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 goodbye

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'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.

      Sweet Hub.
