#NaPoWriMo 2016 Challenge – Day 2


Day 2’s Challenge via NaPoWriMo Website was to write a poem about a Family Portrait



A captured moment
Rare and never to be seen again
Evidence, that we were once bonded…

Off to the “Annual Ekka Show
As a family unit
Who seemed happy and carefree…

It appears in black n white,
That those bonds formed
Should remain strong forever…

But sadly overtime
Cracks shattered those foundations
Leaving a Mothers’ heart broken…

Words on Mothers Day…

Ode to my Mom
My mom is my light and soul
My guide and my best friend
And as the years go by …the closer we become.
Everything in her nature is to only care.
Her heart is so selfless and pure.
Putting us all ahead of her own needs and wants.
She would give her last cent to help someone.
She is a treasure of the rarest kind.
I wish I could give her all that she deserves…
I love her more than words can say
Forever and Always; Near or Far –
I know she will always be with me…

“Celtic Symbol of Motherhood”
Mom your one of the best people I have ever known…
Don’t know where I would be without you in my life.
Thank-you for all that you are and do…
And Mothers Day to me is everyday for you!

Words on my Son…

My Beautiful Baby Boy:
I am in awe and wonder
Of this new creation sent.
Little fingers, toes and heartbeats –
A treasured gift that was truly meant.
As you wake and stare at me
My heart does stop in time…
Within this precious moment
I realise that you are forever mine…
Sent from up above
My miracle
My love for all time!
