A Candle Lighter Award For My Mom

I am happy to receive this award and it was already a week ago from a wonderful person name Eric whom I just met here via WordPress.  I have not seen him yet in person but I can read him through his blog.  You can check him out by paying him a visit and I bet you’d love this man too, as much as I do with his sincere passion to share his thoughts with you and me, with us and all over the world.

Thank you so much Eric, you’re wonderful!

Here is one of his many masterpieces that I thought I would love to share with you by honoring him in nominating me this award:

And today, January 30 is my Mom’s Birthday…  She already passed away 10 years ago and so I would like to dedicate this Candle Lighter Award to my Mom.

My Mom, my little brother and little sister and me who looked so dolly with my orange dress 🙂

 Remembering My Mom

Every time I feel gloomy or hurt
I come to your side for comfort
You’re the mom I know since birth
The person who’d remain my mirth…

You’re the woman who knows me better
You’d understand my needs and want
That even though how knotty those were
You’d come to save me from any avalanche,
You wouldn’t mind this, nothing else matter
For you would want me safe from the errant

You’re always available for me
No matter how busy you may be
How you’d wish, all the answers you’d give
And all the things I seek in life, I’d receive

You’re not only a mom but a best friend
You’d honestly tell me all my mistakes
Because you wouldn’t stand me to rend
But you’d stay with me ’til my heart rakes

Yes there were times we would fight
Obviously with our generation gaps, it’s quite
But you’re cool you’d never doubt my insight
You’d let our conflict flow and bring them to a light

We wouldn’t always agree in any thing
And may have some misunderstanding
I would show you my tantrum, all of my whining,
My bad behavior and all of my misgiving
Yet you would never tolerate them by ignoring
Rather you’d choose to tame me with fair scolding
Sure, you’d get furious or peeve from my complaining
But still your heart would be quick in forgiving

You would always manage to calm down
You’d open your big heart and wide mind
And you’d accept the all of me to understand
To make me realize that my life had just begun
For you knew that everything you have done
Were for my wellness when time comes that you’re gone…

Everything that you have taught me
Ever since when I was little were all true
Today, that I am a Mom myself, I agree
For I have understood them all out through
Your love is unconditional and eternally…


When I feel happy and worry-free
As I always am
Still you are always around,
And here you would come…
We would share all the joys all year round
And no matter how far you are
Or near or just around,
You would make me feel your presence
You would reach out to me
You would make me feel the essence
Of your loving touch, so warm and profound
That I would hear my heart pound heavenly!

Oh, we would truly feel blessed and blissful
We would celebrate together and be fruitful…

And you would wish the whole world to know
That I’m your daughter, so proud to have me
And you are my mother, who’d support me grow
To be smart and strong…I really am so happy!
You never gave up on me, so I’d keep my glow,
Oh, my mother… My life I owe you… I thank thee…

I love you Mom…

Abeille Amore

This Candle Lighter Award is for you Mom… I love you!

    What juicy poems! Thank you for sharing and baring your heart. Very precious.

  15. This was so beautiful and touching, and I am sure your mother upon reading this would smile and shed a tear, and I wouldn’t be surprised if indeed she already has looked down to see your tribute to her. And yes, she is still near to you and I have no doubt she is so proud of you still. How lovely, and what a blessing to have read these words to your mom from your heart. My mom has been gone for 10 years too, so I know what you are feeling and how badly it hurts to miss her….my sympathies and thoughts are with you. Thanks so much for sharing this with us.
    Love, peace, and blessings,

    I lost my mother almost 15 years ago…pieces like this are very special. Remember to appreciate those who impact your life while they are living…it makes memories of them so much more poignant once you no longer have them beside you…physically.
