13 Missing Mom On Mother's Day Poems

Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate and honor the dedication and contribution of a mother. She is an integral part of her family, but Mother’s Day can be a difficult holiday for many people who’ve lost their moms. It’s a reminder of the void that has been left after her passing. It can be a holiday that’s filled with a lot of grief because you wish you had more time to spend with her.

    This is my first Mother's day without my mom. I always gave her flowers, and roses were her favorite. I wanted to do something for mama, so I wrote this poem for her. If this is your first Mother's day without your mother I hope this poem will bring you comfort.

    Roses For Mama

    First Mother's Day Without Mom

    in Mother's Day Poems

    Lord, are there roses in your garden
    On the shores of jubilee
    Would you pick a dozen of your best
    And deliver them for me?
    For you see, today is mothers' day
    And I can't visit my mom
    For it wasn't very long ago
    The angels came and took her home.
    So if there are roses in your garden
    On the shores of Jubilee
    Would you pick a dozen of your best
    And deliver them for me?
    Would you take them to my mother
    And tell her that I love her.
    Tell her that I miss her
    In oh! So many ways
    But I have joy in knowing
    We'll meet again someday
    And we'll pick roses together
    On the shores of Jubilee..

    I wrote this poem on the anniversary of losing my mum. I was only 15 when I lost my mum to cancer, then tragically lost my dad 15 months later from a heart attack. I'm 43 years old now, and despite the number of years that have passed, I still miss them every day and the life that I would have had with them.

    Missing My Parents

    in Family Death Poems

    I miss your face; I miss your smile.
    I wish I could see you once in a while.
    I miss your laugh; I miss your love.
    I hope you are watching with pride from above.
    I miss so much not having you here,
    Guiding me in life and having you near.
    I miss you, Mum; I miss you, Dad,
    Forever in my heart with the memories we had.

    I lost my mother a few years ago, and I miss her more and more each day, so I wrote a poem for her wishing her a happy Mother's Day in heaven.

    Happy Heavenly Mother's Day

    Wishing My Mother A Happy Mother's Day In Heaven

    in Mother's Day Poems

    Mom,
    Every day must be a celebration in your
    Newfound heavenly home,
    But our Mother's Day is forever empty
    For your children here below.
    There will be no bouquet of roses,
    No gifts, no cards, no hugs,
    No connection to call to hear your voice
    To tell you how much your loved.
    Each day I see you in my mirrors,
    You're in my flowerbeds outside.
    I know you live within my children
    As I can see you in their eyes.
    Every day I feel you're near me,
    But it's just not the same.
    I miss your arms to hold me.
    I miss you calling out my name,
    So I just want to tell you
    Because you're far away
    I miss you more today
    Than I did yesterday.
    I know you're content and peaceful
    As God shines his light on you
    And he showers you with joy and blessings
    All the whole day through.
    So happy heavenly Mother's Day, Mom.
    With abundance of love from me to you,
    Your daughter

    The world never seems the same after the loss of a loved one. There'll always be a void in your life that nothing can fill.

    I Miss You

    Losing A Loved One

    in Missing You Poems

    I still miss you
    As the weeks and years go by.

    I still miss you
    Like the clouds would miss the sky.

    I still miss you
    Like a bird without its wings.

    I still miss you
    Like a flower without the joys of spring.

    I still miss you
    As I greet another day.

    I still miss the love we shared
    And the memories we both made.

    I wrote this for my mom who died when I was 17

    Lonely For Mom

    • By Stephanie
    • Published: August 2008

    in Missing You Poems

    There was one a person who made me feel safe,
    held my hand when I began to fall from grace.

    This person was my mother; she's the one I miss.
    She brought me love and endless happiness.

    On November 11th 2001, you died, leaving me all alone,
    Oh, how I cried.

    Why did you have to go? Please tell me why.
    Now I have to drink and do drugs just to get by.

    I wish you were here, Mom. I miss you so much.
    No one even knows what I would give for just one touch.

    Why does everyone else get to have there moms near?
    Do they know I'd give anything to have my mother here?

    I'm sad and lost. Mom, will you help me find my way?
    Will you get rid of the tears I cry each day?

    I know the answer, and the answer is no,
    'cause for me to move on, I have to let you go.

    Mom, I love you and thank you for all you did for me,
    and I hope someday I make you proud for whatever comes to be.

    For all those that have a mother, please hold her tight,
    and never say you hate her, even when you fight.

    For you never know when she might have to go,
    and the pain that it brings ... I hope you never have to know!!

    I'm fifteen years old now, but I was six when my mom died. Every Mother's Day is hard, but this year seems like it will be the hardest. I wrote this one explaining what I would do if I could have my mom just for this Mother's Day.

    Just This One Mother's Day

    • By Rebecca
    • Published: May 2010

    in Mom Poems by Teens

    If I could pick one day to have her here,
    I'd choose it to be this Mother's Day.
    This occasion out of all the others,
    It's going to be harder than words could say.

    On that one day we'll do it all,
    And I wouldn't waste a single minute.
    I'd keep going all day, hour after hour,
    And If I got tired I would never quit.

    Just knowing it was my last chance
    To show her all of my love.
    Because it must be hard for her to see,
    Watching from up above.

    I'd make her a very special card,
    As I make them for people all the time.
    But hers wouldn't be like the rest,
    Above all others hers would shine.

