Flowers, cards, balloons and bears,
The season’s here again,
That one day, an annual event,
Celebrating the trip down motherhood lane.
Let’s remember and thank,
Not just our status quo of motherhood,
But everyone, who helps to nurture the child.
The mothers, step moms who take on the role,
Foster mums who care as if their own.
Nans that help us to bake,
The surrogates that grew bumps of love,
Eggs donated to families now grown.
The women who were like mothers to us,
The confidant, the carer, the teacher and such.
Dads who play both mum and dad,
The strong, the quiet, the resilient care givers.
Let’s take a moment to think of those too,
Who once were a expecting, or have an angel taken too soon.
The women out there hoping that the next Mother’s day is theirs,
For the gift of holding a child they want to share.
To all of you, wherever you are,
There’s no one path to this role, nor no right one to take,
It doesn’t matter how you got it,
What your title is,
Thank you for nurturing, caring, and believing,
On this Mother’s day.
