Community member Michael Holloway had the honor of reading his poem on Mother’s Day at Hillyer Memorial Christian Church, and he’d like to share it with you also.
Mother’s Day That Special Occasion
by Michael Holloway
Mother’s Day is a special occasion
On which all mothers can receive their due.
That day becomes a celebration
Happy because of what they knew.
Each generation is taught love,
Returning to home within the heart,
Offering to the young
Passion to be whole by being part.
To you then goes the day,
Hard earned through much sacrifice,
All learned by your wisdom,
Yet there is no amount or price.
Even in the grip of grace
Alive with love the odds you face
Reaching through your joys towards paradise.
