A POEM FOR MY MOTHER

This piece is a poem inspired by the sunshine, Spring and Summer seasons, and that very special person in everybody’s lives: their mother.

This is a poem written when the daffodils were in full bloom, for my own mother, back in the Spring of 2012.

I’d like to thank her for all that she has ever done for my sister and I throughout our lifetimes. She is a true inspiration and superwoman in my eyes.

I hope you like it.

Yellow Daffodil

 

Imagine,

a youthful daffodil

as it thrives

beneath the yellow

amidst a field of green.

 

Imagine if you were that yellow,

Overbearing?

No.

Interfering?

No.

Just there, to nurture,

and little daffodil, she grows.

 

Imagine,

a towering sunflower

as it leans

against the panel

above the field of green.

 

Are you still that yellow?

 

There, but not so bright.

There, but fading.

There, everlasting,

but not always present

as the rain sets in.

And yet, towering sunflower, he continues to grow.

 

The sun, the light,

even when not so bright.

I may not always need you,

He may not always need you,

but you are always there,

our Mother.
