Mother's Day A Poem

Mother’s Day comes once a year

Let us all hold ours so dear

Even if they are no longer here

We can remember them all year


There’s not a day that goes by

That I do not remember mine

Only having her for a few short years

She’s in my heart and always near



My Mothers favorite flower was

The delicate yellow daffodil

In honor of her I made

Stained glass ones to gently sway

Hanging in a window array



Looking out into the garden

In the springtime you can see

Daffodils I’ve planted

For her from me



I know that she did not want to die

But it was her time to say good-bye

She’s an angel looking down on me

Until we meet for an eternity

      Hi Susan, thanks for sharing this beautiful poem. I think the best thing about Mother's Day is it helps me to slow down and appreciate what I have. Take care, Kelley

      What a beautiful poem! And I love the daffodil you made. I feel as though my grandma's watching over me so I empathise with that. Your hub makes me think that I should appreciate my mum more while she's alive.

      I suspect that yellow daffodils are the appointed flower of heaven. Be well. This was a tender tribute.

      Sensitive and deep. Your mom must be smiling from ear to ear wherever she may be.

      I liked this hub and am sorry to hear you lost your mother so young. I liked your stained glass daffodil. I make stained art also.

      I'm sorry you lost your mom so soon. I had mine for most of my life and I still wasn't ready to let her go.
