My Treasure - For Mom

I look back on these years
   To see how far I've come and grown,
I take a trip down memory lane,
   And what I see has shown .

That every step I've taken,
   You have been there by my side
From infancy to adulthood,
   We've stood the test of time.

You cradled me and nurtured me,
   Through all these many years;
You held me and did comfort me,
   Through happiness and tears.

You'd pick me up when I would fall,
   You'd dust me off and then,
Encourage me to get back on
   That horse and ride again.

Your constant care and loving,
   And your warm inviting heart,
Has always been a treasure that
   I knew would n'er depart.

If I could be "just half" the person
   You have been to me
Then you have taught me well dear mom,
   For in my heart I see

A woman whose most gentle soul,
   Embraces me each day
A woman whom I dearly love,
   Much more than words can say.  

/Kit McCallum

Kit,
This one is truly wondrous. I think I will send this to my mom, if you don't mind...

I enjoyed the expressions that you have presented here... particularly these 8 lines

Your constant care and loving,
   And your warm inviting heart,
Has always been a treasure that
   I knew would n'er depart.

If I could be "just half" the person
   You have been to me
Then you have tought me well dear mom,
   For in my heart I see

Regards,
Sudhir

 Life is like a painting,
That in an art gallery is left hanging,
Though many come just to look at it,
A very few actually come to enjoy it.

Kit~
I think your mom will say that she knows she has a 'treasure' in you too !
Sweet, sweet sentiment.

I think we all take our mums for granted one in a while and is very nice to let yours know you care. And with this beautiful poem i'm sure you'll do just that

 We are all poets, its just some people dont know it yet.
