A Poem for my Mama on Mother’s Day

Yesterday was a special day for celebrating remarkable moms around the world. Many of us are blessed with a wonderful mother and I am glad I have one. 


I have been away from my MAMA for almost six years since we migrated here in Oman. Still, there were times I  miss her scent, her touch, and her voice. Even when I am adult I still long for her care and love considering that she still extend her hands when I already have a family of my own. For her, I am still her little bald girl whom she raise to become humble and always grateful. 

Oh, how I wish I can be in Philippines to throw a special family dinner for my mama and offer her flowers, fragrances, and jewelries.. just to show how much I love her.

And in my own personal appreciation I have reposted here a poem I have written a couple years ago for my dearest Mama Ofelia.

[M]y [A]dorable [M]other’s [A]ffection

Before I was a Mom
I never thought of buying toys or singing a lullaby.
I didn’t worry whether or not my hands are dirty and the house is safe and clean.
But you were there to give me Support.

Before I was a Mom
I never thought about immunizations, changing diapers, making meals, and feeding a hungry baby.
I always had a complete sense of sanity and control of my mind and self.
But you were there to give me Awareness.

Before I was a Mom
I never thought of holding a sick and screaming child so that doctor could do tests or give shots.
I never thought of looking into teary eyes and made my heart break into a million pieces.
I never thought of crying if I couldn’t stop the hurt.
But you were there to give me Comfort.

Before I was a Mom
I never thought of having an intense feeling of happiness over a simple grim or chuckle.
I never thought of holding a sleeping baby just because I didn’t want to put her down.
I never thought of staying up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.
I never thought of getting up in the middle of the night to make sure all was okay.
But you were there to give me Perseverance.

Before I was a Mom
I didn’t know the mutual feeling and special bond between a mother and her child.
I didn’t know that something so small could affect my life so much and made me feel so important and happy.
I never knew that I could love someone so much. I never knew I would love being a Mom.
But you were there to give me Joy.

But, when I became a Mom
I had known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache, the wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mother and a Woman.
I just only knew that I was capable of feeling so much,
because of your Care and Affection.

And i really like this saying -?  “Mothers hold their children’s hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.”
