~The Penny~

 I received a penny
For Mothers Day
It's not like any other
I would have to say

It's a special penny
With a heart carved out
It reminds me every day
How much I am cared about

I carry my penny
Everywhere I go
I clutch it in my hand
When I am feeling low

For as you see
My three children
Gave it  to me
This very special penny

You may think that
 I am being silly
To me it was better
Than getting something frilly

I will cherish my penny
To my dying day
I am very sentimental
What more can I say

Author's Notes:

My children really did give me a penny
One year for Mothers Day

I think you are not being silly at all. This penny represents so much love. Little gifts offered with love are much more valuable than some expensive presents. Very nice poem.
Best wishes to you and your children,

Strange how the silly things children give us mean so much,
my little girl gave me a bunch of weeds with the odd buttercup thrown in last night,because i had a headache( there are in the kitchen window)
nice poem

It may be only a penny but it is priceless.
