A Mother’s Patience

A Mother’s Patience

A Poem by Herl Rodrin

This poem describes a mother's love. Unlimited.Bottomless. I've written this poem for my awesome mom and for all the wonderful mom out there.




When you were a little and we’re in a toy shop,

You saw a white animal with whiskers and stopped.


You asked me what’s that?

I said that’s a cat.


You said it’s so huggable,

And find it so adorable.


You walked around the shop;

A few minutes again you stopped.


You saw a white animal with whiskers on the face;

You made three little steps to get closer to its place.


Pointing with your fingers you asked, “What’s that?”

I laughed and told you, “oh darling that’s a cat..”


You continued looking and found a big box;

It’s full of yellow animals and you yelled “ducks!”


But you noticed one animal which is so different;

You picked it up and smell its super sweet scent.


Then you ran to me and asked “What’s this?”

I kissed you then answered with bliss.


It’s a cat my love,

Similar to the one on the shelf above.


I tickled you,

And hugged you.


You stared at the cat for a little while,

And gave me your wonderful big smile.


Oh my dear child you’ve been curious about cat

But I won’t ever get tired of telling you it’s a cat.

I love this! It made me laugh and it was fun to read. It was cute, reminded me of my little one. It was also simple, and in it's simplicity, it was genius and very well written. (:
