Happy Valentine’s Day!

I just got married this past weekend so I’m still trying to get back into the swing of things. I’ll be back soon.

A Valentine for My Mother

Upon the hour in which you’ve gone
I sit and cry until the breaking dawn

Memories of your life overflow within
Anger and sadness, sometime turn to sin

The curls you wore, as a child
Grew out, moved down, into a smile

You taught me love, you comforted pain
If I needed saving, you’d open a vein

I smile when thinking of your daily calls
How I wish I had them during my falls

Now you look down at me, full of bliss
When I close my eyes, I still feel your kiss
My favorite Valentine, who I dearly miss

Chocolates and Memories,


  1. What a sweet Valentine poem for your mother. Looking forward to seeing a wedding picture or two as well ;)

  2. Congrats on the wedding and stuffs.

  3. Bea - first of all congratulations on your wedding -- I'm sending you warm thoughts and blessings on your celebration of love.

    Also, thank you for sharing such a beautiful love poem for your Mom. Sounds like you were very close to her with such a great love. It's wonderful!

    I'd like to hear more about your eelationship with her. I'm sorting through some feelings with my love for my mother and the relationship we had. I'm working on preparing a story on "letting go" to submit from a request from another blogger.

    Take care and I'm so happy for you and your beloved!

    1. Thank you, Pat. I appreciate it.

      I was the closest I've ever been to my mother the last few years of her life. We had our fights and we had our own thoughts on life, but throw my own growing and through my mother's, we had a strong mother/daughter bond at the end.

  4. Congrats on your wedding! I really enjoyed reading this lovely tribute to your mother. I miss mine so much. We left too much unsaid.

    1. Thank you, Belva.

      I sometimes feel the same with my mother. Like I should have said certain things to her. I'd like to think out mothers already know how we felt and still feel.

  5. many congratulations on your wedding! And a lovely peice of poetry for Valentines... Ah - I'm feeling all mushy now!!

  6. Oh my goodness! You got married! The last time I was here you said you were done with blogging, so I have a lot to catch up on.

    What a lovely poem for your mom. The bond you always mention when you reminisce about your relationship with her is sweet. "If I needed saving, you'd open a vein." (that part made me teary-eyed.) I'm pleased to see you're still writing poetry. I hope writing this particular poem brought you closer to her in that ethereal way that only poetry can do. Hugs! And happy belated Valentine's Day, but more importantly, CONGRATULATIONS on your marriage!

    1. Long time no see, my friend. Yes, I was going through difficult times and thought I'd be giving up blogging. I wasn't away long, knowing writing and blogging are important.

      I wrote this poem last year some time when I was thinking about my mother. She always gave me something little on Valentine's Day saying that I was her Valentine.

      Thanks again and glad to see you back.
