Beauty That Never Fades

Updated on April 30, 2013

Simple Love

I sit here and reflect on many times we have shared over the years

So special so sweet

I can't pick out just one time

Because they are like a bouquet of the prettiest roses

A sunshine that wakes you up when you are sleeping

A warm blanket that comforts you when you are tired

A good meal that fills your stomach when you are hungry

Understanding her love is something I will always try to figure out

Mothers do not just do because they have to

Then go far beyond any limit

They do because they want to

Always caring when we are at our weakest point

Supporting us when we need help

Letting go when they know

It is time

To watch us go on our own

As they patiently wait

To see what we have learned and forgotten

Still helping after all these years

Giving more when we don't even know

This is one time

I wish I could do for you what you did for me

Once again I come up short

Missing you and thinking what would you be doing

Then I listen as you would say

In a soft voice with so much meaning

Celebrate and do not waste each precious moment

For we all have our place and time

To be born and mine was April 30th 1929

I had my life

Where I also made many mistakes and was far from perfect

Remember if your heart is in the right place

Life is so much simplier and nobody can stop you

Yes this was my birthday and I would of turned eighty four

So you go out and have some fun

I will be watching and laughing with you

Because that is what mothers do

Love their family unconditionally for eternity

      The perfect tribute for Mothers' Day - day after tomorrow, Dream On!

      My darling mother has been gone 39 years, yet I miss her as if it were yesterday I heard her voice and felt her presence. Were she alive now, she would be 121 next December! wow.

      Just a wonderful and beautiful tribute to mom. You know moms stay with us all our lives just to be sure we're OK. I thought my mom was going to live to at least 100 but she died at 84. I miss her but I know she is still with me.
