Mother's day is Everyday

To watch her smile at 91!

Make Mother’s day

Everyday!

As I pray each day

To see just another

Sunrise

I am not waiting

For 2012, the 13th

Day of May.

For some surprise

Giving sincere thanks

To the Most High

God

For the blessings

That he gave me

Am never sad.

Keeping my mother

Safe and sound

Planting her feet

On solid ground

I not waiting for May

To come around

Not having hopes

For just one day

But I’ll keep on

Showing her the Love

In every way

Every day

Through rain

or shine

Come what may

I love you Mother

Don’t change

a thing

The joy to me

Your presence

Brings

Makes Mother’s

day is Everyday

I would not have it

Any other way.

I usually listen

To everything they

Tell me

Oh yes I listened

Very well

I rode shotgun

To the moon and back

I cried

When so many died

During that horrible

Attack

Still pray for those

Fighting in Iraq.

I fell in love

On Valentines Day

St.Patrick comes up

He ran away

Fourth of July came

Took the place by

Storm

One day for my

Mother

Then it’s all gone

Noooooooo!

That will never work

For me.

Am sorry

Don’t want to be

Like everybody.

Go to church every Sunday

Work every Monday

And Tuesday

And Wednesday

And Thursday

They on Friday again.

Mother’s Day

Is every day

Whether the sun is

Shining

Or it’s pouring rain

Don’t care a word

What anyone may say

Trying to tell me

I must wait till May

2012 of another year?

Wait to send her a card

How can that justify

That’s rather sad

I expect my mom

To be here even then

But I have today

With mother don’t need

Someone to tell me when

Don’t have to wait

Till I get my paid

For me

Mother’s day is this day

God have made

As I celebrate my

Mother’s day

Let it be today and for me

It will always be

Everyday!

Love you Mom!

Hello sky9106! Nice to see a well thought piece dedicated to a mother by her own son. That's very admirable I would say. Hope all is well.

I am quite happy that you also like this one, by your own words I can say I know some about your truth and that's exactly what matters the most. I will share this with you. This evening I came out to the computer to write another something in relation to mothers, It stuck to my mind so strongly , I was eager to stat writing , suddenly I heard my sisters dog throwing a fit , went downstairs to make sure all was well, that's around

5 pm. I am only now coming back to the computer . The dog sensed my sister , who was not to be at home till 12 tonight , , but because it's her birthday she came early. The gist of the story sometimes the things you set out to do , is just that , you set out to. But life has other plans , I still have that thought in my head.

Thanks for listening.

Have a blessed evening.

So beautiful, full of appreciation of your mother and the fact you don't need Mother's Day to tell you when to honor her, you honor her every day in love and appreciation. I like that so much about this poem you wrote...well done!

Thank you for sharing.

Thanks Jackie L.

Sorry about your Mom. I always say as long as you are now seeing all what she was feverishly trying to instill in you, as long as it continues with you, believe it or not, she will Guide you.

Always a pleasure having you stopping by.

How is that little girl , your friends daughter?

Blessings and thanks always ..

Very beautiful composition. I lost my mother last year and it is so hard, not a day goes by I don't think of her and miss her. You can never show them enough love and there are so many things I wish I had said. I kept her for years and showed her all the love I could and it still wasn't enough. So may things I would love to say and do now. Never wait.

I very touched, because I know I 'll tell you why and the Most High God is the only witness that I need.

I have this picture of my Mom and myself that I am putting on the bottom front cover of my first published book.( BTW Congratulations )But my follow reasons are exactly that.

Here it is I was just about to place the picture there and I got this alert of a comment pending, from you. Whatever it means it's all good because your memories and assurances of your Mom is quite beautiful.

I have grown to understand too much about Mothers for me not to Honor her each day .

Tears is a great thing especially when they are for the correct reason, they are actually blessings.

Xlibre's , let me know how they treat you.

Blessings and thanks so much for reading.

Hello Sky,

This is such a beautiful poem. My Mom passed on 16 yrs. ago, and sometimes I cry, then recall something funny she said, and smile through my tears. I didn't listen to the song, it's so emotional. My own son graduated from elementary school in 8th grade, they sang that song to the parents. There was not a dry eye in the room! It is so important to tell the ones we love every day, that we love them. Why wait? You never know how long you will have them, and don't ever want them to think we didn't respect them and understand all the sacrifices they made to help us grow. My Mom was my greatest cheerleader, and even now as an older woman, I hear her when I need her, and know she is still with me forever. Very beautiful work!

Thanks "AE". It's with great admiration I read your words because, I am forever learning from the words of those that have walked that plateau . I shall always remember the similarities especially with your own mother hen.

A boy and his pet fowl.

I admire your strength!

I will give her a tighter than usual hug in memory of all those who remembered their mother as a result of this , and allow my sincerity to let her know the reason , it got that little difference. Thank you all, I am proud of all in these times.

Blessings

Thanks Cardisa , thanks for reading and loving especially the photos it was meant for the purity of true love.

In doing so everyday, there will be no forgetting and no off days.

I feel so torn when I hear kids in these times I hear Kids say to their Mother , that they forget her birthday or mothers day anything, simply if you are not trying to remember , you are actually trying to forget.

So make everyday mothers day , can't forget then.

Blessings and sincere thanks, and you are first! lol..
