My Mother Dear

She brought me into this world with her love,
One of the precious gifts from up above,
From her womb ‘til I stand on my own feet,
She did everything for my benefit.

She was my first teacher and she was stern,
For her, in life I have so much to learn,
Sometimes, with her great love I’m also hurt,
She is not perfect, but she wants the best.

I salute her for being a martyr ,
Serving her family who is so dear,
She is my sunshine during stormy day,
My guidance and strength when I lost my way.

I’m so lucky that she is my mother
I am of what I am because of her.

A dedication to my loving mom. That's really her. Ever since, she works so hard for the family as a dressmaker. She'd sacrificed a lot for us especially when we were  young( my 2 brothers and I)  because according to her and my dad, we were so sickly especially when we were still babies ;))).I love her so much and I'm so proud of her. HAPPY HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

    Great tribute. It's an easy thing to forget what great trouble they went through just have us roaming around in the world. Including all they do - and still do - while we grow up. Wonderful! I especially liked your couplet at the end... summed it up nicely.

    CONGRATULATIONS, my awesome poetry sis Leo,,! Thank you for the nice and wonderful heartfelt poem about mom's. I'm sorry I missed one of your newest poem. My sister Sidney, helped me judge this contest and the surprise one. LOL, I've been busy with the new cat my daughter and I adopted... crazy :-) I'm glad I discovered the poem in my contest. ~LOVE~ Linda

    That's why you're a love Leonora--a combination of respect, acceptance and a maturity that has grown from it all and that allows us to look within ourselves and see our own faults---but even better--the good things we learned and will carry on---hopefully! This is wonderful!!

    This was so wonderfully done!!!! Sonnet or not, this came from the heart. When an expressive piece like this is about Mom, there should be no form to say it in, only honesty should be the form. Beautiful.
