Mother’s Day every day

My Mum and Dad in Queen St, Auckland 1956
I walk down the aisle
my eyes passing over cards
word springing out about
Mum going the whole nine yards
And I stop to read a few
The words just seem insipid
when I think of you, Mum
A journey into the intrepid
Four babies later and over 60 years married
Through wars, tonsillitis, tears and love you tarried
Now here I am
a mother too
And these words I say:
“I love you”
Have also come from my son’s mouth and heart
But to say them to you
doesn’t even begin to start
to express what a fantastic Mum you’ve been
You’ve done a good job, I’m a good human being
So I tell you you’re an amazing Mum and people are proud of the job you’ve done!

  2. Lovely tribute to mums everywhere. Even though my mum has been gone these 30 years I still miss and love her. She did a wonderful job with all 3 sons, making us the tolerant, kind adults we are today.
