Mother's Day  

Mother's Day

I'm not sure if I have lost control of my mind?
Or if I've left my youth behind
Mother's day is not something I remember
My brain is akin to a burning ember.
In my youth every day was mother's day
She was in charge and had her way
She always produced an element of fear
She would scoff at her day being once a year
She was "Mum" and loved by her children
This Mother's day theme is quite bewildering
I know that time marches on but let's face it
I've gone through the past and just can't trace it.
We all loved Mum most every day
And we didn't need a Mothering Sunday
But that was then and this is now
So all young children should make a vow
Love and appreciate your lovely Mum
She will always remain your very best chum.

Rod Broomham.

It's nice to appreciate your mum on Mother's Day but it has become such a cash grab for the florists and retailers. There seems to be too many "nonsense days" out there for my empty wallet. Just let the people in your life know how much they mean to you throughout the year.

While I do not get on with my mother in any way or form I can understand this. Personally I do not understand"mother's day, father's day or even valentine's day. The need for some special day to show and/or tell some one how you feel is pointless when really you should be doing it every day if you can. While there is humour here the message is a serious one and one I can mostly agree with. Thanks for sharing

Yes, you can.
In our day it was called "Mothering Sunday!" Nice little piece. Good read Rod. I've enjoyed my 'Mother's Day' Flowers cards and good company. Hope you enjoy 'Father's day when it comes!

This started after I had seen so many money-making Mothers' day bits and pieces. Mothering Sunday was religious when I was a kid and then Mothers' Day took over! That's progress I suppose. Not sure when fathers' Day is but I will be grateful for any amount of whiskey that appears by my bed,  no religious connection there. Take care Kitty,    Rod.

Mothers day seems to be one of the biggest and most important days of the year in many ways, and in many places. It's good that mothers are appreciated, but as you mention in your poem, it's good to always appreciate and value a mum or mother all year round. Nice write, well written, and good that it comes in relation to your own experience. A highly enjoyable read.

I just feel that Mothers' Day has become a money-making business for many. It was a religious event when I was a kid but time changes and we have to take it I suppose. It was Great Grannies Day here so I should appreciate whatever title is used. Thanks for your review Take care    Rod.
