Poem Title:  Mother

Poem Category:  Love Poems

Poet:  Edgar Albert Guest

Poet Biography: 
Edgar Albert Guest (1881-1959) was born in England but moved to the United States when a child.



Poem: 
Never a sigh for the cares that she bore for me
Never a thought of the joys that flew by;
Her one regret that she couldn't do more for me,
Thoughtless and selfish, her Master was I.

Oh, the long nights that she came at my call to
me!
Oh, the soft touch of her hands on my brow!
Oh, the long years that she gave up her all to
me!
Oh, how I yearn for her gentleness now!

Slave to her baby! Yes, that was the way of
her,
Counting her greatest of services small;
Words cannot tell what this old heart would
say of her,
Mother
