This card brings love and wishes most sincere
And you may think words are cheap, I fear
But I've included an invisible slice of niceness

To My Lovely Mother,

You've loved me from the start
You care with all your heart
You're a friend on whom I always will depend
You share my every dream
And you add to my esteem
Your love, and mine for you, will never end

From Your Loving Daughter
Have a wondrously Happy Mother’s Day

Here's an amusing limerick version of the poem at the top of the page

Words, they say, are cheap I fear
But this card brings wishes so sincere
I've included a slice of niceness
And all my love, and now it's priceless

And priceless is, like you, very dear!

Did you see what I did there?

Have a wonderful day, Mama

Mothers Day Verses Poems Quotes

This Mother's Day greeting comes to one

Who has given me love and care

A mother, the best mother, my mother

A mother beyond compare

Have a lovely day (Mum)(Mom)

Jon Bratton 2013

This one should be used discerningly as a Mother's Day poem

A Mother Adored

Taken for granted
By baby, but adored
Disdained by teenager
Who considers her flawed
By courting (son)(daughter)
Largely ignored
Then, when grandchild is born
Help from her is implored
She lives all her life
Never seeking reward
Some love gets returned
But somewhat see-sawed
Then death comes along
And on the (crem)(parlor) floor

Expressed in flowers
The “adore” is restored
What a pity it's not seen A bit more in between!

Mum, this Mother's Day card
Comes to your door
In an inadequate attempt
To "restore the adore"

Mothers Day Verses Poems Quotes

(Mom)(Mum), today have fun
May you have a marvelously merry

Jon Bratton © 2013

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 Mother's Day

 Mothers Day Verses Poems Quotes
  © V4C

There shouldn't need to be a special day

To thank a Mother for all she’s done

From the moment of her child’s conception

Until the setting of her sun

(Mum)(Mom) you’ve always been there for me, 

and in every which way

So just know I love and appreciate you

More than words can say


With love and heartfelt thanks on Mother's Day

And look upon my problems as your own.

You share my every dream and add to my esteem.

You help me and do favors, big and small.

You care with all your heart and you've loved me from the start

Mother, you're my dearest friend of all.

Have a wonderful Mother's Day

My life without you Mom
Would not have been the same;
You've given me all I have

You've protected and adored me
Stood by me through thick and thin;
My love for you stretches to the moon
Yes, and all the way back again!

Mom where would I be without you

As even now Dad still can't cook;

He's got lousy taste in clothes

Just how do you think I'd look?

You chose him well though

You have a good taste in men;

So Thank You for my childhood

I'd do it all again!

So Thank You Mom I cannot tell

In words just how I feel;

But today I want to say to you

I love you and always will!

Mothers Day Verses Poems Quotes

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.

Author: Helen Steiner Rice

 © V4C

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!

 Mothers Day Verses Poems Quotes
 © V4C

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

  © V4C

Author: Edgar Allan Poe
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.

 © V4C

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.

 Mothers Day Verses Poems Quotes
 © V4C

Mother, you taught me religion .
"You better pray that will come out of the sheet."
And time travel.
“I'm going to knock you into the middle of next week!"

"Put your sweater on; I know you’re cold?"
That’s when you taught me ESP.
And humor, "If the lawn mower slices off your toes,
Don't come running to me."

You taught me logic
" Because I said so, that's what’s for"
And "If you fall out of that swing and break your neck,
You’re not going to the store"

You taught me about the science of osmosis.
"Shut your mouth and eat your tea"

When you said “You’re nothing but a son of a bitch”

That’s when I taught you... irony

Coz if I’m a son of a bitch

What does that make you?

The best mother ever put on this Earth

Who I love very much...that’s who!

Have a wonderful Mother’s Day

Mother, your heart is like a garden
With the gate open wide,
And everyone may enter,
Finding peace and love inside.
And from my childhood, Mother,
My joys have had their start
In that place of truth and beauty
The garden of your heart.

The Little Things
by Katherine Nelson Davis and me

It is the little things that count
And give a mother pleasure -
The things her children bring to her
Which they so richly treasure...

A mother can see beauty
In the very smallest thing
For there's a little bit of heaven
In a small child's offering.

That was written by a mother
Who doesn’t do like you
Tell all my friends the size and shape
Of the poos I used to do... the swimming pool

Never mind Mother I love you anyway
Happy Mother’s Day

Oh for a love that shrinketh not

Yet abounds without move'

These next two poems are on the same theme

God made a wonderful Mother
A Mother who doesn't grow old.
He made her a smile of sunshine,
And a 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.

© V4C

When God was making Mothers
As far as I can see
He put a special effort into one
And saved that just for me.

He made the perfect women
Compassionate and kind
With more patience and affection
Than you could hope to find.

He gave this lovely lady
A heart of solid gold
And after God had finished
He must have broke the mold.

Most of us are guilty of not saying
Enough to those we love the best
We just hope our feelings are understood.
Though not oft expressed

That’s why it’s so important
That Mother’s Day exists to say
How very much that you're loved
Each and every day

Guilty as charged
I love you Mum
Happy Mother's Day

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.

