When I first dabbled in creative writing, I wrote lovely sentimental words. These were bespoke cards with messages about them from me. My primary purpose was to find a card with blank space for my verse. Later I experimented and stuck my printed poem on top of any previous text.
That's how I started writing creatively.
I don't know if this one went into a card, but that doesn't matter. It's the words that matter, right?
Mothers are special, it's true. The bond has to be strong to cope with the ups and downs of life. I like the mention of time as how precious this is. There's no time like the present to tell that special someone that you love them. Those who wait too long may live with regrets once their mum has sadly passed.
I personally take time for my mum. We speak at least once a week and catch up. I like this time. It special as your words are on this poem.
Well said Milly. As my own mom is getting up there in age and is dealing with various medical issues it brings reality smack in the face and I know I won't have her forever. I think of my own kids and thank God daily we are all in a good place. Well done with this-
