Mother Daughter Poem

A mother's words of love to her daughter

Precious Gift

© Sherri Lawrence
When times seem too hard to bear and I feel like giving up
I vision your beautiful face, the twinkle of your eyes and things of such
The bond we created from my womb to the day you were born
Is a mother and daughter bond that can never be torn
With the strength and guidance of God and the blessings he pours down from above
I want to be the best mom I can be to you and embrace you with all my love
You are as precious as a flower and as gorgeous as a rose
You have been specially made to the very tip of your nose
You are as sweet as honey; such an innocent young child
You are brighter than any star in the sky every time you smile
I want you to be proud of who you are and strive to be the best
Put forth your efforts to achieve your goals and let God do the rest
I will always be your mother first, but I'm also your friend
You are the most precious gift, that I've ever been given

With All My Love,

  • This story is amazing, I have this amazing connection with my girl, now 4 years old, when she was 15 months old, her father drowned her, she was on life support, in a coma, she was the town story, everyone knew she wasn't going to make it, somehow survived it, she's as normal as any other 4 year old to this day, but I thank god everyday, letting me give my little angel the life she deserves, I am the proudest mother in this world!!, I will never let her go. We're best friends!

  • My daughter is the meaning of love to me. She is there to take me through the darkest moments. She reminds me of why I am here. I asked for her at Church 19 years ago! I was blessed and she is my life. She has helped me through some sad moments in my life and is giving me strength to get through my illness and until my last breath, my last tear, I will love her until eternity. She has learned everything that I wanted her to and much more, she has shown me strength and she is so talented and I know that I have done the right thing. She is now ready in my heart. She has used her heart and her soul and touched mine and now she will be ready for her road ahead. I love her more than life and she will always be with me in my heart as my mother is in mine!!!

  • I have lost so many babies, just to have one special daughter in my life is a miracle. Your poem really says what I feel and I don't think I could have relayed my message to her any better. I posted it on Facebook today as my status with credit to you, as today is my daughter's birthday. Thank you.

  • I love this poem! It speaks from my heart! My daughter has been my rock. My mom passed away when I was 8 months pregnant with her. She has gotten me through the toughest times. Her smile lights up my heart everyday. Her laughter is the best medicine in the world. The bond I have with her is incredible. My children are the reason for everything I do. My daughter is attached to my hip - and I cherish every minute of it!

  • From the day that I found out I was pregnant I always asked God for a baby girl. Being pregnant was so wonderful. I felt like my life could not be any better. I was so wrong, the day I held my beautiful daughter in my arms was like being in heaven. Nothing ever felt so good. We grew and played together ever day. My daughter was perfect in my eyes. She was kind, loving, giving, and my best friend. Thank you God for my wonderful blessing. I know she was hand picked by you right out of Heaven. Please help me be the mother my beautiful daughter deserves. I can't thank you enough,
