My first published book Margaret’s Story - a biography of my mother in verse is available on Amazon.

This is Shrikrut kuraware from India. And I gifted the one to my Father on Father’s day . Please have a look .
Father is a person ,who builds up our character.
Keeping calm in adverse situations is his X-factor.
He nourishes us with good qualities without any discouragement .
Even after various loses he supports us with his support & encouragement.
Even if he scolds us, his scolding teaches us a lesson.
The one who guides us a right path ” Father” is that only person.
It’s just like if the son is in need ,father is indeed .
Under his supervision only , you’ll lead.
And hence he must be our priority .
Because under his supervision only , we can achieve prosperity .
Lastly , he is the only one who hides his tensions ,ignores his comfort & happiness just to make us happy.
So ,don’t hurt that gentle Father .
Great, I like it. We usually celebrate Father’s Day in June though, coincidentally around the date of my birthday. I wanted this to be about mothers in tribute to my mother Margaret.
Please have a look on my poetry . You’re gonna love it for sure.
Liked the father one, will try to look at some others. Where are you from?
Send me a link where I can find your work… couldn’t make the one in your message work.
In response to your request to send
you our best Mother’s Day poems to publish in your blog,
I am sending you this special poem that, unfortunately, I did not
quite finish revising/editing in time to publish last year. However ,
I am honoring you by permitting you to publish it on my behalf.
This will explain why it does not appear on my profile. I do intend to
include it in my profile just prior to Canadian Mother’s Day for this
I LOVE YOU, MOM
My son phoned earlier today
To wish me a Happy Mother’s Day
Since he lives so very far away
And cannot visit during May.*
Would he say what I hoped to hear?
Or would I have to wait until next year?
My heart pounded with uncertainty, with fear.
From my cheek I dabbed a tear.
I recalled my first Mother’s Day
When I closely observed his play.
It really was such a special day
Watching him in his crib where he lay.
I wondered if he would ever say
The words I wanted to hear today:
“Mother, I love you,”
Even though I know it’s true.
I’m sure he does in his own way
But doesn’t bring himself to say.
However, instead, what he said was:
“Mother, I phoned you simply because
Tomorrow it will be Mother’s Day.”
I almost blurted out, “You don’t say.”

A/N I dedicate this poem to all sons of loving mothers.
Please, oh please, tell them the words they want to hear:
“ I LOVE YOU, MOM.”
*Mother’s Day in Canada is the second Sunday in May.
Hi Gail – so lovely to have you visit here and a really touching poem. I’m honoured and grateful. Thank you.
