Mothers are like blooming buds, they spread the fragrance of love, beauty of care and color of happiness around them. They are never sad, passive or pessimistic; they teach you how to look at life with a positive attitude. Mothers sacrifice a lot for their children but they never consider it as their sacrifice, but they take great pleasure in doing so. Have you ever tried to understand a mother's heart? If you listen carefully to a mother, you can hear songs from a heart, which is overwhelmed with joy. What do these songs tell you? It tells you about her child and its cute little gestures. You don't need extravagant gifts to make a mother happy, the very sight of her baby is enough to make her heart sing with joy. Let us listen to some thoughts from mothers, which are expressed as poems. Have a look at them!
"I love you" - Carl Sandburg
I sit here quietly
Watching them while they sleep
And my heart is torn
How my love for them
Grew so strong
That I feel breathless
It sometimes even hurts
Yet I am never tired
Of watching their little faces
As they sleep.
I can see
That they are running
In their dreams
Their legs move
Back and forth...
Are they on a beach?
Or in green grass fields?
So what if when I am tired
They ruin the room again
Are they not the reasons
Which makes me forget every pain
Oh Lord! Tell me
How possibly could I live?
Before I was a mother
I never knew this bliss.
A Baby Is A Miracle
This little tiny baby
Was sent from God above
To fill our hearts with happiness
And touch our lives with love
He must have known
We'd give our all
And always do our best
To give our precious baby love
And be grateful and so blessed
A Baby's Bath
A baby in a tub is a beautiful site to see,
She giggles and she laughs while
you make her clean as can be!
She throws bubbles in your face,
Having oh, so much fun!
A baby in a bath is good times - homespun!
She splashes in the water with such delight,
While you count each precious little finger and toe,
A drop of water drips onto her face,
Causing her to crinkle up that beautiful little nose!
When splash time is over you pick her up,
You wrap her tightly in a towel,
She releases a big hiccup!
You hug her oh so gently,
Pat her down until she's dry,
She smells so fresh, so clean,
It makes you want to cry!
For baby days go by so fast,
She's growing everyday,
Now all you find yourself wanting to do,
Is keep her out of harm's way.
Next thing you know she's all grown up,
She now has a life of her own,
You dig out all the baby pictures and just
hope and pray that you have sown....
Sown good seeds in her heart and mind,
So that as her life moves on she will be able to find...
The happiness, the contentment,
The peace she once knew,
Back when she was a baby in a bath,
At about age 2!
A Message for My Child - Jessica Wesolek
A Message for My Child
I wish that I could show you
all the things that I have seen.
I wish that I could take you
everywhere that I have been.
I wish that I could indicate
the places where I fell,
And keep you, thus, from tripping
on those "rougher" spots as well.
I wish that I could do all this
and save you from the strife.
But I know that I'd be sparing you
the lessons of your life.
And you must learn those lessons
as hard as that may be,
Just know that you will always have
a helping hand from me.
These were some poems written by loving mothers for their dear children. These poems show how a mother loves her child and enjoys each moment spent with him/her.
