Tomorrows Words Today

A small word
Representing a big heart
I lack the vocabulary
I cannot adequately express
Still I will search for the words
You keep me humble
My heart has been softened by your spirit

You with God's help granted me breath
Without you I would not be
I am more because you are gentle
You wish to hear my thoughts
You have dreamt along with me
Not your own dreams but mine
Yours is the one voice I long to hear
Even at a distance you are near

I think of you
Mothers day is a day away
You are not here to hear what I say
But I know that you know
You are loved this and every other day

I can't thank you enough
Sometimes life has been tough
We've had to deal with some stuff
Life has taken us on a ride
We made it out the other side

When I think of you I smile
So glad you are my mom
Some may not get you 
You always make me laugh

Others may have moms
None are quite like you
One of my favorite people
Strong in just the right way
Soft in the ways that matter
Always there for me
The most special 

Written for Mom today for tomorrow, I love you mom.

    Very sweet write! :) Your Mama will be proud. From what I remember reading somewhere...she gets on here and reads your work and corrects the spelling, right? That's what Mom's are for! BTW...about your comment about not "seeing" the jacaranda tree? If you really want to...go to my poem, People and Places of my world and copy paste the URL to see my FB album that I've dedicated to my Poetry Soup Friends. You will see several shots of the tree. It is worth seeing... :)

    What a gorgeous tree. For me blue and purple look the same so it still is very colourful. I think God was feeling very artistic when he created this Beauty. Thanks for introducing me to it.

    Awwww, a beautiful Mother's Day wish to that special person. My mother passed on many, many years ago but I think about her daily. Nice one, Richard. Licia :-)
