MOTHER'S DAY:

MOTHER'S DAY:
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.

  4. That's a good reminder that I need to send my mom a hug. I think we sometimes forget moms are human.

    1. Thanks for your wonderful comment Elizabeth, yes we mums are human that's why it hurts when two of my children don't bother with me.

  7. A late Happy Mother's Day to you, Yvonne. Maybe one day your children will remember how you cared for them and still love them. Then perhaps they'll realize what a wonderful mother you are. I pray for you and them.
