In 1980 I had only enough money to buy my mother a Mothers Day card, no money for a gift. So I sat down and thought of this poem and wrote it inside her card. She loved it so much that I later had it put on a plaque which hung in her dining room for 20 years until her death. I recited the poem at her funeral service and put the plaque in her casket for her to have forever. I love and miss you Mom.
A Mothers Day gift.
I could go purchase something nice to give to you this day;
flowers, books and other things; they all have words to say.
But if a gift is meant to show my love, why do I have the need,
to tell you that I love you and that I'm proud to be your seed.
Your loving and caring and doing without as I grew though the years,
will never be forgotten Mom, in fact it brings me tears.
My heart is full of room for Dad and my family and friends all share;
but NO ONE else will ever touch, the space for you in there.
Happy Mothers Day!
