Stargazer Lily

dedicated to my mom


Going through a world of pain 
Didn't stop you from 
Giving me a world of love


I wish I could place the world 
In your hands so everyone 
Could see what I see 
Like a passport with all the stamps 
To show the miles your heart 
Has traveled

my fav lines, "Like a passport with all the stamps
To show the miles your heart". Hope she liked it.

The second stanza is the most beautiful love poem to a mother. She sounds like a very special lady :)

Robert Gibson said...

Short - but sooooo AWESOME.... the beauty is in how much love is squeezed into such a small package. Beautiful!

I knew this was for your mom. Quite the Valentine, sweet Anthony. Did I get one from my sons? No, but from the grandchildren. Not as sweet as this. Tell her hi! from me. Loved it. G.

Beautiful! You made us see what you see.

Anthony, what a beautiful, heartfelt tribute to your mother. Our mothers give us so much more than the gift of life... they give us dreams, stories, and treasures of the heart. Glad this came on Valentine's Day! Amy

I really love this. Beautiful write for your mom.

hedgewitch said...

That lily is one of the most beautiful I know--upward facing, luminous purply pink and so fragrant it's like the air of another world--what a lovely comparison to your mother that, and indeed the whole poem is.

Marbles in My Pocket said...

Awesome poem, Anthony. A beautiful sentiment, very well expressed!

Beautiful- so simple- almost understated- but says everything that needs to be said. I love how poetry doesn't have to be stanza after stanza to pack a real powerful punch- an emotional punch- and this did just that.

Gorgeous! So simple and pure. A beautiful brush stroke rendered by a fine artist on a small canvas. This one touched deep in my soul.
