Happy Mother’s Day

This poem is dedicated to all those wonderful mother’s this is a poem by Maya Angelou Please share it

It is true

I was created in you

It also true

That you were created for me

I owned your voice

It was shaped and tuned to soothe me

Your arms were molded

Into a cradle to hold me , to rock me

The scented of your body was the air

Performed for me to breathe


During those early , dearest day

I did not dream that u had

A large life which included me

For I had a life

Which was only you

Time passed steadily and drew us apart

I was unwilling

I feared if I let u go

You would leave me eternally

You smiled at my fears, saying

I could not stay in your lap forever

That one day you would have to stand

And where would I be ?

You smiled again

I did not

Without warning you left me

But u return immediately

You left again and returned

I admit quickly

But relief did not rest with me easily

You left again , but again return

Each time you reentered my world

You brought assurance

Slowly I gain confidence

You thought you know me

But I did know you

You thought you were watching me

But I did hold you securely in my sight

Recording every moment

Memorizing your smiles, tracing your frowns

In your absences

I rehearsed you

the way you had of singing

On a breeze

While a song lay

At the root of your song

The way you posed your head

So that the light could caress your face

When you put your fingers on my hand

And your Hands On my arms

I was blessed with a sense of health

Of strength and very good fortune

You were always

The heart of happiness to me

Bringing nougats of glee

Sweets of open laughter

I loved you even during the years

When you knew nothing

And I knew everything, I love u still

Condescendingly of course

From my high perch

of teenage wisdom

I spoke sharply of you , often

Because you were slow to understand

I grew older and

Was stunned to find

How much knowledge you had gleaned

And so quickly

Mother I have learned enough now

To know I have learned nearly nothing

One this day

When mother’s are being honored

Let me thank you

That my selfishness, ignorance and mockery

Did not bring you to

Discard me like a broken doll

Which had lost its favor

I thank you that

You still find something in me

To cherish , to admire and to love

I thank you , Mother

I love you
