M is for Mom – Free Write Friday prompt

This is my post for Kellie’s Free Write Friday prompt. Please check out all the others that contribute, they are worth the time for sure….

How much time have you spent in life
Wondering what your future would be
Any time at all is more than you’d have
If your Mom hadn’t desired your face to see.

Mother, Mom or even Mama to start
We are safe in the crook of her arm
A grizzly bear has nothing on this one
If someone tries the little one to harm.

For most those arms guide us straight
Giving all the care we need until grown
Then we pay back all those years she gave
Remembering as we raise families of our own.

Life isn’t always as kind as we’d like
Some are taken too soon, young or old
So cherish all those moments, let it be known
Honor her for her love; her take time now to hold.

While it should never come down to one day a year
Take this special day to make sure all can see
That your Mother is worth all the time that she spent
And that without her, standing here, you would not be.

    Brilliant poem, great rhythm and sentiment – loved the ending
    Take this special day to make sure all can see
    That your Mother is worth all the time that she spent
    And that without her, standing here you would not be.

    I’m in awe of how you can so beautifully express things that most, if not all, of us feel, but can’t articulate it as well as you. Well done. Thanks for sharing with us.
