Let Me Say “I Love You” Through This Rhyme

For the first nine months I stayed inside you.

You didn’t mind the pain that you felt as I grew.

Until the day came as the world welcomed me anew,

Your tears dropped as you started a break through.


A lot of sacrifices you did as I started to live,

Assisting me in a lot of things since the day I was conceived.

You have a lot of plans for your child to achieve.

You did your best to provide me the best of life’s sieve.


You are my first teacher, who taught me to read,

I repeated each syllable as you patiently lead.

You are the first who taught me to create an art bead.

Your instruction about discipline, you guided me to heed.


Whenever I came home from school with a star,

You will excitedly greet me even from afar.

Whenever I’m sad because I could not play the guitar,

You will smile and say “Just sing while we are in the car”.


As I grow you taught me a lot of things about modesty,

And how to be a woman of beauty and of femininity;

You said in order for me to achieve life’s tranquility,

I need to stay grounded in God’s command for serenity.


This life won’t be happier without you being my mother.

We have a lot of things in common from one unto the other.

From being a fond of stories to being a chocolate lover,

up to checking out restaurants from one to another.


I can go over the list of our bonding time,

Still I will end up with as smile as to a chime.

For your love and kindness is truly my treasure sublime.

So let me say ‘thank you’ and ‘I love you’ through this little rhyme.

    You sound like you have a good relationship with your mother. That is beautiful to see. Not many have that relationship any more. Thanks for sharing this heartwarming poem. 😀

      Thank you so much for taking some time to post a comment. Yes, I do have a good relationship with my mother. She is my best friend. She gives wise counsel from doing the household chores to my dating life. I am grateful to God that He gave me a mother like her.
