Because You're My Mom

© Linda Arlene Fassett
Because you are my mom you loved me before I was ever seen
You thanked God for this miracle, this little human being
So exciting, yet fragile it all must have seemed to you then
Hearing my little heart beat inside you, now life begins

Because you are my mom no pain was too great for you to bear
Now you're a mother and I your child with joys and pains to share
And so into this world my life began each breath now on my own
One day we will look back at just how much I've grown

Because you are my mom you worried for me within your every bone
You finally let go of my little hand to take my first steps on my own

Because you are my mom you showed me through the years
To care about others and their feelings and the things that they hold dear

Because you are my mom you taught me right from wrong
Understanding that my faith in God will forever keep me strong
Showing me that being my own person is the only tool I'll need
When morals and values are your foundation to succeed

Because you are my mom you loved me enough to also be my friend
You would be right there in ways that no one could see or ever comprehend
When there was no way I thought you could ever understand
There you would be, non-judging and willing to lend a hand

Because you are my mom, God's gift to me was you
As your daughter I will always love you and promise to be true
I thank you for so many things and will try to never make you sad or blue

Because you are my mom, and one-day I will be a mother too
I pray I never forget all that you've been through
I am your daughter and in your image I am proud to be
By the grace of the Lord you were created, and then I came to be

  • I'm sitting in studyhall looking for a Mother's Day poem and I came along to this one. This poem has really touched me because I've lived with my mom all my life and my Dad doesn't want much to do with me. My mom is a single mother raising me and four brothers. I try to understand her situation and she tries to understand mine. We help each other everyday. I'm thankful to God I have a wonderful mom like her that cares for me, and works hard to raise all of us. Thank you for posting this poem it was truly amazing.

  • I am sitting here at my house thinking of all the things my mother has gone through in her life and I wanted to make something worth it to her...This poem has really touched me because my mom and dad got divorced and my dad doesn't want to be near us anymore and he doesn't want us ever to talk to him. My mom is a single mother raising me and my younger 11 year old brother. She tried sooo hard to get us what we need but its hard for her. I try to help her through it but it is really hard. I want her to feel like she is loved soo thank you for posting this poem...it made me cry when I first read it...I was reading it while listening to my moms favorite song...Thank you soo much...

  • This is so touching. as I sit here just thinking of my mother while she is at work I come across this poem. My mom has been through so much and she is still there for me whatever happens. All I have seen her go through and come out on top to the women she is today, makes me proud to be her daughter. One day I do want to grow up and be the mother she is today. I LOVE YOU MOM!!

  • My mom and I were always so close and one day I got older, we separated and I guess I really just didn't realize it. My mom everytime I did something wrong would make a remark about how we aren't the same anymore, and I try not to hurt her and I shared more with her, like my first kiss and losing friends and she appreciated it, I guess just letting your mom in on your life is all that matters to them besides your love.
    my mom is my hero though, my dad left when I was in third grade and she raised my brother and I all by herself until we were old enough to move out, it seemed like we were living pay check to pay check but she always tried to do as much as she could and give us what we wanted. I now have a daughter of my own and I feel what she feels, all I hope is that my daughter will let me in on her life, so I can give advice and never let anything hurt her.

  • This is such a sweet poem, I got teary eyed reading it. Such beautiful words spoken there. I love my mother to death and I can't wait to read her this poem. :D I have never read such beauty!!! This poem touched my heart because my mother has went through hell her whole life, worrying about everything, having to deal with me and my siblings argue. My father always causing problems, having to provide for her children. Makes me finally open my eyes to notice that our mothers are God's strongest things on earth, they go through so much, and yet in the end they are still standing there with their heads held high!!! I love you mom.

  • I was looking for something to put in a card for my mum. I found this, and it is perfect! My mum is the one who helps me with everything; from making art projects colorful to those hard days when all you can do is cry.
