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.
