Poems Honoring Strong And Supportive Mother Daughter And Son Relationships

What is love? In Hebrew, the language of the Bible, the word for love is ahava which shares the same root as hav to give. The effort that mothers put in to parenting their children causes wellsprings of love to spring forth from their hearts. The more we give to our children, the more love we will feel for them. We would do well to remember that all loving relationships whether platonic, romantic, or with family members must have giving at its center for the relationship to flourish.

  1. Mother, A Cradle To Hold Me

    Famous Poem

    When we are small, our mothers are everything to us. Her arms were made to cradle us and provide for all our needs. At first, we don’t want to be separated from her. As time passes, a mother helps us become more independent. Even in our teenage years, we still love our mother even though we don’t show it well, and we finally come to realize the wisdom she has. This is a great Mother’s Day poem that thanks her for her guidance and unconditional love. No matter our stage of life, whether an infant, young child, teenager, or adult, our mother’s love for us is unconditional.

    in Famous Family Poems

    It is true
    I was created in you.
    It is also true
    That you were created for me.

  13. She's Our Mother

    When I wrote this poem, I was thinking about all the mothers, me being a mother, my daughters being a mother, and our mothers being mothers. Whether we bear a child or not, we still end up being a mother to someone, and we each have a mother somewhere. With fear, reluctance, and a racing heart, a mother raises her child to soon be released to a dangerous and unpredicted society, and with God we gain faith and encouragement for them. So this poem is for all our mothers.

    in Mother Poems

    She's a gift to her children
    Our strong devotion each day
    A hand in our hand
    A breath of fresh air along the way

  17. My Best And Favorite Girl

    • By Ronald Doe
    • Published by Family Friend Poems December 2008 with permission of the Author.

    My mother took care of my sister Kelly (who was paralyzed in a diving accident at age 16) for twenty-five years. The doctor did not expect my Kelly to live for 6 months. When she died, the doctor called my mother and said, "I didn't think Kelly would live 6 months, there is no doubt in my mind that she lived for twenty-five years because of your unselfish and unconditional for her." This is why my mom will always be "My Best And Favorite Girl."

    in Mother Poems

    You brought me my first toy,
    My first bike and baseball glove.
    You filled my heart with joy,
    And you filled my life with love.

  18. My Mom

    • By Terry W. Kraemer
    • Published by Family Friend Poems May 2016 with permission of the Author.

    My mom raised my sister and me virtually on her own because my father was rarely there to help. We lost my sister and her two children back in 2004, and neither my mom nor I have ever been the same. Losing a sister, niece and nephew was devastating, but I cannot imagine losing a daughter and two grandchildren. Now I'm all that she has. She has been there for me through good times and the bad. I can't thank her enough, so this poem is dedicated to my mother, Stella. I love you, Ma.

    in Mother Poems

    I will always need my mom,
    regardless of my age.
    She's made me laugh, made me cry.
    Her love will never fade.
