Happy Mother’s Day
Today I honor my mother who gave me life
Treasuring the times when we were together;
She was always there when I needed her
Her endless love will go on forever.
Fond memories of my mother
Quietly pass through my mind;
Of all the days we shared with each other
For she was a loving mom and so kind.
She is missed each and every day
I still feel her spirit surround me;
Her gentle voice whispers in my ear
This too shall pass, just let it be.
Happy Mother’s Day to my mom
You will forever have a place in my heart;
For you gave your life to help me grow
Our spirits shall never drift apart.
Budding trees burst with joy
As the day awakens to the rising sun;
Leaves pop open on each tender branch
Nature’s work has just begun.
A warm breeze flows from the wind
As it gently touches the tree;
A song is heard from the moving leaves
Softly swaying with a rhythmic glee.
Gentle rain falls from the sky
Washing away the dust in the air;
Drops of dew accumulate upon each leaf
Nourishment that provides its care.
As the fog begins to lift and fade away
The wind sends a stronger breeze;
Sun shines brightly as the clouds drift apart
Sending warmth to the budding trees.
These daffodils pop up from the earth
To welcome the warmth of the sun;
Tis an early sign from nature
That warmer days are yet to come.
Bright yellow blossoms greet the eye
Upon their long sturdy green stems;
Flowering bulbs of the Spring season
Oh how we always welcome them.
Cut a few to bring indoors and admire
What a cheerful sight to see;
Yellow glowing colors stand out
Providing nature’s beauty to thee.
A cheerful message these flowers send
That this day is as precious as the next;
A moment of time not to go unnoticed
For life is not meant to be so complex.
Sign of Spring
This blade of green grass
Tis a sure sign of Spring;
Rising from the cold earth
Look what it will bring.
A gift of hope
Warmer days are yet to come;
Hiding beside winter’s kill
Hurray! Spring has just begun.
Life awakens as daylight increases
From the darkness of former days;
Nature’s garden is brewing
From the energy of the sun’s rays.
A new beginning lies ahead
Just waiting to be discovered;
In this transition of the seasons
Are moments waiting to be uncovered.
The Gift of Beauty
Stop and take a break
From the many things you do;
Discover the moment at hand
This is time given to you.
The gift of beauty is right there
Before your eyes to see;
Notice the delicate design
Made from the energy of the tree.
The pallet of colors so very vibrant
Pay attention and take notice;
Nature has created this beauty
Admire its simplicity as your eyes focus.
Take a breath and enjoy the air
This break has been so needed;
Life has a gentle flow of energy
When you seem to feel depleted.
The Game of Life
Life is a wonderful game
Game that has its rules
Rules to understand
Understand and follow
Follow each day of life
Life given to me and you
You are in control of the play
Play each move with care
Care from the heart
Heart that is full of love
Love the present moment
Moment that is precious and dear.
Place your hand upon your heart
It will not lead you astray;
For every beat it makes
Brings life to your day.
As you breathe fresh air
Focus on its constant flow;
It should be a pleasant reminder
Of this moment you have to glow.
The gentle sounds of morning
Find a passage to your ear;
Be thankful for this sense you have
Listen carefully to what you hear.
Go about your day with grace
Staying present in this time;
Enjoy the life you are given
Let the positivity within you shine.
