For You Dear Mom

Each passing year reminds us

How precious you are to us

The years grow older day by day

But not for you we pray.

As always you are young at heart

Your frailty does not hamper

Your humor keeps us all, upright

Under your wings we prosper.

Mother you are a precious gem

Rare and special in our hearts

You’ve kept us tied together

Though ‘years’ have kept us apart

Your will power and your goodness

Have made the distances retard

On this happy day, we wish you

A happy Mother’s Day

We together pray and seek

Your blessings everyday.

  1. Its a very well written poem. You have clearly shown no one can ever be as sweet, caring & nice to us as a Mother who not only guides & comforts but also keeps us all together no matter how far we are from each other. Hats off to all Mothers in this world.
