This Mother's Day, give your mum the gift of poetry to show her your love.

Dear Mother


Often think and care for me,

Teach me as I was immature,

Hold my hand and protect me,

Encourage me when I’m somber…

Right now, it’s time for me to pay back.

Your smile is as bright as daisies,

Your eyes are filled with hope

Your hugs make me cozy,

And your promises never break.

You are the angel,

Kind and nice.

I promise you,

Not to be naughty,

Always your honey,

And you no need to worry.

I will always listen to you

And be your best daughter.

It seems hard to say,

But it’s actually easy

To say this to you

On this special

Mother’s Day

“Mum, I love you!”
