Mother's Day

I don't know why it's so hard to find
A 'greeting' card of a different kind.
One that is simple, yet so direct
That is tasteful and not suspect.

A card that says, 'It's Mother's Day'
Time for the sun to come out and for us to play.
That reminds us to be thankful for all we share
And give hugs to the one for which we so much care.

No cutesy endearing rhyme
That doesn't apply most of the time.
Or cartoons attempting to be humorous
Or else those that simply disgust.

Then there are those with siruppy sentiment
That you wonder the day after what they meant.
With bouquets of flowers and perhaps a bit of prose
And a perfume smell to tweak your nose.

Well this is one that's different you should know
It's simply just a poem from Joe.
Telling you I love you in so many ways,
And thankful for all the happy days.

A splendid write for Mother's Day Sidi, I know the feeling when buying cards, goodness knows who designs them, most of them are horrendous. Lovely poem and a lovely read, every line is understandable, which I like. Love and hugs Ernestine XXX
