Are you one of those people who cringe at the thought of writing sappy things in your Mother's Day card? Rest assured, you're not alone. This year try honoring Mom with a sweet and funny poem. She'll know you still love and appreciate her even without the cheesy sentiment; plus, she'll be grateful for a good laugh.
Here are some of our favorites:
For the Mom Who Does Everything (from Squidoo)
Mom, I know you do the dishes
And I know you cook the food
I know you scrub down all the floors
Even when you're in a bad mood.
And every night you walk the dog
While I'm watching all my shows
On Thursday's you take out the trash
And every spring you wash the windows.
Mom, I know you're sad I'll go someday
And leave you all alone
But right now I'm only 35
So what other place could I call home?
For the Mom Who Has Everything (from Yahoo)
Mum, I know I owe you the world
And you deserve no less
But circumstances have unfurled;
I'm in a financial mess.
For Your Mother's Day party
I write for you this ditty.
My poetry skills are hearty
And cheap, but oh so witty!
