This week I was so touched to receive a poem, two actually, that were written by Chloe for me. I had no idea she had done this for me! She has been working on a book of poetry for months now, but it is mostly about the changing of the seasons. She also wrote a special poem for my brother and sister-in-law’s wedding this past summer. We (more like Chloe and Daddy) are working on a published book version of her collection of rhyming poems that she has completed. It looks fantastic and I am excited to see it come together and then arrive in full color printed form! This time though, she wrote two poems for me in honor of Mother’s Day.
As a mother you have a one-track mind, to be firm but kind
As a teacher you like to be firm, so we grow up to be bookworms
As a maid you want the house to look nice so when cleaning you are very precise
What I am trying to say is….
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!!!
I love you very much, one because you are soft to the touch
You are the best teacher a girl could get, because you were the one to teach me the alphabet
I love you also because, when I do something great you always applause
You are twenty-two years older and much bolder
You are so much smarter than me, I guarantee
Again, I am aiming to say…..
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!!
