For My Dear Mother …poem for Mother’s Day

Poem for Mother’s Day May 11, 2014



By Apolinario Villalobos


Just like the rays of the sun that burst forth

To flood the earth with warmth and light

Stringing the world with threads of life

You, with that warm smile and twinkling eyes

Makes me feel like there’s no darkness

And gloomy twilight

That dims the sight.


That radiant face just glow

Thanks to the womb that nurtured you.


You once told me:

“In this world, roads are strewn with rocks and thorns

Clear skies may suddenly turn dark

To let go of torrential downpour

That could wash down your enthusiasm desire

Leaving you, chilling in the mired.


But if you will just set your eyes

Beyond the horizon

Where there are clearer skies

Your hopes won’t go to waste my child

Especially, if you just let God

Be your guide.”


Now I know….I love you mother!
