  1. My mother told me
    that dreams are not made of the strong resolutions
    and hard-hitting goals
    but is nurtured by the soft hands with the filigree touch
    which keep them warm in the cold winter nights
    and gives them sustenance in the scorching summer days

    My mother told me
    that getting hardened by the atrocities of life
    will not take you nearer to the goal
    but smoothening and softening our rough edges
    a kind smile
    and a gentle look will glide you towards your goal.

    My mother told me
    that there are enough who can reach the destination
    and can have loft goals and desires in life
    but the one who does it with humility and with kindness
    is the one
    you should really adore.

  4. My Mother Said

    She said a million things
    A few still resonate with me
    Visions of love, compassion and grace
    Reflecting through the smile on her face
    She didn’t have to love me
    She didn’t have to raise me
    She didn’t have to pick me
    But she did
    Adoption is everything to me
    It is how I am still able to chase my dreams

    A woman of such incredible beauty
    Her kindness shines through the memories
    While she is gone, she is still here
    Dementia has stolen her memory
    But occasionally she comes back to me
    The last time she did
    My mother told me how much she has missed me, how proud she is of me and how much she loves
    Those are the moments I cherish
    For one day soon
    It will be all that I will have to hold on to.

    xoxo

  7. my mother told me you can’t hurry love. she was impressionable and had heard the song. she said i’d just have to wait. love don’t come easy. it’s a game of give and take. then she’d walk away humming the tune.

    only thing is, this is a small town. people talk. you can’t hurry love but you can’t slow down a baby from showing. mama has always wanted me to wear her wedding dress when the time comes. if she don’t want a bump stretching the fabric, the time has come.

  8. Well it’s not Tuesday but reading all these beautiful entries made my morning and prompted me to think about the challenge myself. I will share only a few lines because I know I am past the deadline 😬

    My mother told me to keep up the curiosity
    Learning stops when you are dead
    So be alive and well 💜

  9. Here is my little poem……

    I Do Thee Shine

    When I was little and young.
    “Your heart will always shine” Said Mum.
    When I grew up, a know-all teenager.
    Head strong, and an all-night rager.
    “Your love of life will shine through” Said Dad.
    Later on, I married, so happy and glad.
    Suddenly, one spring, MS touched her bad.
    The shining dulled and time turned sad.
    Dad said, “Your heart shone through”.
    And Mum said, “Her Star will always shine on you”.
    My Star, my Dad and Mum, you are my spine.
    For you, I do thee shine.

  10. Where The Lost Children Go

    My mother told me that
    my sister has gone to Never Never Land.
    It’s where the lost children go,
    those who don’t find their way home
    and those who fade away and die
    like the wild flowers I pick for the house.
    My mother told me that
    they stay children for ever
    and can play all day long.
    It sounds like fun there
    but my mother says
    she will never let me go.
    She told me the children there will grow wings
    and become angels.
    I think that when my sister gets her wings
    she will fly back home.
    My mother says no.
