Slow Down Mummy!!

Sometimes you read beautiful lines which not only makes your reminisce the best days of our growing years, but also appreciate what you have been blessed with – Mom!the_new_face_of___ And the following poem is a reminder to her…I wish I could have told her when I was growing up.

Slow down mummy, there is no need to rush,
Slow down mummy, what is all the  fuss?
Slow down mummy, make yourself a cup tea.
Slow down mummy, come spend some time with me.

Slow down mummy, let’s pull boots on for a walk,
Let’s kick at piles of leaves, and smile and laugh and talk.
Slow down mummy, you look ever so tired,
Come sit and snuggle under the duvet, and rest with me a while.

Slow down mummy, those dirty dishes can wait,
Slow down mummy, let’s have some fun – bake a cake!
Slow down mummy, I know you work a lot,
But sometimes mummy, it’s nice when you just stop.

Sit with us a minute,
And listen to our day,
Spend a cherished moment,
Because our childhood won’t stay!

As a daughter who is staying miles away from her..I would want to express similar feelings (by replacing few words) therefore Rebekah, with due respect to your beautiful poem, I want to remind myself and all the daughters in the world:

Slow down daughter, there is no need to rush,
Slow down daughter, what is all the  fuss?
Slow down daughter, make yourself a cup tea.
Slow down daughter, go spend some time with your mother.

Slow down daughter, let’s pull boots on for a walk,
Let’s kick at piles of leaves, and smile and laugh and talk.
Slow down daughter, you look ever so tired,
Come sit and snuggle under the duvet, and rest with your mother for a while.

Slow down daughter, those work emails can wait,
Slow down daughter, let’s have some fun – bake a cake with your mother!
Slow down daughter, I know you work a lot,
But sometimes daughter, it’s nice when you just have a long call with your mother.

Sit with your mother a minute,
And listen to her day,
Spend a cherished moment,
Because these days won’t stay!

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom…

and to all the wonderful mothers in the world!!
