Love this Milly sometimes things can waver between parent and child but there's always that bond somewhere deep within, I always treasure my mum as she's helped me through much strife in my lifetime and supported me usually always.
A beautiful write Milly and I could not agree more. Unfortunately I never had that pleasure or desire to say the same about my mother. It is a sad perhaps wrong thing to say but I can't relate nor can I begin to imagin the bond between mother and child. I love my children to the moon and back and that is why mother's day brings me great joy. We argue but at the end of the day we tell eachother I love you. Thank you for sharing
Dagmar thank you for your lovely comments. Sadly not every mother is a good one but you have despite the conflicts between you and yours become the wonderful mother to your own children. Love and best wishes Milly x
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-
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.
