Mother dear I love you so
Each day I'll love you more
But words alone cannot explain
The love I feel right now

To have a mother that thinks of me
The way you always do
Is better far than anything
That earth could offer you

Now that just leave us heaven
Which is where your surely from
And heaven would be hard pressed I'm sure
For you to be outdone


Written for my mother on Mothers Day in 1971.

Daniel Lloyd Kennedy

You are one dear soul, Sir Dan! Mothers really are from heaven. Your mom sure would say to you, 'Dan you are still that hopelessly romantic boy!' just kidding. But I love this piece, completing my particular views of you through your writings.

Dan's Mother
Dan, you have such a tender soul, and it always shows through your words. This piece in particular tugs at my heart strings. My mom means more to me than words could ever say. I've tried several times to write a poem about her, and find it the most difficult subject to write about because she is so close to my heart. But you did beautifully my friend. Your mother, I'm sure is very proud indeed.
