A lonely Mothers Day

A lonely Mothers Day

A Poem by Rosary

A letter to my mom and sort of a story of gratitude


Happy Mothers Day Mommy !

Yea this one, this day got to me.

I cried on your birthday,

I even cried on my birthday,

However, today i had to do more then just cry,

I had to do something for you,

so i bought  this rose.


Its yellow your favorite...

I only bought you one of them...

No it not becuase im broke..

It's what you said that drove me to get it...

1 rose means more then a dozen,

When its given with love,

When its given from the heart,

When its given from you MY sweet rose.


Yes every mothers day i got you a rose,

Sometimes I threw in some russell stovers when i had enough cash.

A single yellow rose and a box of chocolates,

Sort of a tradition I guess.


I remember youd pick out the vanilla ones,

Those were always your favorite.

Then the rest of the pieces youd share with all of us.

You were always so genorous...


It's hard to believe that just a year ago I was handing the box and the flower directly to you.

Afterwards, recieving one of your heartfelt hugs of appreciation.

Today, however, the box and rose sit lonely on the kitchen table.

Im not sure quite yet what to do with them just yet.

I just simply had to get them.

I had to do something for you on this day,

This empty lonely mothers day.....


I miss you so much mommy!

I miss your warm heartfelt hugs...

I miss crying on your shoulders as you wiped my tears away....

I miss watching movies with you giggling and crying, almost in unison....

I miss your voice it could comfort me in the darkest times...

I miss your excitement over every little achievment me or annie made...

I miss the proud look you gave when you looked at my little one...

i .... i... simply just ...miss everything about you ....

A beautiful tribute to your mom, I lost my son last year, and my parents are both gone so I sympathize with you, This is a wonderful interpretation of your love. Thank you for sharing. Debileah
