Actions speaks louder than words but words from the heart are meaningful and forever. Saipan Tribune collected the following poems from young students on Saipan. (Bea Cabrera)

Mother’s Day Love

Special to the Saipan Tribune

Love is not what you think, but what you see and feel.
Love is not a victory just to have someone next to you.
One needs a mother’s touch before one can feel happiness.
A child needs a mother’s gentle voice, a gentle hand, before they know who they are.
A mother needs a child before she knows who she is.

My mother is a moon flower in a forest of gray and black.
My mother is the one tree that survived the fire.
I am the flower surrounded by fire.
My mother stays and does not flee.
My mother chases away my worries.
She helps me feel happiness and joy.

Mom, you told me “Please,” “Thank You” and “Welcome” are the three important words in English.
I just want to say PLEASE take a break from what you are doing because you have done so much already.
THANK YOU for caring for me even though I was crying. Even when I was happy you were there next to me.
You have always WELCOMED me with you warm heart.
I love you Mom.

Thank You, Mama

Special to the Saipan Tribune

I remember the time when you held my arms
Guiding me as I take my first walk
You smiled and encouraged me
And I did what you told me so

You carried me for nine months
And you missed a ton of stuff as you watched me grow
Your old clothes couldn’t fit you anymore
And you miss hanging out with your friends

I couldn’t remember when you gave birth to me
But father have always say you had a smile on your face
You took care of me and gave me hope
I’m myself today because of you

As I grew up
We fought a lot
Once I told you that I hated you
I regretted it as soon as I slammed the door

I heard you cry from closed door
But I swallowed my pride and left you there alone

I was at my lowest when you hugged me
Telling me everything’s going to be fine
I cried more and I told you I didn’t mean anything that I’ve said
You smiled and kissed me on my cheek

I’ve never told you this before
But I want to tell you that I love you
Happy Mother’s Day
And thank you, Mama

My Best Friend

Special to the Saipan Tribune

She’s the one who makes me me!
Without her I’m not whole.
She makes the rainiest days into the brightest days.
She cares for me and loves me like the kind of love you need.
She is my mom. She is my best friend.
I love you Mom.
