Aunt & Uncle Poems

Poems for Aunts and Uncles

Every member of the family has a unique role to play in the family unit. In every family these roles are different. A role that an aunt or uncle may play is that of helping parents getting along with their children. Much like grandparents, an aunt or uncle is not subjectively involved in what happens in the family. They are often able to see things in a more objective way. Aunts and uncles also may be able to build relationships with their nieces and nephews and give them a place to get away from the family for a while. An uncle or aunt that are committed to their nieces and nephews can play an invaluable part in their lives.

  1. 1. Baby Girl

    • By James Stewart
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2011

    I wrote this poem for my niece who is like a daughter to me. It talks about the girl growing up and going her own way in life. But no matter how old she may be or what she may do in life she will always be my world and baby girl.

    You're growing up so fast
    how I want our special moments to last
    though I want you to stay
    I know one day you'll spread your wings and fly away

    • By Michaella A. Molinski
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    In thankfulness to an uncle who is more than just a relative.

    To me you're more than an Uncle,
    you're truly a great friend.
    Someone I could pour my thoughts out to
    knowing you'll cherish them to the end.

  5. 3. My Auntie

    • By George Naylor
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2012

    This poem is for my aunt. She was like a mother to me and one of the kindest, most caring and giving people I know.

    When I was hopeless, you were there.
    You picked me up; you showed me care.
    Without the love you had for me
    God only knows where I would be.

  11. 9. A Poem For Auntie

    • By Brittany L. Briscoe
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    A poem about a beloved aunt who's always there for her niece. Sometimes it is easier to say thank you on paper than in person.

    Sometimes I know the words to say
    Give thanks for all you've done
    But then they fly up and away
    As quickly as they come
