My Mother


My Mother

Gayla Elaine Collier



My mother is of the Earth

Her hair is the color of the winter forest

Her skin is the color of sand

Her eyes are like the colorful ocean

She is a jewel


My mother is of the Lord

She is kind, sweet, and nurturing

Her heart is stronger than oak

Her hands as soft as rabbits fur

She is an angel


My mother is of beauty

She has a voice that inspires the world

She has a heart that is more precious than gold

She has a smile that enriches lives

She is a rose


My mother is the best person I have ever known

Her soul is trusting

Her spirit is loving

Her heart is compassionate

She is a poem


My mother is of righteousness

She lives a blossom of winter

She breathes a song of sweetness

Her heart beats in the choir of angels

She is God’s child.

Wow, that was very nice of you to those nice things of your mother. Did you let her read this poem? I wish I could make a poem for my mother.



i wrote it about a month ago while she was sleeping in the hospital and yes i read it to her and she told me to try and publish it, I shared it at her memorial as well. Thanks for the comment

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
