This Mother's Day

This Mother's Day

Mere words are insufficient.

Mere words cannot express -

the many tossed emotions

of pain to happiness.


I long to see your face again -

though we are far apart.

I long to hold your hand again

and give you all my heart.


At first I held my feelings back

for which I can't explain.

So now emotions come alive

as with a hurricane!


For I am here and you are there.

There's no where I can turn.

There are no hugs and kisses past

that point of no return.


Oh, how I pray that I could make

my failures up to you.

Yet lost through winds of futile hope,

there's nothing I can do.


Mere time deceives the lazy heart

and says, "It's not a crime -

to wait until the rain has stopped,

then take your good ol' time."


So time has slipped away from me.

So many things it stole.

The greatest?  Not expressing love...

That sorrow rips my soul.


All Heaven knows my mom is there -

so friends, do not delay.

Give any lonely mom you find,

your love this Mother's Day.
