Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers, daughters of mothers, friends of mothers, mothers of mothers…it’s a day to celebrate your achievements and tenacity. For all of your patience, solitude and endless love. I’ve written a small poem in honour of all of you. Please feel free to share 🙂

Happy Mother's Day

A mother is like a painter

or an architect,

building a family to her exact specifications

crafting manners and values in her children –

gifting them with  kindness, wisdom.

Whatever strange circumstances

led these beautific creatures to share her world,

she has risen to the challenge of host,

protector and guardian

with the best skills she has:

painting smiles on their faces

building confidence and hope in their souls

washing away regret,

reviewing endless plans.

Unforeseen events may demand a change in course

but she paints on, builds on

her vision and love

holding strong.

I give you words like I give you gold
