Mother's Love
9 May, 2001
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


I was given life by another
You took me in as your own
You guided me endlessly
The only mother I've known

We've spent many years together
You have been like a best friend
Talked me through bad times
Till they were happy again

You've treated me fairly
You were there when I cried
You listened contentedly
And was stern when I lied

You taught me unconditional love
Something that I never had
You told me I was good
When the world made me feel bad

You offered advice
Though I often rebelled
But I really was listening
as youthful independence called

I feel many of my successes
Are due to you
You taught me to follow my dreams
And to them, to be true

I guess underneath...
What I'm trying to say
Is.. Thank-you for being you
And that to me the word mother means you

We'll as reading your poem on Mother's Love really filled my heart with tears. It expresses so much about me and my mom relationship together. I am really very close to my mom more then anyone in the whole, and yes she is also my bestfriend. So I would like to ask your permission, rather I could use your poem to send to my mom, to let her know that every single word in the poem explains the true mother person she really is to me.
