My Mother


My mother is a funny gal,
She's smart and full of wit.
So I thought i'd write about her
Just a little bit.

She wakes at the crack of dawn,
Each and every day.
'The sun is up so i am up'
Is what i'd hear her say!

She loves things neat and tidy,
She's got a touch of ocd.
I'd miss like half a show
Whilst she's dusting the tv.

Horror movies are her favourite,
She'll take coffee over tea.
Except on a Friday nights,
It's a wee vodka that you'll see.

Oh she loves a bit of shopping,
And buying gifts aswell.
She's kind and full of stories,
Oh the crackers she does tell.

She tells me she's just minding me,
That i'm from outerspace.
My real mom's just fixing her spaceship,
Haha, how she puts a smile on my face.

Full of jokes and full of heart,
And a little bonkers too.
I'm never surprised to come home
And find the house decorated new.

And hey she's tough also you know,
This woman will stand her ground.
She'd go to the end of the earth,
To keep her loved ones safe and sound.

Her first name is Catherine,
But everyone calls her Dale.
One thing that i'm sure of is
She's an extraordinary female.

She does things thought impossible,
She never fails to amaze me.
A single mom of three girls,
My sisters both agree.

She raised us all and by herself,
Janice, Marlene and me.
Always and forever,
Our world, mother hen will be.

And a little extra verse or two,
Just so that she knows
Mama, girl I love you,
And every day, that love just grows.

For all of my rollercoaster life,
You have been my strong backbone.
Thankyou for every single thing
And never leaving me alone.

              Enjoyed every line of your ode to your mom. Now I know where you got your good looks from! And the way you describe her, there seems to be quite a bit of her inside you as well. You are one lucky person, and the fact you wrote this poem shows me you know that. Hat's off to your mom!!!
