    dotsto my motherdots

    You've always been there...
    through my blackest moods
    and deepest depressions
    you've been there, my angel
    of understanding.

    You've always been there...
    when sharing my hopes for a future,
    my sprite of compassion,
    conforting me softly as I cried,
    watching my dreams collapse around me.

    You've always been there...
    urging me forward, catching me
    when I fall, pushing
    me to go for something better,
    my coach of my life.

    You've always been there...
    battling past the raging storm to
    comfort my quivering center, my essence
    of love, holding me tight, giving me
    the hug I may not have wanted, but needed.

    You've always been there...
    you've given me life and taught me to
    love, but I gave you grief and heartache,
    my mother, I just want you to know...
    just how much you mean to me.

      This poem is so beautiful, and it made me want to get up and go hug my own mother. You write well, and express your feelings towards her very nicely. I wish I could write like that.

      I love this poem so much..I love my momma so much!LOVe is in the air! I think I am going to post the poem I just wrote for the women in my life,recently...My momma,my daughters and sisters and aunts have been such a source of strength and helping me shape a positive and healthy image for myself..because I have so sabotaged myself at times but I always new what I needed to do because of them. I hope my daughters can say the same..and maybe one day will potentially write or dedicate a similar poem to me. I tell you as a mother that that is all us mommas want, A poem telling us you love us and know how much we love you.

      I too wish that my mother was a part of my life...though it didn't make me feel good reading this...it affected me, and i guess reaching someone is the object of the poetry, for me anyway.

    I'm glad you appreciate your mother, many your age don't and I wish you both good times together.

    It's true you don't know what you have til it's gone.

      Wow Jess, you almost made me cry with this one. I loved the fact of it being a positive poem about love because I don't see that o often. I only wish I could say the same for my mother hah.

      Well written and well put. Your mother must of suffered a lot and yet she still worried about you mostly and you didn't aknwoledge it that much did ya?

    I wish I could remember my own mother. She is still alive but when I was small she left to become an artist and I lost my memory somehow when I was 6 and didn't remember her when she came back. You are really lucky.

      I loved this poem. It touched my heart. Many have those feelings but dont take the time to say the words to thier mothers. You put it down in words she could read. Great work. Smiles.

      Pure love... the love between mother and daughter. This is a beautiful write that I know your mom would appreciate reading.. I have no doubt. It's good to have someone in life to coach you, to urge you in being all you can be. You've brought out your love for her in a very special way here. I enjoyed reading this.
    It needs a little fixing here and there.. but the write itself is a very good one. Heartfelt...and those are the best kind.

      You managed, somehow, to write a poem about your mother and not commit one of the two indescressions that everyone does; you didn't write a completely spiteful and resenting poem, and you didn't write a horribly mushy poem, either. I think you did a wonderful job on this. I've never been close to my parents, but I can understand entirely how much a mother's love can really ease you through some hard times.
    Anyway, great job

      I don't really see that you say how you feel about her. I understand and relate because my mother does alot for me aswell, but you don't say that you appreciate her or that you hate her. You say what shes done and some reasons for how you feel but not the words them self. It was good really but it seems unfinished.
    It was good but I would just like to see it finished, anways, keep it up.

      This was such a great poem. It made me cry...and thankful for all my own mother does for me...I hope you read this poem to her...Im sure she would really love and appreciate it too. I'm glad to finally see some positive writings about one's parent. It gets boring just reading people b*tch about their parents when you should think about what they have done for you and how much you take them for granted sometimes. I really liked this piece...it warmed my heart. Keep up the writing!

      Jess, you almost made me cry. I am speechless, well, kinda. I know I liked it very much. There was so much feeling, you could tell it came straight from the heart. There is a spelling error, it didn't take from the over all effect though. I wish I could write something so strong.

    Wow, I mean, this is way good. I am deffinately adding it to my favorites, I think this is one of the better ones that I have read. True meaning, true feeling, man, this was awesome. I'm not saying all this to make you blush either.

    You gave me goosebumps, two thumbs way up for you. No matter what we say about our mothers, they are always there for us, (in most cases) I really admire you for writing this, are you going to show your mom? It would be a nice present. She would cry..Tears of joy..Wow.

    A now emotional Bonnie. I <3 you, Jess!

I LOVE YOU MAN!!! .....What else to say....hmmmm...rubber duckys are nice. Don't you just hate french sometimes? I have two projects due tomorrow and niether one is done. Ok I think i'm done now

      This is just an honest heartfelt poem! what a wonderful tribute to your Mother. It is far nicer than anything i have ever read in the most expensive of greeting cards, and I know your Mom will treasure it forever.

    You know, life and love are so precious, and some people never learn to express their feelings openly, and yet so often people separate, go their own ways, or death intervenes unexpectedly, and there are those wonderful simple things left unsaid forever. It is so important to tell loved ones how you feel, each and everyday-and you Jess, so young haved learned that , while others decades older may never learn, -and never know the power and peace in those words.
    I think this is just superb.

      This is really good, Jess. Did you let your mom read this? If not, I advice to do so. She needs to know what you feel about her.
    Anyway, it's good, one of your better pieces.
    Well that's pretty much all I've gots to say.

      It is true what they say about Mothers. That the love and diginty that they posess can manifest itself in their children.

    You did a very good job on this poem. Its just too bad I didn't see this one earlier.

      Lucky mother to have this written for her. I can relate to this because I had one child who was difficult to reach at times, but now we are so close. I was never willing to give up. Few mothers are. Lucky you to have this one.
