Yellow the color of sunshine and candle light
glows today as the celebration color
for all the Mothers in our lives.
Like the sun Mothers shine warmth through our days
and they cover us with love.
When candle light flickers its golden glow,
it sings of home and welcoming company.
It is our Mothers that open the door into that glow
and set its flickers dancing in our everyday world.
I want to honor each of you who were Mothers
in my life.
You carry pieces of the joy that my Mother
gave me so freely.
She is gone but you continue to shine
a Mother’s light into all the corners of my world.
