Poetic Impulses – Happy Mother’s Day

When the situation requires it, the poet in me rises.

A short, poetic dedication to all mothers out there, and especially to mine.


My mother’s eyes are just like the sun,

Warm, ever glowing and strong; like her there is no one,

You were my friend when friends were few,

Everything that’s good in me I owe to you,

You taught me how to stand on my own two,

How to do for others and continue to do,

You taught me to give and expect nothing in return,

Your precious smile and laughter is a gift for which I always yearn,

You sacrificed a lot to ensure,

That we were raised properly, and had a lot to endure,

When we were young,

You taught us to distinguish right from wrong,

But most importantly,

You taught us how to depend on we,

I pray when the day comes for me to start my family,

That I can show a mere fraction of the love you showed for me,

Through it all, a single fact we know is true,

One day a year is not enough to celebrate the joy of YOU

You are the light of our lives,

Words are not enough to say,

How much we love you each and every day.

Happy Mother’s Day Mom.

Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.
