Mothers Day Poems

but, first...

I've been writing verses
For 60 years...phew!
And d'yer know why I did it?
T'was especially for you

Jon Bratton

Welcome to the Mothers Day poems page for a mother's son or daughter or in-law 
When I was a baby, you rocked me to sleep,
As a clumsy child, you showed me how to land
And then when I approached adulthood
You offered a sure, guiding hand

For all of your thoughtfulness, all of your love,
Your patience and gentleness, too,
I'm grateful for the sure guiding light
My sweet, lovely mother...that was you!

Dreams come when the moon does shine
Of that wonderful mother of mine
The thoughts bring back the time to me
When I sat on my Mother's knee
There are things that make life worthwhile
But none compared to my mother's smile
You'll hold a part, always, of my heart
Dear Mother of mine.

With Love On Mother's Day

We only have One Mum (Mom),
One Mummy (Mommy),
One Mother in this World, 
One life. 
Don't wait for the Tomorrow's 
To tell Mum (Mom), you love her
To the world you might just be one person, 
but to one person, this person you might just be the world.

While we honour 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.

You're the sunshine to light my day.

Mother's Day Poem #7

As I look back on my life
I find myself wondering...
Did I remember to thank you
for all that you have done for me? 

For all of the times you were by my side
to help me celebrate my successes
and accept my defeats? 

Or for teaching me the value of hard work,
good judgement, courage, and honesty? 

I wonder if I've ever thanked you
for the simple things...
The laughter, smiles, and quiet times we've shared? 

If I have forgotten to express my gratitude
For any of these things,
I am thanking you now...
and I am hoping that you've known all along,
how very much you are loved and appreciated.

Mother's Day Poems.. #8

For all the times you gently picked me up,
When I fell down,
For all the times you tied my shoes
And tucked me into bed,
Or needed something
But put me first instead.

For everything we shared,
The dreams, the laughter,
And the tears,
I love you with a "Special Love"
That deepens every year. 

Happy Mother's Day

Mother's Day Poems.. #9

You've given me two things
One is roots
The other's wings


You've shown me to keep well grounded
And yet still try
To raise my game
And reach for the sky

Mothers Day Poems.. #10

God made a wonderful mother
A mother who never grows old
He made her smile of sunshine,
And her heart of pure gold,
In her cheeks he placed fair roses,
In her eyes, stars that shine
God made a wonderful mother,
And that wonderful mother is mine

Happy Mother's Day

Mother's Day Poems item #11

You held my hand, for part of my life
But you'll hold my heart...
A mother is a friend on whom you can depend,
She makes you feel you are never alone.
She has a very special way of cheering up a day,
And looks upon your problems as her own..

She shares your every dream and adds to your esteem.
She helps you and does favours, big and small.
She cares with all her heart she`s loved you from the start
A mother is the dearest friend of all.

Mother's Day Poems item #13

Now that it's Mother's Day
I really have to say
Thank you Mum (Mom) (Mam) for all you do 
In your quiet efficient way

I don't know how I'd cope
Without you by my side
I know that life would be
A very bumpy ride

As the seasons come and go
And Mothering Sunday arrives
It takes this occasion
To make me realize

I do not take the time to say
I appreciate all you do
So a very Happy Mother's Day, Mum (Mom) (Mam)
And lots of love to you

Mothers Day Poem #14

As a child you walked before me, 
To lead by example. 
As a teenager you walked behind me
Looking out for my back and being there when I needed you.

As an adult you walk beside me
So that, as two friends, we can enjoy life together..

Happy Mothers' Day, Mum

Mothers Day Poems item #15

There are times when only a Mother's love
Can understand our tears,
Can soothe our disappoints
And calm all of our fears. 

There are times when only a Mother's love
Can share the joy we feel
When something we've dreamed about
Quite suddenly is real. 

There are times when only a Mother's faith
Can help us on life's way
And inspire in us the confidence
We need from day to day. 

For a Mother's heart and a Mother's faith
And a Mother's steadfast love
Were fashioned by the Angels
And sent from God above.

Mother Day Poem #16

If I could give you diamonds
for each tear you cried for me.
if I could give you sapphires
for each truth you’ve helped me see.
If I could give you rubies
for the heartache that you’ve known
If I could give you pearls
for the wisdom that you’ve shown. 

Then you’ll have a treasure, mother,
that would mount up to the skies
That would almost match
the sparkle in your kind and loving eyes. 

But I have no pearls, no diamonds,
As I’m sure you’re well aware
So I’ll give you gifts more precious
My devotion, love and care.

Happy Mother's Day

Mothers Day Poems item #17

A mother can be any size ...or age,
But won't admit to being over thirty.
A mother has soft hands and smells good.
And doesn't like the kids being dirty

Nor having her children sick,
Nor bad report cards nor muddy feet, 
Nor temper tantrums, nor loud noise 
Nor kids that aren't neat.