    It would say Dear Mom, I love you,
    I'm proud to be your daughter.
    Then I'd hug her tightly
    And hold her while I've got her.

    She'd French braid my hair in the end,
    Just like she always used to.
    I'd smile at her when it was done,
    And say, "Oh mom, I love you!"

    I'd tell her how scared I am,
    Because my surgery is the next day.
    But she'd tell me she'd be with me,
    Holding my hand all the way.

    I'd cry when it was dark out,
    Knowing the day would soon end.
    Although she won't be here forever,
    In my dreams I can always pretend.

    For all who have lost a mother, my heart goes out to you. My mom passed away from cancer Sept 2, 2012. I wonder if my heart will ever stop breaking. Her pictures are in my locket and I wear it every day. She was a wonderful mother and I miss her more than words can say. I know she is with the Lord now and not suffering anymore and someday when God calls me home I will see her again. God bless.

    The Locket

    in Mourning Poems

    I have a special locket that rest above my heart,
    it holds your beautiful pictures while we must be apart.
    It's my hope that you're still with me no matter come what may,
    so I know that I can talk to you every single day.
    When I walk into a storm you're watching over there,
    guiding me to sunny skies with tender loving care.
    I'll never have to be alone you're always next to me,
    you show me love in different ways the eyes could never see.
    Your spirit fills my soul with love beyond any explanation,
    with pride I'll wear it every day in total admiration.
    Of the woman who changed my life and patiently awaits,
    arms wide open to welcome me when I reach heaven's gates.
    It's never really good bye if in your heart you do believe,
    a mother's love is endless, and never ever leaves.

    All Things I Never Said

    in Missing You Poems

    I fall down on my knees and begin to cry.
    For I never wanted you to leave my side.
    I wanted you to be by my side forever and ever.
    And I wanted to leave your side, never.
    For you were my mom and I'll love you forever more.
    Every trouble I went through, you're the one who opened the door.
    I lie on the ground crying more than ever before.
    I had so little memories and I wanted much more.
    I was too caught up in my friends.
    I never had time to spend.
    I want you back; it's not fair.
    A mom like you was very rare.
    I love you, I love you, please come back.
    My whole life just fell off track.
    Now that you're gone, I have nowhere to go.
    I need you here; there's so much more I need to know.
    I miss you, I wish it never turned out this way.
    Now that you're gone, there's so much to say.
    I'm sorry for the fun times I could have spent with you.
    This isn't happening; it can't be true!
    I love you, I love you, PLEASE come back home.
    Now that you're gone, I'm all alone.

    When We See You Again

    in Death Moving On Poems

    As I sit here and wonder how things would have turned out,
    Not to have been part of your life was there ever a doubt.
    I would see you again, just didn't know when.
    A long time has passed, wondering how you have been.
    Just to see your face one last time is something I never would have thought,
    You have been on my mind all this time, something that I had always and never forgot.
    The lessons that I learned from you, made each day more pleasant,
    Your teachings of everyday life were such a warm and needed present.
    I leave you now knowing you are safe in his arms,
    No more pain or suffering, away from all harm.
    Rest with the angels, until we all will see you once more.
    We love and have missed you, things we will always adore.
    Watch over us now, for one day it will come.
    When we are laughing and talking and having oh so much fun.
    We miss you mom, but we are glad that you made it home.
    We wouldn't have wanted it any other way even if it meant for us to be alone.

    My mother was a precious gift from our glorious Lord above,
    but the Lord chose to take her and give her all his love.

    Something about Mother's Day always makes me shed a tear.

    Another Chance

    • By Langford M. Simpson

    in Family Death Poems

    If I had another chance, would it all be the same?
    If I told you how I feel, would you consider my pain?
    If I had another chance, it wouldn't happen again
    I would really let you know how I'm feeling within.
    If I had another chance, we'd still be together
    Even though I know that your love is forever.
    If I had another chance, I would tell you I care,
    And you know it's hard for me to let emotions appear.
    If I had another chance I would keep you close
    'Cause it's a tease every night when I reach for your ghost.
    If I had another chance, I'd keep a smile on your face
    Because you kept your son happy and that can't be erased.
    If I had another chance, my mother would still be alive
    'cause when you left, every chance that I needed also died.
    If I had another chance, I would see you again,
    But I guess memories and pictures will keep you close...until then.

    Missing You On Mother's Day Poem

    in Mother's Day Poems

    Mother of all,
    Loved with all her being.
    Loved by all
    The living,
    Your soul is with me,
    Yet I feel alone.
    I was blessed,
    When you were here,
    But I need your guidance now.
    I feel lost without you.

    I feel like my heart is gone.
    Please,
    Help me in my time of need.
    You have been missed,
    But I feel as though I have forgotten you.
    I don't want that.

    I know Mother's Day
    Was the most important time of year
    For you and me.
    I miss you
    And the fun times we had.
    The memories
    Are not only great but hurt as well,
    Reminding me every day how much I miss you,

    Mary Frances Ross,
    Mother of all mothers,
    Wife of all time,
    Friend and great women,
    I will never forget you.
    Happy Mother's Day!
    May your soul rest in peace.
    Please keep remaining in my heart
    And watching over me.
    Thanks for everything.
    I love you and miss you with all my heart.

    With all the love I have,
    Louis A. White-Ross-Deliz, Son of Mary Frances Ross
