Mama I Love You To No End

I know I pushed your buttons more than
  I can count 
I know I have given you extra silver strands  
 though I like it on you (wink) 
I know I have caused you some sleepless  
 nights and ruined your appetites 
I know I have given you the silent treatment
 because it’s easier for me
I know I have caused your tears to escape  
 from their hidden ponds 
I know every time I caused you pain
 my heart is in a dark place

I can not undo my mistakes and failures 
Although if I was to be permitted a chance 
 to go back in time and correct them
And if I could unzip my heart to show you 
How much it breaks me deeply 
 than words could ever express 
How much I love you more than words can say
How grateful I am to be your daughter 
How much I need you more than anyone 
No questions ask
I would full heartedly happily do it in a flash

You’re such a sweet and loving mother
You let nothing to spoil your golden heart 
 regardless of the hurtful things I have caused you
You kiss away all my misery 
You continue to enchant me
You’re always on stand ready for when I need you
You love me unconditionally 
You make my heart smile 

Thank you forever 
I love you to end


This poem was inspired by Silent One’s most beautiful tribute to his mother… My respect to the moms universally for their unconditional love for their children.

So beautiful..heartfelt and loving dear Akkina. There is nothing like a Mother’s unconditional love. I love my Mom more than words can say and I love being a Mom to my son and daughter. It’s a blessing every day. Hugs to you, Susan :)

Wow! What a beautiful dedication to your mother, Akkina! When we're young we tend to do naughty things, but not with the aim of hurting anyone. No one expects you to undo those mistakes, as long as you leant from them. ~ Warm regards, my friend // paul

Mothers, no matter how much love they give to us, they always seem to have more.

This is so sweet and heartfelt and so beautiful. This kind of reminds me also of a song. So touching and lyrical with so much depth. Mothers are precious, and to have and receive love from them is a blessing too and one that should be cherished. Your love for your mom is so very evident here. Bless your beautiful soul. A fave from me

Very sweet Akkina. Not all mothers give unconditional love to be sure. But blessed are you for yours. I'm glad your heart is smiling!

Words graceful my friend--resonating in verses of love for your mother. Reflecting on echoes of past your regrets say aloud --how dearly you love you mother, my friend! A touching write, Akkina.

This is beautiful Akkina. I love the ...tears to escape from their hidden ponds and the line ...if I could unzip my heart to show you! Excellent, my friend :)
