Ode Poems to Mom

Ode to the Selfless Mom

In the quiet shadows where you move,
Your hands weave warmth into our nights.
Sacrifice worn proudly, your constant groove.

Small hours hold your silent love, proved,
As stars witness the gentle might.
In the quiet shadows where you move,

Dreams you've fed, never once removed
From the cradle’s soft, patient light.
Sacrifice worn proudly, your constant groove.

Your laughter, a soothing balm that soothes,
Echoes, filling silent plights.
In the quiet shadows where you move,

Each day anew, you selflessly choose
Us, before the morning's first sight.
Sacrifice worn proudly, your constant groove.

We grow, the seeds you tend improve,
Nurtured by your spirit's flight.
In the quiet shadows where you move,
Sacrifice worn proudly, your constant groove.

A Nurse While I am Sick

When fever burns, you're by my bed,
Your cool touch quiets the dread.

With a whisper soft as silk,
Gentle hands, your care like milk.

Night extends her shadowed hand,
Yet, by me, steadfast, you stand.

Tea with honey, warmth in sips,
Balm for soul on fevered lips.

Eyes that watch through darkest hours,
Strength in softness, tender powers.

Soothing words, a lullaby,
Under sickly, clouded sky.

Morning comes, you’re still my shield,
With you, all pain is healed.

Each small gesture tells your lore,
Mother’s love, forevermore.

Soup that steams with hope’s own spice,
You heal with every sacrifice.

In whispered tones, you bid me rest,
In your arms, I’m always blessed.

Through your care, I see the light,
Mother’s love makes all things right.

Her courage bright as morning sun.

When fears arise, she stands tall,
Against the wind, she will not fall.

Her laughter chases clouds away.
With her, the darkest nights are fun.
