Mother’s Day every day

My Mum and Dad in Queen St, Auckland 1956

I walk down the aisle

my eyes passing over cards

words 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!

  1. This put tears in my eyes and makes me miss my mom even more. She wasn’t the best mom but she did the best she could. Unfortunately I will never have the chance to tell her “I love you” again. Thank you for this amazing post.

  3. 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.
