Mother’s Day in Guatemala is celebrated on May 10. But they way I see it, every day is the perfect day to honor mom.
I wish I could write a nice poem and stop being so aleatory
and I wish I had the gift of verse so that could write a better story,
but to talk about you means I need to go on forever
and I only managed to put some lines together
This is my effort to make the best rhyme
But I think I have managed to make these lines sublime.
As every word comes from deep within my heart
and I hope one day I will get good in this kind of art.
Before I begin I want to express how grateful I am
To be the daughter of such graceful madam.
Your eyes always say “don’t worry, I care”
And you sweet smile tell me “I am always there”.
I hope I am not wandering astray
but there are two poems I bring you today
so, without any further delay
let me start what I am here to say.
You are the one who sang me songs and read me stories that gave me a spark.
You are the one who keeps the candle lit if I start to tremble in the dark.
You are the one who picks up the fallen leaves that my autumn left.
You are the one who clears my cloud of doubts when I am bereft.
You are the one who transcribes my nonsense worries into laughter
And I am the one whom with love you have always look after.
My Pale Moon
Pale, beautiful and delicate like a Lily’s white
But sturdy and flawless as a diamond with bright
The world is beautify with your presence
having you near is an angelical blessing
Still, these things are not sufficient
That is why I am choosing something omniscient
Like a mystical pale moon, this is how you appear before my eyes,
I tell you from my heart, it is not just a simple appraise.
loving and faithful and of loveliest hue
these are only some of the things that I see in you
Timeless, admirable wisdom and grace
There is nothing of you that I wish to erase
You know how the moonlight breaks upon the city’s dome
and fall along cemented steel and stones?
a simple spark changes the lugubrious monotone
of the grayness that being afar invades my home.
that is why joy end excitement sit next to me when I get your call
And you appear int he screen of the iPad like a blue dress doll.
More than that, you are my pale silver moon that tucks me at night
the one who conforts and inpires me with its bright moonlight.
The kind of light that can only come from the sky
and it comes down to my cheek gliding with its graceful fly
so at that moment I close my eyes and I iamgine I am a star
cause I know it is you who I see in the moon from afar.
Before I finish I need to say
than I admire without dismay
and not only for today
I wish you a happy Mother’s day
I hope you enjoyed my poems.
Above anything else, I treasure my mother.
And everyday passing day I kneel down and be thankful to have her with me.
I love you mom!
