Poetry by Mimi: May 2021


Today is the day for all mothers
Celebrate her and make her smile
Get her a gift or some flowers
And lighten her heart for a while

She was teacher, wife, mother and cook
During a year that was so very hard
Topped off perhaps by working from home
If nothing else, make or buy her a card

Let the words in the card ring out
About how you appreciate
The 100% that she’s tried to give
To her children, her family and mate

No matter the situation
She’s someone on whom you depend
Through each trial and tribulation
She’s been confidante, counselor and friend

So, if you sincerely love her
Just promise to lift any strife
Beginning today you can promise
Your mom will have a wonderful life
