My mother told me…

Wash your hands and your knees

Dry your hair

listen to me

.

I love you

I love you

I love you

.

Finish your meal

Say please

Hold my hand, don’t squeal

.

I love you

I love you

I love you

.

 

 


This poem is inspired by the Go Dog Go Cafe word prompt “My mother told me…”. I thought about how as a child you only hear certain words your mother says. Then as you grow older you come to realize that these words were hidden reminders of how much you are loved. Photo by Tanaphong Toochinda on Unsplash.
