You carried me before I could walk
You spoke for me before I could talk
You were the one who always saved the day
You saw my needs before your own
Measured my heights as I'd grown
You guided me 'till I could find my own way

Don't even want to think about
If I'd had to do without
The gifts of love and time you gave to me
I've stored them all away
For me to use again someday
When I was born, I came with wings to fly
And you gave me the sky

LostBoy - A beautiful piece.
Glad she gave you your wings.
Mom's are like that ... yeah, they are.

I agree with everyone else on the beauty of your poem. There is no better gift to recieve than the love of a mother.

Lost boy, this is a wonderful and powerful poem. Any mother would be honored to have words like that spoken or written for her. I love the rhyme scheme you used in this, it works quite well.

Oh, I almost forgot...welcome to passions
