A Mother's Day Wish



This is for my dearest wife Cathie Who MOTHERS me every DAY of the year But the moment I have to wear diapers Is when I can no longer live here If she places me in an old people's home Won't be upset or hold a big grudge Though I'll no longer be able to think rationally Sure hope she brings me some fudge In closing I'd just like to comfort her Wow, forgot what was I about to confess Oops! It's time to change my diapers again So far I can still clean my own mess! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Ooooh the vicious cycle... to have diapers when you're young only to have them again when you're old. I truly thought I was going to read some gushy-lovey-dovey stuff when I opened up your poem... you always seem to know how to surprise me though! Funny stuff... and if you got anymore fudge make it Mint Chocolate :)

    As I said, she mothers me like a mother! Don't know what I'd do without my sweet lady!

    Lol, you got it made, Jack. She is everything to you. So if you complained, I will tell :). Tell Cathie I say hello and wish her a great Mother's Day!

    Cathie said thank you with a tear in her eye and said to tell you she wishes the same for you, dear Toquyen! xoxox

    I was about to mow a few extra yards, for the summer... when I messed up my foot... The kids won't be home for Mother's Day... But my Hubby will be pampering me all day... He's sooo sweet... like Cathie... It's good to have them with us.... Wish I could see Mom again... but that will happen in due time so I'm putting some flowers on her grave... for now.
