Happy Mother’s day to all the human & pet mother’s today!
It’s been 10 years since I originally wrote this poem for my mom.
3 things of which to be mindful when reading…
- my mom’s name is Margaret
- the meaning of the name Margaret is pearl
- her first grandchild is named Miles
Margaret you are a pearl indeed,
Over the years you’ve always been
The comforter when I’m in need -
Healing hands for your next of kin.
Each moment I was feeling blue
Right was I to turn towards you.
Magical moments, thinking of
Our bond that’s evolved over time.
Totally unrequited love
Has helped me grow and to refine.
Every word you spoke so long ago
Resonates through me as I grow.
Mom do you sense your saintliness?
Outperforming most moms by Miles.
Today I cherish your caress;
Heartfelt, compassionate smiles.
Everything you did now makes sense…
Realize you made all the difference.
