Giving in to the clichéd on Mother's Day

Ahem, it's for the many ways I haven't said "I love you"
Oh, I know, it goes without saying, or even doing, when
T-shirts, circulars and greeting cards all proclaim it for me in
Achingly florid fonts, dripping with pastel sentiment, but
Each year this day brings with it an advertisement-teased doubt.
Erring on the side of their callow self-promotion, I’ll give you this. I love you.

With a special "I love you" dedicated to my mom Marina, and all the women out there who make this world a more welcome place for the rest of us.
