For a long time
I thought that Mother’s Day
could only be some other’s day
but I was wrong:
I know it’s yours and mine
Every other day
goes by so ordinarily
but this one should be
venerated, and expressed in rhyme
You left me with
so many gifts, you see
an ease, a grace, a natural beauty
a love bestowed unselfishly
this flame which burns within
The rhythm of my life is poetry
in times of deepest pain, or deepest joy
the golden thread flowing from you to me
the umbilical chorded eternally,
the bond, unbreakable, which still remains.
Happy Mother’s Day 2022
A Poem for My Mother
Please note, I am taking a much-needed break this weekend, so will be unable to respond to comments etc. until Monday.
Thank you for reading!
