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.

We cannot say enough how much we love our mothers... love the repetition and the beautiful lines you share to pay tribute to your mother. This is exquisite poetry at its finest (not that I expected any less). I really admire your gift with words, Julie. - FT

What a precious poem for your mother... no greater present to give our mother on her day is love which you eloquently expressed yours for her.

your very welcome
Absolutely gorgeous dedication to your mother Julie! I love how you say that though there have been many tears, there are none today. Instead, you choose to remember the beautiful memeories, and the small things in your every day that remind you of your mom. She would absolutely love this piece!

Thank you Jacob :) Julie
Mothers day is a special day set apart for showing your mom that she is loved.
But knowing the love that is or was shared is much more powerfully expressed in your poetry.

And I know that you think of her often..... specially when you see the cala lillies that she so loved.

Beautifully poem for your dear mother.
