within your womb and welcoming arms
the journey from dream to birth
protecting us from all harms
a heart of love and mirth
you’ve taken a solemn oath
in this school of love
with lessons in growth
offering your peace dove
little by little we learn to let go
til eventually we leave the nest
ready to conquer the world we know
no need for mothers or rest
sadly we learn it’s not so easy
to offer the love we must
sometimes we feel queasy
but it’s love or bust
thanks for your love
nurturing, kindness and hugs
your steady guidance from above
appreciating our beauty and grubs
My tribute to Mom, and all the women (or men) who love, cook, clean, teach, guide and nurture our lives. You offer us unconditional love in which to thrive. Now, more than ever, the world needs your love to lead us in new ways of cooperating with each other and the planet.
Happy Mother’s Day. Thanks for all your love! ❤

That is a lovely tribute…there is some emotion which you seem to have half-expressed and covered it up with an amazing picture! Yes…mothers are THE best hope…the unparalleled and unprecedented!
Thanks Balroop. I wonder if that hidden part is the not perfect aspects of my Mom and our relationship? But I accept we’re all doing the best we can and learning to embrace the imperfections of people and life. Which picture? Yes, the world needs a lot more nurturing and cooperation. As our speaker at Unity said today, the men have been leading for millennia and see where that’s gotten us!
What a loving, beautiful, poetic tribute to your mum, Brad! Thank you for sharing your words of love.
You’re most welcome, the love and tribute comes from my heart. 🙂
ah, this was beautiful….thank you 🙂
Thanks Miranda, from my heart to yours and all Mothers. XD
Very, very nice, Brad.
Thank you Cynthia. 🙂
What a beautiful tribute, Brad ❤ Mothers are so precious, their love unconditional indeed!
Thank you my dear Himani. I hope and pray we’re all learning to be more unconditional with our love. I have a ways to go! 🙂

in France, we celebrate mama’s day on May 25th…
Thanks Melanie. LOL, no my Mom is not Italian, though she is a Euro mix. Did I make her sound Italian? 🙂
Most people celebrate with meals, flowers and cards in the US. What do you do in France? Happy mama’s day!
