Mothers Day Tribute

Happy Mothers Day

Happy Mothers Day to all who have ever held a child in their arms. To Mothers everywhere that never got to hold their child in their arms. And for all those Moms who would love to hold their child again in their arms. Today is your day... our day to celebrate the love that we have so deep in our hearts for the children of our lives.

When my son was growing up we said a bible verse every night.

Matthew 19:14 NIV

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

Though this is Moms day... it is our children we want next to us to celebrate it!

Dancing in the Pansies
I danced in the garden with the fairies all about
prancing and swinging and voices of shout
the pansies were purple with yellow so bright
truly dear mother it twas a grand sight.

I smile at the flowers, the roses and ferns
but it is you my dear mother that my heart so does yearn
so while dancing and prancing in the Pansies you loved
we will sing praises and joy to the heavens above

That today is the day, my mother above
where my memories are fond of the mom I so loved
though tomorrow they will come as they do every day
today and forever and always will stay!

A loving tribute to my mother Evelyn, who slipped away from us December 21, 1984.
I miss you mom!

Happy Mothers Day to you!


  1. What a nice tribute to your mother. I did a small tribute to my mom on my blog. I don't write poetry, but I did post a couple of old photos from the 70s.

    Happy Mother's Day to you Betsy!
