Mom
~~~


A  seed  was  planted  long  ago
by  loving  caring  hands
With  grace  of  god  and  tender  care
it  grew  from  blessed  sands
~
Our  family  tree  you  nourished
with  love  and  understanding
The  task  at  hand  you  met  with  grace
though  taxing  and  demanding
~
Our  branches  grew
so  straight  and  strong
Your  efforts  plain  to  see
A  multitude  of  fragrant  blooms
each  year  we  give  to  thee
~
We  reminisce  with  sentiment
emotions  overcome
No  card
no  flower
no  spoken  word
can  thank  the  lord  for
Mom
~~~

Beautifully simple. I love it.  

 Nothing can deter a poet, for he is actuated by pure love. Who can predict his comings and goings? "Thoreau"

Thankyou everyone for the beautiful replies ... I wrote this to give to my mother along with some flowers and a dinner engagement ... posting it was not really my initial intent ... but noticed there were a few others posted so I added this to the collection
Thanks again

Thankyou vandana ... there are a multitude of the worlds best amature poets that gather here at passions ... with more dropping in each day ... I love to sit and read ... at no monitary cost ... and I couldn't find better poetry in any store bought book ... I wish I had the time to read and reply to more ... especially the replies are of great importance to a writer and I thankyou for yours ... I post in other forums where I get no replies, but it does show the hit count for each poem ... some are in the hundreds ... so to those who don't get many replies ... remember that a lot more people read than do reply ... thanks to everyone again for your kindness and Happy Mothers Day to all

Very nice and absolutly beautiful
Well done Rex

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.
