Poem for Mother’s Day

 

Every Day is Mother’s Day

 

First smile, first laugh, first sweet embrace

The tender way they touch your face

Every day is mother’s day

 

First sit, first crawl, first tooth, first walk

The joy when they begin to talk

Every day is mother’s day

 

The fun when they begin to play

The cries when they don’t get their way

Every day is mother’s day

 

The day they start to question why

And ask what happens when you die

Every day is mother’s day

 

The climbs, the falls, the hurts, the tears

As they learn to overcome their fears

Every day is mother’s day

 

The very first day you’re on your own

You take them to school, come home alone

Every day is mother’s day

 

The very first time they stay out late

And you remember your first date

Every day is mother’s day

 

The love, the joy, the guilt, the pain

The more you give, the more you gain

Every day is mother’s day

Every Day is Mother's Day
