Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day in the UK
Is on the fourth Sunday of Lent
A day when earlier Christians
To their ‘Mother’ church went

Visiting their ‘Mother’ church
Where they grew up, long ago
A place of ‘Home’ to worship
Their thankfulness to bestow

And now Mother’s Day
Has developed to become
A day to visit home
And appreciate, Mum

Honouring our Mothers
For all they have done
Throughout the years
For their daughter or son

If not able to visit
Maybe send a little gift
Along with a loving card
Will always give a lift

For many the day will be
Tinged with thoughts, so sad
But Mother’s Love is eternal
And more likely felt when glad

Our Mother will always be
A large part of our heart
Here, or on the other side
Love unites, to never be apart

Trina Graves – 29th March 2019


About This Poem

Tomorrow (31st March) will be Mother’s Day in the UK.  My last post, You Were There, was the poem I wrote for my Mother last year, and as this Mother’s Day was fast approaching, I was beginning to wonder what I could write this time, as I didn’t have any ideas. But then, as has happened many times before, I was writing an answer to a comment from Amira (on that previous post) and the idea for this poem was born!

I didn’t have time to write a poem at that moment, so I quickly made a note. While I was doing this, a line from the song ‘Angel’ by Sarah Mclachlan came into my head, but slightly changed: ‘In the arms of AN angel’ and I instantly knew this was the title and theme of another poem for Mother’s Day.  I will add this one next.
