No Mother's Day card this year
by Kevin East
Mine is no longer here
Heaven is now her abode
And i can't remember the post code
No chocs tagged with last minute thoughts
Or life saving flowers from Garage forecourts
So Mother's Day is cancelled then
Bar the odd million or even ten.
So washers of dishes and breakfast maker
And kids who with trays at 6am wake her
Never forget days with her are so dear
So far away when she once was so near.
Yet she came in my dream
Still wore that red coat
With a glass of Emva Cream and a handwritten note
It said ''Son, don't be sad, now i have no fear.
It's my best Mother's Day, love
Wish you were here.
