MY MOTHER by Dale Tiernan

My Mother loves to garden,
she also loves to sew,
she's starting making quilts
she doesn't like to mow
My Mother likes to scrapbook
she likes to make cards too
My Mother loves her crafting
Just like I do
mum you mean the world to me
if you could only see
how much you mean to me
I love to make you smile
even just for a while
your favourite roses are red
well that what you said
now get up you sleepy head
come enjoy your breakfast in bed
happy mothers day mum
and many more to come
by Melody Rainbow

Poem (For my Mother-in-law)

If I had a thousand wishes
I’d send them all to you
For I am very grateful for everything you do.

You have always been there for us
with help and ready advice
its been like having a guardian following us through life.

So on this special day we send you warmest thoughts,
of how much we all care for you
for all the joy you have brought.

by Jane Howden 

For Mum ~

Words will never be enough
to express everything you mean to me.
Your beautiful personality is admired and appreciated by everyone whose lives you touch, 
and you continue to be  
~ Patient
~ Kind
~ Generous
~ Gracious  
And everything I aspire to be.

by Karen Brierley

 Poem for My Mum
 My dearest Mum watching from above
 Always cherished, always a love
 Always missed, remembered for kind
 Always with me, always on my mind
 You were special, unique & sweet
 Years pass, time goes, til again we meet.
 by Debi Clark  
So now I am a mum
never sitting on my bum
Putting things away
Is it really already May
The things you say are funny
that's right we're out of honey
You love your 2 black poodles
Hang on I have to turn off the noodles
Not as much time to scrap
And forget about that arvo nap
I love you so very much my boy
You are a delight, my love, my joy
by Melissa O'Neill