A mother likes new dresses and a clean house
Especially the loo,
She likes her children's kisses, an automatic washer 
Oh, and Dad, I suppose, too

A mother can bake good cakes and desserts
But spends a lot in the vegetable aisle
A mother can kiss sad little faces 
And make them smile.

A mother is underpaid, 
Does long hours and gets very little rest. 
She worries too much about her children
And wants, for them, the best 

She is the guardian angel of the family
The queen bee, 
The tender caring hand .
And is loved, very much..
... by me

Happy Mothers' Day, Mum (Mom)
(from son, daughter)

Mothers Day Poems #18

This special Mother's Day wish 
That comes with love to you 
Brings warm and heartfelt thanks 
For all the thoughtful things you do-- 
It also comes to let you know 
You mean more to me (us) each day 
To everyone your lives have touched 
In such a loving way. 
Happy Mother's Day, Mum (Mom)
With Love

Mother's Day Poems #19

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!

Mothers Day Poems #20

When it comes to Mothers
There's lots of them about
But you're the very very best
Of that, there is no doubt

Mother's Day Poems #21
(of the ilk found on Mothers Day Poems from Kids)

Nothing compares with being a mother…
…who else can be bugged,
… tugged
…and hugged…
all at the same time? 

Happy Bugging, Tugging, Hugging Day

Mother's Day Poems item #22

Thousands of stars in the night sky,
And shells on the shore together,
Hundreds of birds that go singing by,
Especially in sunny weather. 

Millions of dewdrops to greet the dawn,
Thousands of leaves in the fall,
Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn,
But only one mother, that's all.

Happy Mothers' Day
To the One and Only

The happiest days of my life
Were spent in the arms of another man's wife
Thanks, Mum, for everything

Mother's Day Poem to Mother-in-Law #24

To the other Mother I received
The day I wed your son
And I'd really like to thank you
For the loving things you've done 

You've given me a gracious man
With whom to share my life
You're his lovely Mother
I'm his lucky wife

This card comes from both of us
( Jack )says he couldn't love you more
And I say thank you Mum
You're a terrific Mother-in-Law. 

from Son-in-Law, Daughter-in-Law

Mother's Day Poem #25

Mother's Day Poems #26

Who ran to help me when I fell,
And would some pretty story tell
Or kiss the place and make it well,

My Mother 

Mothers Day Poems item #27

A mother is not a person to lean on,
But a person to make leaning unnecessary.

Mother's Day Poems item #28

Mum 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 Mummy 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 be my lifelong friend
and Precious Mother.

Mother's Day Poems item #29

A Mother's love is something
that no one can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away...
It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking...
It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems...
It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation...
A many splendour-ed miracle
man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God's tender guiding hand.

Mothers Day Poems item #30

Happy Mother's Day means much more
Than have a happy day.
Within those words lie lots of things
We never get to say. 

It means, of course, we love you,
Then thanks for all you’ve done and do.
It means you mean the World to us,
And that we love and honor you. 

But most of all, I guess it means
That we are thinking of…
Your happiness on this, your day,
With pleasure and with love.

Happy Mother’s Day

Mothers Day Poems item #31

Because I feel that in the heavens above
The angels, whispering one to another,
Can find among their burning terms of love,
None so devotional as that of "Mother,"
Therefore, by that dear name I have long called you,
You who are more than a Mother to me.

Author: Edgar Allan Poe

Mothers Day Poems item #32

The magic of a mother’s love
Brings harmony and bliss.
It covers like a blanket
And cures boo-boos with a kiss.

It offers grand protection
From evil that lurks ‘round,
It tames the fears of little ones
And turns frowns upside down.

It holds a wealth of wisdom
With gentleness it guides,
It holds the hand when needed
Then lets go with tears of pride.

And though those precious childhood years
In an instant pass,
The love and magic mom instills
Will last…and last…and last.

 Item 33

Mother's Day.. a time for warm thoughts 
And fond memories, not just in your head
But expressing the feelings and words 
Not leaving them unsaid,
A time for letting those special people 
In our lives know
That they are loved and appreciated 
And it will always be so

There, I've said it, (Mum)(Mom)
But I think it on the other 364 days of the year

© V4C

**Here's another with the same theme Item 34**  

Why do we always say the least
To those we love the best?
And hope our thoughts are understood.
Although they're unexpressed 
That's why it means so very much,
When Mother's Day is here
To say how very much you're loved
Each day throughout the year.

Happy Mother's Day

Thank you, Mom, for your patience, encouragement
Strength, generosity, comfort and response to my cry
And for those immortal words of explanation to any question
"Because I said so, that's why!" 

And this Mother's Day card arrives at your door
Because I love you, 
That's the why and what for
