Mother's Day - Poem by Dan Brown

How brave you were to plant a seed;
to try and grow a tree
and nurture such a little weed
that ended up being me.

The strength and love it took to raise,
I simply cannot know,
for you are bonded in such ways
that meant you could not grow.

With smiles and hugs and words you came,
attending every day -
a gardener in all but name
to help me on my way.

Of all I am, you are the sum,
my brilliant, beautiful Mum.
