    Mother's Day provides us with the perfect opportunity something unique and personal to give to our dear matriarchs. We don't have to write masterpieces but taking the time to pen something ourselves will elicit joy and thankfulness in the hearts of the women who suffered so horrendously to give us life.

    Include personal memories. As this is an annual day, it is likely that you'll want to focus on events that have happened during the past year. But if there has been a very momentous period in your life, good or bad, then perhaps you'll want to reference that, and the role your mother has played.

    What poetic style or meter to use? In poems such as this, like love poems, it is common for a certain meter or set of rhyming couplets to be used in order to give the poem levity and musicality. Try rhyming lines two at a time to give the poem more rhythm.
