Mother's Gift


I look upon this summer sky
A night so dark and bright!
Wanders a thought eleventh May
Mother’s day in my mind

Years now her I lost since
Mother my so dear
Stare my eyes the sky above
A thousand stars alight!

Among the glow and glitter there
One star I find differs
That sends down cool and loving gaze;
Feel whispers soothing words

The love and care so missing long
Drift on me through air
I get a gift on Mother’s Day!
My mother right up there!

    I find this very touching and it pulls my heart string. As i can also relate to this, ..sometimes, i look up to the sky, pretending that one of the stars there is my mother looking down at me whispering words that puts me to sleep in peace..Thanks for this sharing (Report) Reply

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
