Happy Mother's Day!, Poem


Happy Mother's Day!!
On this special Sunday we honor our mothers and those who stepped in as mothers for the work they put into rearing us. A mother's job is one of joy and hardship, worry and celebration, laden with love, unconditional love.

I wrote a chapbook many years ago to honor mothers and daughters. Today I share a poem from that book.

No Matter My Age

No matter my age or places I'll see
There's still a little girl inside of me.

I remember the warmth and the love you have shown.
I know in my heart I am never alone.

'Cause no matter my age or places I'll see
I'll carry you, Mother, forever with me.

Hi Marsha. Thank you for your kind comment. I love sharing poems, but it takes me awhile to screw up the courage to do it on my blog. Appreciate your support.
