A Poem for My Mom and Me

If You and I…

Words from a daughter to her mother.

If you and I were a book,  we would be a best-seller.

If you and I were a song, it would be at the top of the charts.

If you and I were the wind, we would travel the world together.

If you and I were a flower, we would have the sweetest scent.

If you and I were a bird,  our song would be fit for Kings and Queens.

If  you and I were the ocean, it’s depths could not hold all our love.

If you and I were a waterfall, our joy would forever cascade over the rocks.

If you and I were a letter, it would be the best love letter ever.

If you and I were cats, we would curl up together and take lots of cat naps.

If you and I were a cup of tea, it would just hit the spot.

If you and I were the rain, we would be relief from the drought.

If you and I were a house, we would be a sanctuary, safe from the world.

If you and I were a fire, we would burn bright and fierce, not destroying but bringing warmth and comfort.

If you and I were a ship,  our anchor would survive the worst of storms.

If you and I were a tree, our roots would be deep and strong.

If you and I were a clock, we would mark time together making the best of every moment.

If you and I were a chair, we would be the most comfy rocker-recliner ever.

If you and I were a painting, we would be priceless and hanging in the best art gallery in the world.

If you and I were a coat, we would always be toasty and warm even in the bitter storms that come.

If you and I were a phone, we would have the best lifelong conversation.

If you and I were a heart, we would beat in perfect rhythm together forever.

If you and I were a mirror, it would forever reflect our love.

If you and I were mother and daughter, we would be the most blessed ever…

…and we are!!
