Mandy's Poem For Mother

What is a mam?
by Mandy Howe (Zimbabwe)

I love you mam with all my heart

Throughout my life you've played a big part

Whenever I've turned you've always been there

To give me your love, to show that you care.


If I've made mistakes, you have never complained

Your love is un-conditional, it has always remained

Nothing is ever a problem to you

Your kindness and strength always shines through


As I grew up and found someone to love

You put your faith in me just like I knew you would

The day that I married was the proudest of my life

To have my mam and dad see me become Ian's wife


When I got married I bet you thought, that's it she had gone

But what happened that day was you gained a new ?son?.

Mam we both love you for your kind caring ways.

You brighten our lives on the darkest days


Thank you mam for just being you

For guiding us and helping us through

You've always been there through trouble and strife

You've picked up the pieces and shaped my life


Mother's day is for special people like you

But you deserve every day to be special the whole year through

Happy mother's day from your daughter and 'son'

Thank you so much just for being our mum.



Thank you so much and God bless you, Mandy, for sharing with us your lovely poem for mother.

I'm sure your mom must be real proud to receive this touching poem and know that she is loved and have been a great inspiration to her daughter and son-in-law.
