I wrote this poem to my mother in Spanish...and decided to translate it...because most of you guys only know English and didn't really wanna leave you guys hanging...though I still think that my Spanish version has a stronger feel to it...but well I hope you guys enjoy it...

I write to you
kind woman
to you who
carried me in your womb
for nine months
and in those nine months
you fed me
you spoke to me
me sang to me
and you loved me
our anticipation grew
day after day
both of us were very anxious
we couldn’t wait to finally
meet each other face to face
but I was more anxious to see
what a beautiful mother
God has gifted me with
I also waited for you
to carry me in those arms
that have waited so long
for me
finally the day had come
we were finally together
mother and child
and it was in that instant
that I met you
my first love
then you brought me to our home
and our relationship kept on growing
you continued to feed me
when I was hungry
you gave me the strength
to take my first steps
so that I could follow you
no matter where you went
it was because of you that
I learned how to speak
so that I could express with words
how much I loved you
and how much I would continue
to love you
I received a lot care from you
whenever I was sick
and I would feel comfortable
knowing that you would always
be by my side
the years went by
and it was time for me
to attend school
but just the thought
of us separating
brought us great sadness
but we got used to it
we had to take the time
to miss each other and
then see each other again
with great joy
you supported me
throughout school
I would learn everything that
the teachers taught me and
I would come home
and show you how much
I had learned so that
you could realize that
I was becoming a big boy
the years continued to pass us by
I started to enter into that state
of rebellion and being a troublemaker
despite all of my wrongs
in your eyes you continued to see me
as that beautiful boy that
you held in your amrs
and you continued to
give me your unconditional love
and time kept going
I’m a man now,
we’ve had our good and bad moments
but we’re still together
I wanna take this time to
ask you for forgiveness
forgive me for not telling you
how much I truly love you
this should be something
I should never forget to do
forgive me for ever treating you wrong
because you never deserved any of it
forgive me for being ungrateful
for all the things you have done for me
and for all the things
you continue to do for me
and I also wanna thank you
for carrying me in your womb
for giving me life
for giving me that
strong maternal love that
lies deep within your heart
for offering me your protection
whenever I was afraid
for the support and strength that
you have given me so that
I could face life’s obstacles
praise the Lord for blessing me
with a mother like you
I hope to have you for
many more years so that
I could show you that our love
is as strong as that first day we met
and bless you
for you are
the most beautiful woman if my life
who I have the greatest honor
call “mother”
I adore you and love you
and I will continue to do so
now and forever

Jony, you are fortunate to have your mother still alive. My mother whom I loved very much and who was the rock of my life died on 31st May 1977 at the early age of 58. There are many others whose mothers will have left them for various reasons with a great sense of loss which can last a whole lifetime. Somehow you learn to manage the new situation without your mother. I know that the dynamics in my family changed for the worst when my mother died. She was the centre round which we all revolved. Some of us have had to cope with a new person replacing our mothers and of course being no match for our mothers. In my case, six months after my mother died and shortly after she and my father got married, this other woman made it plain to me (when I was still grieving!) that she had married my father - not the family! Well, that was in the spring of 1978 and it is something you never forget!

Yes mothers are the center of every family...they are the rock which keeps the family together...& they are the are the ones who warm warm us with their love...i know that when the day comes...it will be devastating for me...cuz she is the closest person in my life...i do consider myself very fortunate becuz my mom lost both of her parents at the ate of 12...so she's always made it really clear that we're very lucky...

That must have been terrible for your mum when she found herself an orphan at such a young age!! I hope that if your mum dies before your dad he doesn't ask his second wife to marry him six weeks after his first wife died - which is what my father did!!

No my dad has made it clear that when & if he should lose my mom before he dies...he will never re-marry...becuz he is convinced that my mom is & will always be his one & only soulmate...& that's a trait that i feel i have inherited from my dad...when i find someone i truly love a guy...i love him w/every fiber of my being...mind body & soul...but should he choose to reconsider & does re-marry...i wouldn't hold it against him...becuz he deserves to be happy...that other woman will never replace my mom...but she would deserve a chance to be part of our family becuz of the happiness that she would bring into my dad's life...

Thank You Jony for your poem to your Mother. I think that what you said can resonate for most of us and if we are as thoughtful as you express ourselves similarly to our Mothers too. Patrick
