It’s mothers day on 15th March, and I have been giving much thought to the way my own mother has been such an inspiration to me over the years. So much of who I am and what I do, has been guided by my lovely, caring mum. The way I prepare my Sunday roast; the way I clean my house! The way I try to always look for the good in a situation, and the way I appreciate life, family and friendships. These thoughts have inspired me to write a poem which I would like to share with you:-
Just how can I possibly thank you
for all that you’ve done, or you’ve said
Always there to support, guide and nurse me
always fed with a cosy warm bed.
Your words of encouragement taught me
to value life’s merit and worth
To appreciate all that’s around me
and not waste any time here on earth.
I am focussed and nourished with being
I enthuse every breath that I draw
And this mother’s day I will be thinking
of each memory you’ve brought me, for sure.
If I sum up the way that I feel now
that I’m older and wiser, and know,
I am happy, contented and grounded,
‘cos my mum is the reason I grow.
Why not give the gift of poetry this coming Mother’s Day?
I have two charming collections for you to choose from:-
Poetry Giving is a heart warming collection of rhymes about every day things. Each sale of this book raises funds for the wonderful Midlands Air Ambulance Charity.
Knickerbocker Glory is a fusion of poetry designed to stir the senses; full of life’s emotions and experiences.
Thanks to all the world’s wonderful mothers, for all that you do.
