Perhaps you will pause for a minute or scroll on by.
This Mother’s Day make sure you call your mother, at least to say ‘hi’.
Don’t send her a text, email or just a delivery.
Let her hear your voice or see your angel face physically.
Where she can touch and look upon you directly.
A mother can look into your eyes and know your lies.
It’s also the place that tells her you’re weak or how much you’ve tried.
She will always make your favorite meal on the fly.
Be the one that answers, Every. Single. Time.
Make sure you tell her you love and appreciate her
Hug up, squeeze up and draw nearer, nearer
Tell her you’re acknowledging her worth.
That you know you changed her life at your birth
Your words are heavy, make sure you don’t stutter
Joke about how you know you’re the best thing in her life
That you live happily, that will make her smile; her heart flutter.
Call your mother this Mother’s Day
Let the conversation linger on, let her say all she has to say
Somewhere in all the pleasantries your fears will be exposed
But do not feel guilt when she says ‘a mother always knows’.
Tell her you’re grateful she’s recognized you as an adult.
That you don’t intentionally mean to be difficult.
Before you run off the phone, say ‘I love YOU mama’.
You’re all I worry and think about
Remind her that for all 365 days, she’s all you care about.
