When I was a child, you would hold me tight
When I went to bed, you would kiss me good-night

At times I know, I was really bad,
You were always patient, not often mad.

As I got older, my love for you grew
My perfect flower, covered in dew.

No matter what I did, I knew you were there,
Always willing to forgive, showing me you care.

When I got married and moved away,
I thought about you just about every day.

The child that grew under my heart,
Showed me how much of you, that I was a part.

At times I needed you but I didn't call,
I knew how much you worried about us all.

I had so much inside, I wanted you to know
So hard, it was for me, to let my feelings show.

Although I didn't say it, I'm sure you could see,
That you meant the whole world to me.

There was no time to say good-by,
So now, deep inside of me, I cry.

I know that you are happy, up in heaven
Some souls have no one, you have seven.

I feel so empty I don't know what to do,
You have taken my heart with you.

I will always feel this emptiness within,
Until, my dear Mother, I see you again.

Until then I want you to know,
I love you Mom, I loved you so.

    Karla, I don't think there is a greater love then that we receive from our mothers here on this earth. I love reading poems when love is so expressed for a most appreciated mother. Have a wonderful day and congratulations on your win in the contest. Thank you for your kind comment. Love, carol
