Mothers’ Day

leave a comment »

The best Mothers’ Day gifts I ever received were:

A sticky hug

A slobbery kiss

Burnt toast and a cup of coffee

A construction paper card

Covered in glitter

And “mummy” scribbled in it.

A fistful of dandelions

A pot of pink tulips

A nap in the afternoon

A walk to the park

For a swing and a slide

A sweet song

A mischievous giggle

A loud laugh

Then peace and quiet

The words “I love you.”

Whispered before bed.
