Happy Mother's Day Poems

Mother's Love
Mother's Love
Her love is like
an island in life's ocean,
vast and wide
A peaceful, quiet shelter
From the wind, the rain, the tide.
'Tis bound on the north by Hope,
By Patience on the West,
By tender Counsel on the South
And on the East by Rest.
Above it like a beacon light
Shine Faith, and Truth, and Prayer;
And thro' the changing scenes of life
I find a haven there.
~ Unknown
You filled my heart with joy
You filled my heart with joy,
And you filled my life with love.
You taught me how to love.
You taught me not to give up,

You taught me words of wisdom,
And attend to my every need.

You filled my world with laughter,
And you brightened up my world.
You're the best Mom.


Mother's Day Poems


Only One Mother
Hundreds of stars in the pretty sky, Hundreds of shells on the shore together, Hundreds of birds that go singing by, Hundreds of lambs in the sunny weather. Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn, Hundreds of bees in the purple clover, Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn, But only one mother the world wide over.
~ Unknown
You've seen me laugh
Youve seen me laugh,
Youve seen me cry,
And always you were there,
By my side.

You were there for the ups,
And you stayed for the downs,
You gave me many smiles,
And chased away my frowns.

And through it all,
You were always there,
making sure I knew,
How much you care.

Im your little girl,
And youre my mother,
And no matter what,
Id want no other.
Happy Mothers Day, mom!


Mother's Day Poems


A Mother just like you
I just want to let you know
you mean the world to me,
Only a heart as dear as yours
would give so unselfishly.

The many things you've done
all the times that you were there,
help me know deep down inside
how much you really care.

Even thought I might not say
I appreciate all you do
richly blessed is how I feel
Having a mother just like you
~ Unknown

Dear Mom
Dear Mom...
Since the day I was small
Till the day I became tall
Since I began understanding things
Till the day I got my own wings
Your love, has never fallen short
You have been my only support
I want to hold you tight and hug you
I just want to say Thank you

God's Masterpiece is Mother
God took pieces of everything wonderful to make moms.

God took the fragrance of a flower...
The majesty of a tree...
The gentleness of morning dew...
The calm of a quiet sea...
The beauty of the twilight hour...
The soul of a starry night...
The laughter of a rippling brook...
The grace of a bird in flight...
Then God fashioned from these things
A creation like no other,
And when his masterpiece was through
He called it simply Mother.
Herbert Farnham


Mother's Day Poems


Mother & Daughter
Its a special bond that spans
the years through laughter, worry,
smiles and tears.
A sense of trust that can't be broken.
A death of love sometimes unspoken,
A lifelong friendship build on sharing,
hugs and kisses, warmth and caring,
Mother & Daughter their hearts as one.
A link that can never be undone.
~ Unknown
For all the times you've been there
For all the times you've been there
from the day I was born.
You've always gave me courage to do as I perform.
You call to say hello
you send me notes to say you care
and when we are together
a special moment is shared.
For the many things you've done
for all the times you were there.
Helps me to know deep down
how much you really care.
Even though I might not say it.
I really appreciate all you do
So powerfully blessed is now I feel
for having a mother like you.
~ Unknown


Mother's Day Poems


You Filled My Days
You filled my days with rainbow lights,
Fairy tales and sweet dream nights,
A kiss to wipe away my tears,
Gingerbread to ease my fears.
You gave the gift of life to me
And with love you set me free.
I thank you for the tender care,
For deep warm hugs and being there.
I hope that when you think of me
A part of you you'll always see.
A Mother's Love
There is no love, like a mother's love,
no stronger bond on earth...
like the precious bond that comes from God,
to a mother, when she gives birth.
A mother's love is forever strong,
never changing for all time...
and when her children need her most,
a mother's love will shine.
God bless these special mothers,
God bless them every one...
for all the tears and heartache,
and for the special work they've done.
When her days on earth are over,
a mother's love lives on...
through many generations,
with God's blessings on each one.
Be thankful for our mothers,
for they love with a higher love...
from the power God has given,
and the strength from up above.


Mother's Day Poems

You have given me life
You have given me life and showered me the light.
Taught the strength of fight, and difference of wrong from right.

When there are problems,
you always stay and pick me up along the way.
Show your support come what may,
do everything to make it fade away.

May you have a Happy Mother's Day!
I'll always be proud to say,
you are the best of the most,
and the top of the rest.

Mother's Day Poems

A Mother...
When you're a child she walks before you,
To set an example.
When you're a teenager she walks behind you
To be there should you need her.
When you're an adult she walks beside you
So that as two friends you can enjoy life together..

Thank You Mom
I know how often I took you for granted
when I was growing up.
I always assumed you'd be there
when I needed you...
and you always were.
But I never really thought about what that meant
till I got older and began to realize
how often your time and energy were devoted to me.
so now, for all the times I didn't say it before,
thank you, Mom...I love you so very much!

Your Mother Is Always With You
Your Mother Is Always With You...
Your mother is always with you...
She's the whisper of the leaves
as you walk down the street.
She's the smell of bleach
in your freshly laundered socks.
She's the cool hand on your brow
when you're not well.
Your mother lives inside your laughter.
She's crystallized in every tear drop.
She's the place you came from,
your first home...
She's the map you follow
with every step that you take.
She's your first love
and your first heart break...
and nothing on earth can separate you.
Not time, Not space...
Not even death...
will ever separate you
from your mother...
You carry her inside of you...

