Mother’s Day – Author A.M. Torres


Mother, please don’t cry
Today it’s Mother’s Day,
Today we honor you
But, I hear what you say.
You thank me, as you cry,
I don’t understand;
You missed me all year long;
I’ll see you when I can.
How often I said that

And, I meant every word
But time had slipped away
I barely even called.
Today on Mother’s Day,
I made sure to come
Though it’s for one day;
Let’s just make it fun.
Mother, I didn’t think
I kept this day in mind,
For a special day
A visit can be kind.
Yes it’s very nice,

You appreciate the thought,
But a visit for one day;
Is simply not enough.
