For My Mother


For you Mom,

On this special day,

That celebrates Mother’s on a late spring day in May.

To let you know,

With each and every day,

You’ve touched my life somehow, or in some way.

And yes we’ve had our share of up’s and down’s; some major blows,

That’s part of life, that’s how the story goes,

Even the ocean tides have their highs and lows.

High notes or low notes however it’s all the same,

For the encouragement, magic and adventure you gave me,

Have always remained.

Growing up you were many things to me,

A magician, teacher, storyteller, warrior, explorer, role model – to name a few,

And to me, the prettiest mom in the world – yes, even now that holds true.

Now that I am older with a daughter of my own,

There is something familiar about the stories that are told.

You see, those special times, fun memories and adventures of years past,

They have never been lost or forgotten, but shared and will forever last.

We have been through so much together,

Still so much to look forward to,

Thank you for all that you’ve done, and continue to do.

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom – I love you ❤

  1. Aww, how lovely! I wish I could have written poetry for my mother when she was alive, she deserved it. And other than growing flowers or baking a cake for her, what more of a personal thank you can you create?! I hope she loved it. 🙂

    • Thank you so much! Sorry to hear about your mum passing away. A poem is nice, yes, but so is any form of love and care on that day or any other really. She knew I am sure of it! Plus flowers and a homemade CAKE will do just the trick year after year, that sounds great to me too! =) And to your question, yes my mom loved it ….thankfully yeah!
