Treasure Island

Carl Browne

(18th February 1976 / Nottingham, England)

Your Perfect Mum


It takes a Mother's love
to make a house a home,
A place to be remembered,
no matter where we roam.

It takes a Mother's patience,
to bring a child up right,
And her Courage and her
Cheerfulness
to make a dark day bright.

It take a Mother's
Thoughtfulness
to mend the heart's ''hurts, ''
And her Skills and her endurance
to mend little socks and shirts.

It take a Mother's Kindness
to forgive us when we err,
To sympathize in trouble
and bow her head in prayer.

It takes a Mother's Wisdow
to recognize our needs,
and to give us reassurance
by her loving words and deeds.

It takes a Mother's Endless love,
her Confidence, her trust,
To guide us through life's pitfalls, of selfishess and lust.

It takes a Mothers heart, to help us when we fall,
To brush the dirt off our knees, so we can stand up tall.

And that is why in all this world there couldn't be another,
And I thank god everyday that my kids have you, as their MOTHER!

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
