A Short Poem for Mum
by Charley, © 2003
Sometimes we get busy in our lives each day,
We neglect to tell people things we should say.
As I pondered these thoughts with you in mind,
I realized how important it was for to find time.
I want to tell you my thoughts on paper,
So when we 're apart you can read them later.
You've always been there for me this I knew.
You're not just a Mother, but a dear friend too.
You're a very special lady, who showered me with love
I am thankful for you as I've told God above.
This poem cound never be sent to any other
Because it's written specially for you, my Mother.
More concise words about Mum:
"A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us when adversity takes the place of prosperity when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts."
"The mother's heart is the child's schoolroom."
Henry Ward Beecher
"An ounce of mother is worth a ton of priest."
"A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.
