Poetry: Mother’s Day


Since it’s Mother’s Day, I’ve decided to re-post this from last Mother’s Day, May 10, 2015. It’s an old poem I wrote. Hope everyone’s enjoying their Sunday and Mother’s Day.

mothers-day

Sometimes, when I’m working and I’m bored, random thoughts would invade. Yesterday afternoon, the random thought of Mother’s Day brought me to search my archived files. Years ago, I dabbled in poetry and songs (I wanted to be a singer back then).

Of course, I wasn’t very good at it. Anyway, upon searching my poem collection, I came across this little something-something about mothers. I have no idea what the heck it was that inspired me to write this. Reading it, I kept giggling, thinking it’s so cheesy.

Since it’s Mother’s Day, I’m throwing it out there. I’m sure it’s not as good as some of you poets out there. It’s supposed to be a song. Please no judging.

You gave me life
You watched me grow
You let me live my life
Like it was meant to be
You never ask much from me
You just want me to be okay
 
Now I’m standing here
With my arms wide open
I want you to know
That I’m here for you
And this is for you
 
So let me give thanks
For all that you taught me
To help me survive
To help me grow
And helped me find my dreams
 
I am standing here
With my arms wide open
And I want you to know
That I’ll be there for you
When you need help
Because this is for you
 
You helped me go through
Tough times, happy times and sad times
I just want you to know that
 
I’ll standing here
With my arms wide wide open
And want you to know
That I’ll be there for you
When you’re down, when you’re sad
And when you need my help
Because this is for you
This song is for you