Mother's Day Poems

My Mother Kept A Garden
My Mother kept a garden,
a garden of the heart,
She planted all the good things
that gave my life it's start.
She turned me to the sunshine
and encouraged me to dream,
Fostering and nurturing
the seeds of self-esteem...
And when the winds and rain came,
she protected me enough-
But not too much because she knew
I'd need to stand up strong and tough.
Her constant good example
always taught me right from wrong-
Markers for my pathway
that will last a lifetime long.
I am my Mother's garden.
I am her legacy-
And I hope today she feels the love
reflected back from me

Mother's Day Poems


Walk with me, Mama
Walk along side me, mama and hold my little hand.
I have so many things to learn
That I don't yet understand.

Teach me things to keep me safe
From the dangers everyday.
Show me how to do my best
At home, at school, at play.

Every child need a gentle hand
To guide them as they grow.
So walk alongside me, mama.
We have along way to go.
And Grandma's too...
While we honor all our mothers
with words of love and praise.
While we tell about their goodness
and their kind and loving ways.
We should also think of Grandma,
she's a mother too, you see....
For she mothered my dear mother
as my mother mothers me.

A wonderful Mother
God made a wonderful mother,
A mother who never grows old.

He made her smile of life sunshine,
And He moulded her heart of pure gold,

In her eyes he placed bright shining stars,
In her cheeks, fair roses you see.

God made that wonderful mother,
And he gave that dear mother to me.

Mom You always
Mom You always clean the fingerprints I leave upon the wall,
I seem to make a mess of things because I am so small.
The years will pass so quickly Ill soon be grown like you
and all my little fingerprints will surely fade from view.
So heres a special fingerprint. A memory that is true.
So youll recall the very day I made it just for you!

A Precious Mother
Mom You've given me so much,
Love from your heart and the warmth of your touch.
The gift of life and you're a friend to me.
We have a very Special Bond which only comes from God...
I'm sure you agree.

As a child I would say Mommy I Love You,
Now you're my Mother so dear
I love you even more with each and every new year.

If I could had chosen, I would have picked no other.
Than for you ... to be my lifelong friend and Precious Mother.

Mother o Mine
If I were hanged on the highest hill,
Mother o mine, O mother o mine
I know whose love would follow me still,
Mother o mine, O mother o mine!

If I were drowned in the deepest sea,
Mother o mine, O mother o mine
I know whose tears would come down to me,
Mother o mine, O mother o mine!

If I were damned of body and soul,
I know whose prayers would make me whole,
Mother o mine, 0 mother o mine!

Rudyard Kipling (1891)
Nature the Gentlest Mother is
Nature the Gentlest Mother is,
Impatient of no Child
The feeblest or the waywardest
Her Admonition mild

In Forest and the Hill
By Traveller be heard
Restraining Rampant Squirrel
Or too impetuous Bird

How fair Her Conversation
A Summer Afternoon
Her Household Her Assembly
And when the Sun go down

Her Voice among the Aisles
Incite the timid prayer
Of the minutest Cricket
The most unworthy Flower

When all the Children sleep
She turns as long away
As will suffice to light Her lamps
Then bending from the Sky

With infinite Affection
And infiniter Care
Her Golden finger on Her lip
Wills Silence Everywhere

Emily Dickinson
Dear Mom
Dear Mom, I said a prayer for you
to thank the Lord above
For blessing me with a lifetime
of your tenderhearted love.

I thanked God for the caring
you've shown me through the years,
For the closeness we've enjoyed
in time of laughter and of tears.

And so, I thank you from the heart
for all you've done for me
And I bless the Lord for giving me
the best mother there could be

A Mother
A Mother is one who
understands the things
you say and do

Who always overlooks
your faults and sees the
best in you

A Mother is one whose
special love inspires you
day by day.

Who fills your heart with
gladness in her warm
and thoughtful way.

A Mother is all these things
and more - the greatest
treasure known.

And the dearest Mother in
all of the world is the one I
call my own.

A Mother's Day Poem
Another Mother's Day is here,
Bringing joy and pleasures new,
On this special day, Mother dear,
I want to remember you

I cannot give you costly gifts,
And I've told you this before,
No matter what I give to you,
You give back much, much more

I'm giving you a pure, sweet rose,
Gathered in the early morn,
This rose you planted in my heart,
The day that I was born

In kindly, loving thoughts of you,
And with the faith you still impart,
The rose I give to you today,
Is the love that's in my heart
By Anonymous


Mother Earth
Mother of all the high-strung poets and singers departed,
Mother of all the grass that weaves over their graves the glory of the field,
Mother of all the manifold forms of life, deep-bosomed, patient, impassive,
Silent brooder and nurse of lyrical joys and sorrows!
Out of thee, yea, surely out of the fertile depth below thy breast,
Issued in some strange way, thou lying motionless, voiceless,
All these songs of nature, rhythmical, passionate, yearning,
Coming in music from earth, but not unto earth returning.

Dust are the blood-red hearts that beat in time to these measures,
Thou hast taken them back to thyself, secretly, irresistibly
Drawing the crimson currents of life down, down, down
Deep into thy bosom again, as a river is lost in the sand.
But the souls of the singers have entered into the songs that revealed them,
Passionate songs, immortal songs of joy and grief and love and longing:
Floating from heart to heart of thy children, they echo above thee:
Do they not utter thy heart, the voices of those that love thee?

Long hadst thou lain like a queen transformed by some old enchantment
Into an alien shape, mysterious, beautiful, speechless,
Knowing not who thou wert, till the touch of thy Lord and Lover
Working within thee awakened the man-child to breathe thy secret.
All of thy flowers and birds and forests and flowing waters
Are but enchanted forms to embody the life of the spirit;
Thou thyself, earth-mother, in mountain and meadow and ocean,
Holdest the poem of God, eternal thought and emotion.
Henry Van Dyke (from The White Bees , 1909)
