Only Love

Only Love

A Poem by MsJewel
"

~ for my mother on Mother's Day ~

"

 

Art ~ Garmash

 

 

~~~

So many tears from heaven fell

but not today

 

Today

love is a rainbow…

 

as butterflies dance

like tiny ballerinas

carefree and beautiful

 

decorating a sky

as blue as your eyes

 

While reflections of love

~~ Only love ~~

Shine in mine

 

No, there are no tears today

 

Just rainbows…

 

and lilies

blooming in a soft bouquet

of watercolor dreams

adorning a garden of memories

 

No, there are no tears today

not on this spring morning

 

Today,

there is only love

 

Happy Mother’s Day Mom

I miss you

~~~

I am a mother of 6, My kids are still at the age where on Mother's day I get gifts of soggy toast and hand drawn cards/pictures, I sometimes long for them tom grow up and write me words on a card similar to what you have written but at the same time I like them being so innocent and young, so sggy toast instead of loving kind words it is then for another few years :) I'm new here, just joined yesterday, If you have time maybe you could pop by and read some of my work? Many thanks xK.

You've shared a beautiful poem that caught me by surprise at the end. To celebrate your mother in such a way is inspirational. This is an excellent job Julie.

You're welcome Julie, My mom passed about 12 years ago.
(((((((Julie)))))))))))))) what a beautiful poem. I know you miss your Mom terribly. The love you still feel for her shines through every line of this touching tribute. Memories....they are what we have to hold onto. they have to suffice. Lydi**

Mothers have such a big influence on our lives. When they are gone we still love and miss them like crazy. Valentine

Thank you Kathie :) Julie
Really beautiful words.
From what I can read it seems like an memorial poem and your mom would be really proud.
If it's not I guess your mom really appreciate your kind words.

Thanks for sharing.

Julie, I've read a lot of Mother's Day tributes here on WC but yours is probably the sweetest and most tender that I've read. I especially loved how you compared butterflies to tiny ballerinas...gorgeously analogous thought. Thank you for sharing this, it is going into my library favorites. take care...dan
