Poems of Gratitude for Mother's Day

One of the greatest gifts my mother gave me was the gift of gratitude. Here are two favorite poems that I wrote in time for Mothers Day to reflect gratitude for her and the gifts she gave me.

All that I Have

Grateful, Happy
In All to Have
Love of Family
Love of Friends
Food to Eat
and Clothes to Wear
Gifts for Giving
Much to Share
In All that Can Be
Happy is Free
It's a Wonder
to be Sad
Rather Lack of Appreciation
Is What is Bad
For Happiness to be So
its Gratefulness to Truly Know.

A Mother's Love is Forever

Whether mom is far away or near
Or maybe no longer here
one thing remains constant from year to year
is the love she freely gave
even when we did not quite behave
to teach us how to love ourselves
and one another, by example to save
in words we may not have always wanted to hear
and her caring of the little things to bring such cheer
the lessons she taught us, we still adhere
for the joy of mom we'll forever hold dear
and what better time to say thank you
then on Mother's Day this year.

Nice tribute. Note the typo in title gratitute needs a 'd' in place of final 't'
