Carpe Diem (Rispetto)

cold out, wind blowing, leaves dancing in the street

white snow, flakes drifting, new season coming in

rain drops, flowers blooming, roses smell so sweet

sun shines, kids playing, as longer days begin

hours lapse, day’s changing, teasing of tomorrow

look back, at your life, no regret, no sorrow

choose now, live instead, anything can happen

act like, life’s ending, do now what you would then

Mother-Son Love

Photo by Pixabay on

So thankful for videos and photographs

And the simple things that make mothers rejoice

Her baby boy gurgles whenever she laughs

Always livens up at the sound of her voice

His excitement shows just how much he misses

Her cuddles, as she leans in for sweet kisses

She knew his love was so unconditional

Unlike his dad’s, which was only seasonal
