No Flowers,No Candy

No Flowers,No Candy

A Poem by wordman

No flowers
no candy
can i give

But these sweet words
i freely give
no wisdom,no great knowledge
do i have to bestow

But there`s one thing you should know
i will always love you so
you`ve been my mom through thick or thin
and you`ve always been there when i needed a friend

Eventhough you sleep in the arms of angels
it makes me feel better if a card i can write
so happy mothers day mom, from me to you
and mom ,i will always love you...

This is the only recognition that most of us mothers know that we have raised a boy to manhood that knows a woman's worth! Beautiful!

thank you for the visit
Your tribute to your mom comes across as very sincere & heartfelt. I like the way you start . . . we're thinking you can't afford these things, but then we later see that there's no way for you to put anything tangible into her hands anymore. Even tho the situation has a sad note, overall your poem feels upbeat & positive. Thanks for sharing a glimpse into your true feelings.

thank you for reading
A graceful gift of poetry in a tribute so eloquently written to one's mother. A beautiful pen.

thank you jane,we can`t forget them mothers
Oh my. This brought tears to my eyes. It's a horrible feeling to have words for someone that can no longer hear them...even though hopefully they can, somehow. Beautiful poem.
