You Are More Than Just My Mother


A strong, emotional bond
that only a few
are lucky enough to touch in a lifetime.

Helping me
in ways you don't understand
being there for one another
to laugh,
to cry,
to guide each other
through this journey.

We share quality moments
as I listen to your caring, tender words
you will remain in my heart
for all time.

You are more
than just my mother.

A mother is your first friend, your best friend, your forever friend.

Peggy,

I'm so sorry to hear that you lost everyone so early.

I'm glad the two of you were together for awhile.

Mother's can be a best friend.

Take care.

Denise,

Thank you.

I'm glad you still have her, but I can only imagine the loneliness she feels with him being gone 29 years.

My Mother's husband just passed away in December.

She will be 81 in July.

Take care and have a nice week.

Your lovely poem about your mother reminds me of mine. We were also best friends. My dad died decades before she did, plus both of her sons (my brothers). We helped each other through good times and bad. I miss her!

Denise McGill from Fresno CA on April 29, 2021:

How beautiful! I still have my mother but maybe not for much longer. She is winding down. She will be 90 in July and she wants to go be with Dad. It's hard to think of losing her but it's also hard to think of her being so lonely for all these years without Dad. He died 29 years ago.

Blessings,

Denise

Misbah,

Thank you.

I am fortunate to still have my mother here beside me.

Have a blessed day.

Misbah Sheikh from The World of Poets on April 29, 2021:

Brenda, this is a beautiful poem. The relationship between a mother and daughter is the most beautiful relation ever. Mothers are the daughter's very first best friend.

Thanks for sharing this beautiful piece

Blessings and Love
