Happy Mothers Day

Harrison wakes his mummy up at 6 o clock 
Annabel soon starts to stir after…Tick tock!
Pain in the ass when you’ve had 5 hours sleep
Pot of tea waiting? No, obviously a price too steep!
Young kids, who’d have ‘em? Now the alarm goes “BEEP”

Many other days I wouldn’t care less
On a Sunday though I just want to de-stress.
Time rolls on and out of bed we get
Harry and Bella drinking juice, now the bed’s all wet!
Excited to watch cartoons on T.V
Rich people I know would have maids, you see!
Scary to think I have many more years until I’m free.

“Daddy, Bella hit me!” echoing in my mind all day
As I pretend to care, but sympathise with him in a way.
You have to understand, this is my typical…. Mothers Day.

    Every day is Mother's Day for the rest of your life. And the worst part of mother's days is when they leave the nest, you can sleep in, but when you get up, no one needs you...while the love continues. Nice poetry, Gareth. Enjoy your children. Days pass fast. When you look back, it seems like the blink of an eye. Reading your poetry this morning has been a wonderful way to start my day. (And thank you for your recent comments on my poetry as well.) Have a super Day! Lovingly, Dane Ann

    Nice acrostic. I enjoyed your rhymes, too. You had me thinking I missed mother's day. This was a fun read. Something like a Mother Goose rhyme. Is there a link with the acrostic "Happy Mother's Day" and Mother Goose, hence the rhyme? lol. Fun Read.
