The Gift You Are

I see the gift you are
in unexpected moments
when wonder plays across your face
when your eyes sparkle
with excited delight
and blush your cheeks.

I see the gift you are
when a song becomes a time machine
and transports your heart
to moments of steamy daydreams
far away from dinner pleas
and makeitbetter kisses.

I see the gift you are
when he takes your hand
pulls you close to whisper;
when you shift closer to his side
and your heart soars
without the need to land.

I see the gift you are
when I look in the mirror
and see your spunk
smiling though
the light brown eyes
you passed down to me.

 

Happy Birthday Mom, I hope you have a great one!

    What a beautiful tribute to your mom. I like especially the last stanza, when you look in the mirror and you see qualities of your mom looking back at you!

    I initially thought it was a poem written for a child but i loved the way it ended. It’s such a lovely tribute to a mother. Yes, a mother is the best gift our creators have ever given us. I love the way you see her everywhere.
