English Poem : Mother

November 18, 2008


When I was a small child, I cried

My Mother lifted and hugged

She pampered and cuddled

Until with joy I smiled

She always smiles when I am happy

And consoles me when I am sad

She encourages me for the outstanding marks I get

and makes me study hard till I sweat

I always love to see a smile on her face

When she starts her running race

I laugh and giggle to see my mother at best

Who finishes the race always the last

When I listen to my mother’s advice she feels glad

When things go awfully wrong she feels sad

When she’s furious she hits me

To make me what I need to be

I am happy for whatever she is to me

To accept me what I would be

I always thank our heavenly father

Who has blessed me with a loving mother

Anywhere I travel round the globe

She’ll always be with me I hope

North, south, east or West

My mother is always the best
