Mother's day poem for my Mom

Dear Mom, I tried to find a poem, a song, or even a quote to express how I feel about you on Mother’s day.

 I had no luck finding the right one, so I have decided to write one, a poem, or speech to find the right words to tell you I love you. 

However, there is so much more I feel that I could say, on this day of days. 

Mom you did so much for me, you helped to shape me in to the woman that I have become to be, with your style, grace and love, the good Lord up above has truly blessed me. 

You mother of mine, you are truly one of a kind, yes kind, gentle and caring, and truly knowledgeable and wise. 

You have been there for all my ups and downs, smiles and frowns, yes mom if I had one I would give you a crown, because you are a queen to me. 

 I still feel there are so many more things to say and things that words can’t express, but know that I truly love you cause you are the best!!!!

Love you Mom, Happy Mother’s day !!!

-          Your daughter  Aminah

I just turned 25 and right now I am reflecting.
I am reflecting on where I have been and where I want to go. 
I am reflecting on the things that,
I have done and the things I want to do.

 I have changed my mind many times.
Times that I have tried to figure out what, 
what is it that I want to do? 
Where, where is it that I want to go? 
The answer is the same, I don't really know. 

I want to be this and I want to go there,
I want to be right and I want to be fair. 
I want to help people,
all people just the same maybe I don't even need to know their names.
What do you call that, what does it mean? 

So right now I am reflecting on,
who I was and who I want to be come.
There are so many things to be and so many things to become. 
All I need is one, one place to go, one thing to do, 
one thing to be; but what that is I don't really know. 

I know that I could do this or I could do that, 
I could be this or I could be that.
If I could do it all then I would be just fine.
On the other hand it is said that you,
can't have your cake and eat it too. 

So I ask you: What am I to do?
Am I to be this or that, but you cant answer that and you can't answer this. 
I just turned 25 and right now I am reflecting, 
because right now I don't really know.
 I don't really know, but one day I will. 
One day I will!!!

Many seasons come and go...

Many seasons come and go but autumn is the one I can’t let go,
also known as fall,
when the leaves change their color and fall,
fall to the ground and hardly make a sound,
walking through the woods  you see reds, oranges, golds and browns.

You feel a chill in the air as the breeze passes you by,
you notice the hay and cornstalks in the corner of your eye,
this scene is beautiful, its classic its fall at its best.

As the sun sets and the temperature drops, food, fun, and friends is your next stop,
at a local cafĂ©  where inside feels  cozy and warm where the cold is at bay
where the menu is covered in fall eats, drinks, desserts and specialty sweets.

I’ll start with something hot like chocolate or apple cider with a hint of cinnamon,
with a side of Maple or pumpkin cheesecake to finish my order,
at last sitting and laughing with friends,
it’s not quite the same as spring and summer and nothing like winter
many seasons come and go but autumn is the one I can’t let go.
