SHORT POEMS

Mother... ~ Anon

You filled my days with rainbow lights, 
Fairytales and sweet dream nights, 
A kiss to wipe away my tears, 
Gingerbread to ease my fears. 
You gave the gift of life to me 
And then in love, you set me free. 
I thank you for your tender care, 
For deep warm hugs and being there. 
I hope that when you think of me 
A part of you 
You’ll always see.

A Mother’s Love ~ Anon

Of all the special joys in life, 
The big ones and the small, 
A mother’s love and tenderness 
Is the greatest of them all.

Best Friends ~ Anon

Best friends forever, mom and me 
picking flowers and climbing trees. 
a shoulder to cry on, secrets to share 
Warm hearts and hands that really care.

Sunshine ~ Anon

My Mother, my friend so dear 
throughout my life you’re always near. 
A tender smile to guide my way 
You’re the sunshine to light my day.
