Mother's Day

Ready to celebrate another Mother's Day,
Thinking of mothers close and mother's far away,
A single second to send a thought,
Precious time with you that can't be bought.

Will flowers do, a nice big bouquet?
You hate lilies, I wont forget,
Maybe some chocolates, or a bottle of wine,
To show I love you, mum of mine.

A new book to read or film to see,
Wrapped up in paper to you from me,
A framed photograph or even this verse,
Anything to show you what you deserve.

For every time I need you, I know you're there,
To console me, to calm me, to show you care,
An ear to listen when I need to talk,
To hold me up when I can't walk.

You make me laugh when I don't feel like smiling,
When I need advice it's your number I'm dialing,
You tell me straight when I'm over reacting,
And come up with something clever that is distracting.

To make me see clear that things aren't always so bad,
You make me smile when I am feeling sad,
So as I look at gifts and cards to buy,
I take a breath and let out a sigh.

I stand in silence; my head containing only one thought,
And that's that a gift good enough cannot be bought,
No flowers, or chocolates can begin to say,
I love you Mum, Happy Mother's Day.