With all my love on Happy Mother's Day

Just to bring back the time,
That was so sweet to me,
Just to bring back the days,
When I sat on her knee.

I pray every night to our Father above,
For that wonderful mother of mine.

That wonderful mother of mine.

There are treasures on earth,
That made life seem worthwhile,
But there's none can compare
To my mother's smile.

There are times when only a Mother's love can understand our tears,
And soothe our disappointments and calm away our fears.
There are times when only a Mother's love can share the joy we feel,
When something we have dreamed about suddenly is real.

And inspire in us, the confidence we need from day to day.

You were fashioned by the Angels and sent from God above
With love on Mother's Day

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

I love you with a "Special Love"
That deepens every year.

Mothers Day
by Ruby Brocklehurst

Mother Poems

mothers day is special
we love them very much
they take us out for dinner
and love us all as such

they make us laugh
and fill us with fun
they look after us
there's none like a mum

bring them flowers
love them too
as they will always love you back
and will never hate you

they are always busy
but always there
sitting by the fire
in the rocking chair

but your the best one of all
and i will always love you
knowing the love is true
and mothers like you are few

Mother Poems

I love you mum.
I never feel upset or nervous when you're next to me.
You have been showing me the right way in my life.
I love the way you give me advice or courage.
I am very lucky that I had a mother like you.
However how much I paid I would never ever get a mum like you.
I hope you will be next to me for ever.

Mothers Day Verses Poems Quotes

Mothers Day Poem
by leigh osbon
(hillingdon middlesex)

I got on this website to write something other than the normal . best wishes, good luck, congratulations as they are already in the card. I have on occasions wrote poems and the ones I have wrote are normally for someone who has died, which is a bit sad but cannot find any other way to express my feelings at the time.
Although I did write one for my mother on mothers days, due that she has supported me through my mid life crises. So this is it


There's no one in the world like
In addition, no one loves me as you do.

I am older now but still a child and need you
Each and everyday.
Therefore, I need to further say
With you here, life's not so bad,
You make me happy when I am sad.

Without you I cannot
You always help and give me
I take a bit of you each day
You always help me find my way.

Sometimes, I know I cannot see in front of me
and do not like reality.
I call you up and your words give me sight to carry
On and make things right.

I want to give you peace each day but sorry that it's not true,
I always seem to rely on you.
I know you worry, I should grow up, I know I should!
But then your cuddles would not feel as good.
For in your arms when I'm feeling sore.
Nothing makes me happy more

It's then I'm safe from inside wars
Just knowing I am special -I am a child of
An Angel is what you are!
I'm glad you're here and not too Far.

I love you mum more than words can say
Together we travel all the way.
Happy Mothers Day

Mothers Day Verses Poems Quotes

Poem for Mothers Day by Richard Barnard
(Norfolk, England) Always there for us

A Mum is just Special
She’s One Of A Kind,
She loves all her children
And always will find
Time for a cuddle
And always a hug,
A comforting word,
Or even a mug
Of hot steaming tea,
Or sometimes a letter
To keep up to date
And make you feel better.

Mothers Day Poem for Sister by Brenda
(England) I wrote it for a mothers day card for my sisters, but it can easily be used for different occasions.


"S" is for sister
how special you are,
"I" is for individual,
you shine out by far,
"S" is for supportive,
for that's what you've been,
"T" is for the tears shed,
from what you've seen,
"E" is for ever,
in our hearts you'll always be,
"R" is remembered,
forever by me.

(Washington State) Mom, It's hard to believe you are seventy. When I look at you I see a beautiful woman, both inside and out. I see someone who is willing to change, refusing to get stuck in a time warp. You are the "light" Mom. Way to keep it plugged in. We love you

A Mothers love - Decision Taken by Vera Harrison
(County Durham UK) My daughter asked me to make a card for her to send to her best friend as she had the unenviable task to have her Mother looked after in a Nursing home as she has to have 24-7 care and could not do the job herself. This had broken her heart but nothing on the Net came close to the words I wanted to have in the verse.

A Mother's Love's unending
And it goes the other way
The huge decision you've had to make
Has been truly hard today.

This had to be, for all concerned
I know it was extremely hard,
Take strength & courage in my words to you.
Please dont feel so bad.

I'm sure your choice was for the best
for your Mother needs this care,
You've been the Best Daughter/Son you could have been
(NAME) you were always there.

Mothers Day Verses Poems Quotes

A Wonderful Mother Poem
by Jak
(Los Angeles, USA) This poem about a Mother works for Mother's Day, Birthday or, sadly, a Funeral poem. Only a final bit, which you can add, separates them

When God was making Mothers,
As far as I can see,
He spent a lot of time on one,
And saved that one for me.  

He made a perfect woman,
Compassionate and kind,
With more patience and affection,
Than you could hope to find.
He gave this lovely lady,
A heart of solid gold,
And after God had finished,
He must have broke the mold (mould)
