miracles that you will achieve!
