Mother's Day

by Mustangpatty1029

It’s the day we honor Mother,
wherever she may be
send love
She gave to us like no other,
from next door or is she
A mother's true love never dies,
it's too pure and simple
she tries
Not all mothers are quite so wise
their hearts have a dimple
all lies


The Memento, created by Emily Romano is a poem about a holiday or an anniversary, consisting of two stanzas as follows: the syllable count should be 8 beats for line one; 6 beats for line two; and two beats for line three. This is repeated twice for each stanza. The rhyme scheme is a/b/c/a/b/c for each of the two stanzas.

I wrote this poem as dual edged because I have some very ambivalent feelings about my mother. I know that some others on the site can relate. Thank you for reading this poem.
