This poem was written by my mother.. for my brother.

A mother has her first child
her greatest pride and joy.
And as God does the picking,
he made my first a boy.

God doesnít do the raising,
he left that job to me.
Although he watched he gave no hint
what kind of man youíd be.

Many times I blamed him
that I had to do it alone.
So I spanked and yelled and scolded,
till soon I found you grown.

But when I thought my job was done
and stepped back to take a look.
I realized I had no pattern
or instructions from any book.

You were tall and gentle with a smiling face
a motherís real pride and joy.
So Iíll let you go with tear in eye,
my son, my man, my boy.

Your mothers conveys her love well.
Being a parent is very difficult, and sometimes they need reassurance that they're doing o.k. I think I'll call my mom after reading this. Thank you for sharing this.

A loving mother, whom I'm sure made no mistakes. She writes and conveys her love so beautifully.
Thanks for sharing it Lucie..
