Time for Bed

newborn-1328454_960_720

Your eyes are feeling heavy

It’s clear to me you’re sleepy

Your movements are now slowing down

And no matter how hard you try that smile seems to turn upside down

As you try to deny that urge to sleep,  the body sends signals to your head and feet

“You’ve worked hard all day

We can’t afford another minute of play

We demand you turn in for the day.”

Finally, without further delay

You distribute your hugs and kisses

Then you’re on your way

No more excuses.

“Good night everyone, until another day.”

 

It’s time to take my own advice. Have a good night all. Thank you for stopping by.  🙂

 

Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day

One special day each year

Designated to mothers everywhere

For us to show how much we care

…………………………………………………………..

It’s for those mothers that go above and beyond

And won’t stop until the job is done

Those mothers who take their responsibilities seriously

Executing their roles to the best of their abilities

……………………………………………………………

It’s for those mothers who didn’t birth us

But did a great job in raising us

Embracing us like their own flesh and blood

Making us feel safe and loved

………………………………………………………………..

It’s for those mothers that are longer with us

They are never forgotten

Because their legacy lives on in us

We’ll always be grateful for all they’ve done for us

…………………………………………………………………………..

Maybe even for those mothers

For one reason or another, were not the best mothers

Some of you may wonder, why even bother?

But what if their only purpose was to birth us?

Those people who love us

Are thankful she fulfilled her purpose

……………………………………………………………….

We represent their contributions to this world

I’m not saying to forget but to merely reflect

Because without them we would not be here

And although I’m not telling you what to do

You must admit that much is true

……………………………………………………………………..

So on Mother’s Day

Whatever you choose to do

To appreciate or remember the woman

Who birth, raised and or nurtured you

 Be grateful for their contributions big and small

Because without mothers

The earth would just be a big empty ball
