Dear Mommy

Dear Mommy,

I love you…

Because:

You are always giving me special things to play with

From you, I am always learning new words to say with

When I get mad, you calm me down

You teach me to smile and not wear a frown

 

Picking me up when I fall

When you have to be away, you always call

Holding my hand to cross the street

Buckling me tightly into my seat

 

Helping me learn about being a boy

Watching me and not giving me every toy

Standing beside me and showing me the way

To be honest and prevail through each day

 

Making sure that I am on time

Laughing at my silly rhymes

Inviting my friends to come and play

Putting my leftover playthings away

 

Smiling with pride and love in your heart

When you see me from afar

Sharing great childhood stories with me

About you and Daddy’s family

 

Putting out paper and crayons and letting me draw

Making a fruity drink with a squiggly straw

Walking and running with me in the park

Teaching me not to be afraid of the dark

 

Looking for the perfect outfit

And the jacket and hat to go with it

Getting me lessons to learn everything

Knowing I’ll grow up to be amazing

 

I forgot my lunch and you brought it right on time

In my piggy bank, you sneak in many dimes

Packing me a snack, hide it in my back pack

Add a love note that you’ll be coming right back

 

 

You cheer me up when I’m feeling bluesy

Bring me back to life when I get to feeling whoosy

Make a hot breakfast on a cold winter day

Cuz, you know I want to go out and play

 

Warming me with a hug, kiss and a smile

Letting me play longer, for a little while

Washing the stains out of my clothes

Wiping my face and my runny nose

 

Rubbing away the hurt and healing my sprain

Kissing my cheek and nourishing my brain

Serving me what is good to eat

Making sure I wear nice shoes on my feet

 

Sharing good advice and honoring my Dad

Never letting me see when you get sad

Telling me you love me even when I’m bad

Not get mad when I broke something you had

 

Only remembering what’s good about me

Tell me funny things I said, when I was three

Giving me a nudge to do a nice thing

Decorating cookies with me while we sing

 

Turning up the music to dance really wild

Never making me feel like you weren’t a child

Teaching me about honor, goodness and faith

Loving others, working hard and how to pray

 

Surprising me sometimes with a special treat

Telling me that you think I’m really neat

Hanging up my pics and drawings on the wall

Showing me how I am really getting tall

 

Lending me a hand when I can’t reach

When I have an accident, you don’t preach

Showing me how to create, share and explore

Reminding me that there’s always something more

 

Drying my eyes when they cry

Squeezing me gently with a mother’s sigh

Holding me and reading to me at night

Wait ‘til I’m snoozing, before turning out the light

 

 

Scaring away the boogie bear

Clearing out the closet so he can’t be in there

Finding good and beauty in everyone

Enjoying long hours with me in the sun

 

Showing me how to respect all livings things

How to find my own purpose, the power that I bring

Helping me be strong and embrace what’s pure and fine

And find a loving partner in good time

 

Explaining to me about the mysteries of life

Giving me your perspective and let me decide

Reminding me of my inner light

Helping me make it shine so bright

 

Stealing a kiss from my rosy cheek

Late at night taking another peek while I sleep

Just making sure that I’m okay

Waiting for me to wake for another day

 

Supporting me to become a renaissance man

To follow my path and remember the Divine Plan

Letting me be the man that I become

And not being disappointed, not even some

 

Giving me courage to tackle any task

Reminding me that there is a proper way to ask

Letting me have a candy, when you’re in the mood

Always cooking up some really good food

 

Eternally knowing how to fix or mend away

What was broken, sad or gone astray

Oh Mommy, what would I do without you

To me, You’re my world, It’s true!

 

-M. Jacobs

I like the truth to this poem and how you described all the little event in a day that a parent does. I think it is well written and very heart warming.

Thanks, so much. I wrote this inspired by my own son- in the purest experience of being a parent. There is no love like the one between the parent and a child.

Thanks, I love him like nothing else. I hope my hubby isn't too jealous of our unique bond. I do think there is some sort of soul contract between myself and my son to be closer to one another. However, the 3 of us have a great time together, most always!

An awesome poem. I find it very creative how you show appreciation for a mother from your sons perspective. Being a son myself, I must admit, you hit the nail right on the head. Great job.

Many thanks, I appreciate your input. The idea for the poem came when I received a note from my son, written by his teacher.

Thanks, for your support. You know that poem was initiated by a short note brought home by my son from school.

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet.
