The mother vow

*The mother vow*


On the day you were born

I promised you

To be your mother and your friend,

To be a teacher,  a mentor for you.


I promised to listen,

To remember and smile,

I promised to accept you

For who you are.


With all my love,

And all my heart,

I promised you this

For all the days of my life.





Once upon a time
There was a little girl.
She grew up to be
One of a kind.
Each step of the way
She leaned on her mother.

Time passed and
The girl became a
mother herself.
And her little girl
grew up to be
One of a kind.

That’s how life goes on
With each little girl
and her story.
Each day someone
somewhere says
‘ I love you, mother’.





Like a silk scarf

Life slipped away

Off your shoulders,

And you are no longer here.


You live in memories.

But not in yours.  In mine.

You’re lost

And I can’t find you.


I love you so much.

It’s all I can give you.  My love.

I wish I could wrap a warm scarf

Around your shoulders.
