Haiku- A Mother's Gift

Haiku Friday

You're truly a gift
The shine in your eyes, your hugs
And in your bright smile

You're truly a gift
"The best little girl I know
In the whole wide world"

A blooming flower
Starting off small, innocent
You emerged slowly

Dandelion fire
Strong and proud, bright as the sun
Nothing can stop you

Watching you mature
Watching you find your footing
Blooming beautiful

Through your eyes I see
A love that's never ending
Love, so pure, so real

My heart bursts for you
The joy, immeasurable
Finding your own way

And with a small wind
One day, you'll fly to the world
Truly, you're my gift

No matter how far
Curiosity takes you
I'm always here, love

Here to protect you
From the elements of life
Always your mother

With many layers
my love grows as you emerge
beautiful flower

As you continue
this amazing journey, life
Know I'm always here

You've given me hope
You've helped me to love again
You're truly my gift

Finally a day
I can enjoy Mother's Day
You're truly my gift!

I love you my Fa
I thank you for being you
Thank you for this gift.
