On Sunday it's Mother;s Day
Here in the UK.
I know it is celebrated in the US,
Sometime in May.
Although I have three children,
I know from them I won't hear.
For two are estranged to me,
Which has caused many a lonely tear.
My youngest son in Spain,
His card always arrives after the event.
But it's lovely to know he thought of me,
With words of love he do send.
I never missed my mother,
When she was here with us.
She was a wonderful mother,
Nothing was too much fuss.
So I will spend a lonely Mother's Day,
Somehow I will cope.
But after all is done and said,
I still hold that one word.....hope.
