Mother's Day 2020 On Lockdown

All of us have mothers and today is their day
When children and spouses with great affection display
Gifts of flowers, candies, dinners, jewelry and all manner of delight
So precious that a mother’s love would make any suffering or pain alright
Today with America mostly still in shutdown mode
The gifts from retail are hard to in the car pack and then unload
The restaurants are closed with only take out signs
Can this be a day from honoring a mother to resign?
No a mother’s love is absolute and not dependent on gifts
The pandemic closing of stores and restaurants should not cause our love for her to drift
Flowers wilt, dinners fade, jewelry in a drawer stays
But a daily call of love never goes away
To mothers on this day where a virus seeks to intrude
Gifts are nice but not needed to prove our love for you mood
