Her Way

There once was a time I called you just about every day Years ago, that almost feel like yesterday My friends may have thought I was a mama's boy But that was okay I'd call you anyway Always interested in what you had to say Now I ponder the time I've wasted The hours I've lost I guess living life has a cost As within daily living we're tossed Grown up problems and being bossed Getting older Hair turning to frost I might call less But you I'd never forget Loving you is a sure bet I know you will always listen Whether I'm happy or upset You're the one in my corner When others think I'm all wet Other's might have frilly moms I love that you are strong Your hugs one of my favorite things They make me feel like I belong So important When sometime things go wrong I know that you and me will always get along So on this coming mother's day I'll give thanks as I pray Appreciative that you are more than okay You are a one of a kind My favorite A true original Better than Frank Sinatra No apologies Outrageous Wonderful woman Doing it your way! I love you mom Happy Birthday!

My Mom and I text each other daily, even if it's just to say, I LUV U... It's great that you have such a close relationship with your mother. This is a beautiful and touching tribute to her!

Blessed is the man who loves his mother AND is able to express it in ways few men can. Blessed is the mother who gave birth to such source of love and devotion, the talent is a bonus! :) Kim

The love you and your mother share is remarkable and so self evident in this poem. You recall all the magic that surrounds your life and recognize that your mother is the source and inspiration for that magic. This is a very touching poem filled to overflowing with love. Emile. #7

No one in the world can love a child as much as her /his mother do...Its unexplainable love,almost like God's love itself.Richard what a heart grabbing tribute this is..And its good that you used to call your mom everyday..keep callin as much as you can..I do call mom too and Im definitely the opposite of being a mommy a girl..I just know that one day I might pick up that phone and mom might not be there..So now is the moment...An amazing post..A fav.
