Poem: Mother

A poem for the most important person in my life – My Ma.

Dearest Ma,

To be a mother is not an easy task, yet you do it proudly everyday. You have been there for me since the very beginning. The pushy and wise advice you gave will carry me through the years. With my every mistake or wrongful deed, you were always there to understand. You never forget to say you care or that you love me too. The smile and tears upon your face when I achieve provides me with more value in my heart then you’d ever believe. There is no other person that will shape my heart the way you’ve done. We have had a rocky road through triumph and catastrophe, hard time and despair, but not a single moment of time of not having a wonderful mother there. You have always put in your last with love and my whole life is not enough time for me to repay you. We always put our disagreements to the side and manage to make it through. I know that my teen years have driven you crazy but you have guided me with assurance along the way. You have given me comfort and certainty with every breath I take within the day.

Your little girl is growing up, darling but your baby girl will always remain deep inside me. There are not enough words that can thank you for everything you have helped me through emotionally and physically. I have my whole future ahead of me and you are the women that has lead me and guided me towards the proper path.
Thank you for being not only my mom, but my best friend. Happy Birthday to my precious Ma!!!


being with you,
my head on your lap,
gives a sense that heaven isn’t
far from the steps of your feet.
Your every smile is home
for me, no matter where I am.

with you I feel safe.
your voice is every lovely lullaby I
ever heard.

You know the words
that sit hesitantly on my tongue.
just a passing of your hand over my head
brushes every worry away.

I have never seen the light
of heaven but I swear, every time you
look at me with your eyes full of love and happiness
it feels just like it.

I was never a daughter worthy of
your unconditional love,
yet in the showers of your kisses
and your warm encompassing hugs,
I feel an empty space filling up inside me.

you are my entire
Without you I have nothing
left to hold on to.

because you loved me
when I wasn’t so lovable.

You held me and took care of me,
You treated me like I was
everything in your life.
and you always say I am.

while the rest of the world
moves on and life gets tiring,
just know that I will be there
for you, like you’ve been there for me
every step of the way.


From your daughter,
