Mothers Day 2005
Author: Clive B Ringshall


On this day we blended as one,
On this day we two became one,
Then a mum youíve become,

So proud you feel,
Many sleepless nights,
Those cut and bruises youíre also a nurse,
The wining and complaining
That followed each precious year,

Grounded they were much more than once,
The phone was their life,
We should have had two,

I remember you were always there,
I remember youíre hug kept them secure,
No other but you could tuck them in,
The storyís you told kept them wanting more,
Your voice so gentle,
Mine was kept to toe the invisible line.

I thank you for all those times now past,
I thank you for the tomorrows to come,
Did I tell you?
I love you with ever beat of my heart,
Did I tell you,
Iím glad youíre my wife,

I wish you today and every one that follows,
A happy motherís day,
That started with a kiss,
Then we blended as one,
Then you become a mum.

------- Author's Notes -------

Happy Mothers Day, To you all the true Hero's the mums and the single dad's too. I respect you all.
