What do you see # 100 – A Roundup


20th September, 1967 was the day I lost my mother. 54 years ago! So in honor of that date I chose an image of a mother and daughter.


My mom would have been the perfect paradigm of my ideal

Had she lived long enough for me to know her as an adult

Her life finished when she was just twenty-six years old

I never got the chance to develop memories of her as a person

Life for her was short and her journey ended where for others, it begins

Her thoughts slide into my mind often and needless to say that

I miss the motherly touch, the words of wisdom that she might have

Imparted to me, had she been alive when I became old enough to value

The love and devotion only a mother can give to her child each and every day

Today and every day, I salute the mothers, who with selfless love give their children

All the confidence they need to face this world and to stand strong on their own

I wrote this poem in May, 2019. It expresses my feelings so well.

It was the 100th prompt this week and I want to express my gratitude for all the support I have been given here in WP. Please click on these amazing entries by our wonderful community.

  3. I am so glad you did get to know your Mother. I was about three when my mother died too young. I’ve had step mothers who have filled that role, some better than others. I’m sure they did the best they could under challenging circumstances. I still keep my maternal mother’s memory alive. I make sure both my children and grands know of those who came before.

    Thank you for continuing to post ‘What Do You See?” – 100 is a wonderful number to achieve! πŸ’•
