You may have tangible wealth untold;
Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold;
Richer than I you can never be --
I had a mother who read to me.
I definitely agree with the thought that the author is trying to convey. Having a mother that truly loves you and care for you is the most important treasure anyone can ever have. Sad to say, some of us(I admit that it includes me, but could never be proud of it) would only realize it if we become a parent ourselves. We should never forsake our mother because if not with them, we can never be what we are.
