A Rose for Mother
by Cleo M. Shoffstall

Another Mother's Day is here,
Bringing joy and pleasures new,
On this special day, Mother dear,
I want to remember you.

I cannot give you costly gifts,
And I've told you this before,
No matter what I give to you,
You give back much, much more.

I'm giving you a pure, sweet rose,
Gathered in the early morn,
This rose you planted in my heart,
The day that I was born.

In kindly, loving thoughts of you,
And with the faith you still impart,
The rose I give to you today,
Is the love that's in my heart.

You are truly a gift from God above,
Only He could've made you with that much love

Good morning again Myrl. This is lovely: words and flowers. I miss my Mother a lot even though she is gone for many, many years.

Sheila Anderson - It's been many years since my mother passed as well.  My dad in 1966, and my mom in 1975.

What a wonderful poem, Myrl. Thanks for sharing it. It's been 21 years since I got to celebrate a Mother's Day with my mother and this day is always somewhat bittersweet for me. I miss her. Happy Mother's Day to you.

I understand that bittersweetness, Nina.  My mom has been gone  44 years.
