Original Poems

This is your day;
I rejoice with you.
Your loving, compassionate heart,
Your wisdom and your depth,
You soothe me when I feel confused,
You make me smile and laugh.

This is your day;
I applaud you.
Unconquerable and strong,
You meet every challenge,
When things go wrong
You sustain me.

This is your day;
I celebrate with you.
You help me strive and dream,
Respond to every plea,
You bear me with you
-I bear you with me.

My Mother.

Your kiss was the cure-
Scuffed knees, grazed elbows and much more,
You made them better.

Later your hug, a chat, worked wonders too,
So here is my warmest embrace to you.
-You know you are loved.

So Many Reasons Why I Love You

How many special reasons for why I love you so?
Perhaps I'd better make a list
Then you'll be sure to know.

I cannot lie
You make great pie
Your cakes are even better,
But that's not why
I'll write this rhyme
And put it in a letter.

I love your smile
I love your hugs
I love the way you laugh.
I love it when you wave to me
As I walk up the path.

'Cos when I'm coming home to you
That's what I love the most
And knowing that I'll see your face
I have to make a toast-
So Happy Mother's Day Mom!

My Friend... My Mom

'I must tell Mom,' I think,
A thousand times a day
And with each thought
You lodge deeper in my heart
Eternally a part
Of my soul.
