WARMTH OF MY LIFE
by Anishka, 9, QLD
I know you do the washing up every night.
And clean up all my mess.
You always make us happy,
And still find time to stress.
Thank you for your hugs,
And teaching me how to keep in touch
Even though I never thanked you
I love you very much.
You are so hardworking
Today it’s your special day
We’ll give you whatever you want
On the twelfth of glorious May
I’ll answer all your work emails
And order 50 pizzas from the pizza store
Because I know you like them
I also know you like little cute boars.
You’re the one special mother
Who gets all these gifts from me
Because I am thankful
I might make you some tea.
The tulips in our garden
Do not grow without sunlight
You are their sunshine,
Without you it would be always night.
The honey in the bees’ hive
Wouldn’t be there without you,
For you, gave them loads of flowers
And a nice sunny area too.
You might be a university student,
Or work for a company of book covers
But there is something you will always be
My happy, loving mother.
One more word for you mum,
There goes another Mother’s day
But remember one thing
I will always love you in every way.
