I don’t know how you managed
To put up with me so long,
To endure my moody outbursts
As you taught me right from wrong.
I don’t know how you always
Knew exactly what to say
To help me through my problems
‘Til we made them go away.
I don’t know how you managed
To support me all those years,
To encourage all my dreams
And protect me from my fears.
But I’m thankful that you did it,
For without you there for me,
I could never be the person
That I always hoped to be.
So I thank you for your patience
To stick with me to the end,
And I thank you for your wisdom
As a mentor and a friend.
I thank you for your kindness,
A true blessing from above.
But most of all, I thank you
For your never-ending love.
To be an awesome parent
Is the most challenging task,
Yet you’re still the greatest mother
For whom anyone could ask.
I don’t know how you do it,
But I’m really glad you do.
Happy Mother’s Day to you, Mom!
Love, your daughter who loves you!
Happy Mother’s Day to my awesome mom! Thank you for all the love and support you’ve given me my whole life! I love you!
To love someone intensely is to feel
Complete beside the person you adore.
When life gives you a love so pure and real,
You live each day to feel it more and more.
To love someone with all your heart and soul
Is finding one with whom to share your life,
So when your trials start to take their toll,
You’ll find peace with your husband or your wife.
To love someone forever is to know
The joy of having someone on your side.
No matter what you do or where you go,
You’ll always be together for the ride.
All that I’ve learned of love, you two taught me.
I love you! Happy Anniversary!
Wonders of the sky
Such lovely shapes in the clouds
That we spy above
These curious minds
Ponder this blossoming love
And see everything
Through these secret eyes
Everything is beautiful
Our wonderful life
My responses to Ronovan Writes‘ Weekly Haiku Challenge #144: Wonder & Spy. Sorry I’m late on this one; I just couldn’t resist such an interesting theme! Thanks for the prompt, Ronovan!
Celebrate the Earth
And its natural treasures
That sustain all life
Take care of your home
Recycle, reuse, reduce
And preserve the world
Science is the key
To defending all life from
Save our dear planet
Defend the environment
March on this Earth Day!
If you enjoy the sweetest snack,
Be sure to follow every track:
A set of paw prints leading back
Outside into the dawn.
You catch a glimpse of something white
That came to visit in the night
To bring you treats and sweet delight:
A bunny on your lawn!
You look down at the grassy ground
And gaze in wonder all around
At all the chocolate eggs you’ve found
To munch throughout the day.
Now spend the day with ones you love
To celebrate the Lord above!
Enjoy the fun (and chocolate) of
This blessed Easter Sunday!
Happy Easter to all my family, friends, and readers who are celebrating! May you all have a blessed weekend!
