A poem telling my mom how much she means to me, how much I appreciate all she's done for me, how I feel about her, and that I should have told her sooner.

Mom writes poems, too, and taught me how writing helps you deal with things in life. Like a form of counseling. She wrote me a really special poem when I graduated from 8th grade, and it was that poem that made me really understand how much I mean to her and how well she really knows me.

This poem originally was published in Poems on Life - Family Poems

For My Mother, My Friend
I donít think I ever told you,
how much I appreciate the things you do.

You have been there when I cried,
and always known when Iíve lied.
You taught me how to read and sing,
and punished me when I did the wrong thing.

You were there to tell me goodnight,
and always knew how to make things all right.

I look up to you, Mom,
and I love you very much.
I donít know what it would be like
without your loving touch.

You will always come first in my heart,
no matter how far we are apart.

Mom, I have not told you,
I donít know where Iíve been.
Youíre not only just my mother,
youíre forever my best friend.

Happy Mothers Day

    I loved this poem because my mother is not just my mother, she is my very best friend I have ever had. It wasn't always that way of course but as I grew older I realized how very smart and wonderful she is. She is the most loving and giving person I've ever known, although she doesn't think so. I know there is a place in heaven for her when that day comes to go home to daddy and the Lord.

    I think that this poem was really good. I have read many poems today not just on this site, and all though this one didn't make me cry like the others, i still think it was brilliant.
