    Hi Ladies,

    As Mother's day is approaching why don't we share our feeling abt mother, here is one poem i would like to share with u all-

    I know how often took you for granted
    When I was growing up.
    I always assumed you’d be there
    when I needed you…..
    and you always were.

    But I never really thought about what that meant
    Till I got older & began to realize
    How often you time & energy devoted to me.
    So now, for all the times I didn’t say it before,
    Thank you, Mom……..I love you so much!

    Hello! Here's one more poem, dedicated to my mom to continue the chain!

    A Tribute to my mom


    It’s hard to believe that you are entering your seventies soon
    You still seem to me the sweet mother of yore.
    You’ve sweat blood for us, for me and brothers two,
    With father by your side, as a pillar of support, true.

    Even now as I think of the way you’ve toiled
    Balancing your work between office and home,
    My eyes turn wet for the care so perfect.
    At the expense of your health you have worked for our best,
    Caring not for rest, duty always first.

    And now that you are old, your children well-settled,
    Each leading their own lives, in the way they think is best,
    It makes us proud to feel that shattered dreams of yours
    You’ve never thrust on us.

    Bad times you’ve tided, with all the courage in the world
    You’ve always been for us, a friend, philosopher and guide.
    Your zest for learning things, with age being no bar,
    Has always inspired us, me and brothers too.

    And now at the zenith of your life, you are the guiding light of our life
    Basking in the warmth of your love, we’ll walk the path you have laid
    Remembering one thing in our minds-
    “How famous to become, we will think not of that,
    How best we make of life, is what will matter most.”

    Hi!

    That was an excellent poem Malathi, a befitting tribute to your mother! Those were lovely verses Cheer!!

    How i wish i could write too!! Our mother's mean the world to all of us. Why only mother's, our parents mean the world to us. To me, my mother is my ideal woman. She has been a wonderful mom to me & my sister & if i can be half as good as her, as a mother, i'll be happy & contented.
    Just want to take this oppurtunity to say a 'big thank you' to her for everything which words cannot describe!!

    Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there!!

    Ragini.

    Dear Cheer,

    On the ocassion of Mother's day, it is a good thread that you have started. Here is a song which I would like to share with you all.

    Mother of Mine

    Mother of mine
    You gave to me
    All of my life
    To do as I please
    I owe everything
    that I have to you
    Mother, sweet mother of mine

    Mother of mine
    You gave me happiness
    much more than what I can say
    I pray to Lord that he may bless you
    every night and every day
    Mother, sweet mother of mine

    Regards,

    TDU

    Malathy,

    You touched my heart - your tribute reflected my feelings for my mother. Thank you especially for the following lines

    Bad times you’ve tided, with all the courage in the world
    You’ve always been for us, a friend, philosopher and guide.
    Your zest for learning things, with age being no bar,
    Has always inspired us, me and brothers too.

    And now at the zenith of your life, you are the guiding light of our life
    Basking in the warmth of your love, we’ll walk the path you have laid

    Cheer,

    Thanks for starting this thread and the lovely links also.

    Here is one story i would like to share with u all i think it's from Chicker soup for the soul-

    Many many years ago, there was a little girl who was
    very unhappy about her look and the mother found out
    why her little girl was so unhappy, every year since
    then, the little girl received flowers on her
    birthday,she thought it was sent by her secret
    admirer. and she became very happy and confident
    about herself.

    Many years later, the mother passed away, and the
    girl no longer received any flowers for her birthday. She
    then realised that those flowers were sent by her
    beloved mother, however she will never have any
    chance to thank her mother for her love.


    Don't wait until it is too late
