My Mother


You’ve given me life
You’ve shown me kindness
You’ve taught me compassion
You’ve proven me resilience
Above all you taught me love

Because of you
I am who I am today
It’s your sacrifices
Made me strong
It’s your courage
Made me think
It’s your dream
I live today

I hope it’s worth it
Things you did not do
Places you did not go
People you did not spend time
I know its all for me

We fight, we yell
We forgive, we make up
I hope you know
How grateful I am
To have you in my life
I hope you know
I love you forever and always

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
