For You Mum

It’s Mothering Sunday today.
Everyone has (or had) a Mother, Mum, Mom, Ma, Mama, Mummy, whatever you like to call her.
For some, they are no longer with us, but we remember them often, not just today.
Many, like me, are not as close as we’d like to be, be it distance or emotionally, but that doesn’t mean we love her any less, nor that we aren’t thinking of her.
I wrote this for my Mum’s handmade card this year and would like to dedicate it to Mothers everywhere:

A Mother is like an exquisite bloom,
Her loving smile brightens any room,
Her open arms let you know she’s there
To surround you with her tender care.
As years go by and we all age,
Memories are written on every page
Of the mental book of our life within,
Filled with love to the very brim.
And so on Special Days like this,
When we are not close enough to kiss
The cheek of the face we loved to touch,
Of a Mum who means so very much.


Happy Mother’s Day to you all

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
