Sand and Sea: A Six Month Anniversary Poem
>> View all 32
For all the Mothers, have a great day! This poem is for my dear Mama.
In every moment; in every way
You have been there always,
each and every day
You have fixed me tacos; you have set me straight
You’ve ridden my tail when I
have been late
You’ve taught me to love, though I’ve failed miserably
To reach the example you have set for me
You’ve lived through my tantrums and moments of drama
And that is why I am proud you’re my Mama
You have bought me sports cards, though I had too many
I had several hundred, if I had any
But, you always felt there was room for one more
As the youngest, you felt I earned them I’m sure
When we went to the beach, you led me by hand
You would not complain whenever I’d eat sand
You always figured in time I would learn
To follow your lead and make the right turn
For this Mother Day, I wish you much joy
Although I am grown, I’m still your “little boy”
Dear Mama, I love you more than words can say
Wherever I go, in my heart you’ll stay
You’ll always know better than I ever will
Even with the guidance you tried to instill
In this brick-brained boy who has become a man
Happy “Mama’s” Day; I’ll see you when I can

|Nate, I'm glad Jill encouraged you to write because this is simply beautiful! I liked the great images and your play on words. I'm sure your Mother will have a great Mother's Day because you sure appear to be "one" fine son. A great job!|

|Wondrous and very beautiful tribute reflecting all the wonderful things your mother gave and did for you, yet asked for nothing in return. I pray your mom has a very beautiful day....
Be always safe,

|Ahhhhhh......Nate..... if this doesn't have your "Mama" in tears, I don't know what will. I am sure she will love this and please wish her a Happy Mother's Day from me.
Have a great weekend and I'll e-mail you later,
