Mom Poems From Daughters

Mother and daughter relationships are complex because the daughter looks to her mother as a role model of what a woman is. As she grows up and sees other women who live their lives differently, she chooses between imitating her mother or other significant influences in her life. As an adolescent she may come to look down on her mother and think that other woman are much better. Of course she is not a fully grown woman so she does not understand the challenges and choices that her mother faces. It is only when she herself becomes a woman that she can fully appreciate her mother.

  1. 1. Love At Last

    • By Peggy Liimatta
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2008

    I am a mother hurting and trying to regain my daughter's love. I wrote this poem from my heart and find poetry a very satisfying way to get my feelings out. This is the first poem I have ever really worked hard on and actually finished. Thanks for reading it.

    Poem From Mom Who Wants Her Daughter's Love

    I remember the good times
    that we once had...
    but still my life
    is sad

    I try to look forward,
    but my mind goes back...
    because a piece of the glass
    on our portrait is cracked.

    I try so hard to protect the glass.
    I won't let it shatter...
    Because you and your love
    are all that matters.

    My family is all
    that means anything to me.
    Still...everything always
    gets blamed on me.

    This happens to moms
    all over the world.
    We're supposed to be perfect;
    we learn this as girls.

    I have never been great
    or the "best of moms"...
    And at times I've failed
    by the things I've done wrong.

    For those things, I am sorry.
    I didn't want you to cry...
    but please remember
    my eyes are not dry.

    I hope you can find
    our love that seems lost.
    For the mistakes I have made
    came at a very high cost.

    A piece of my life,
    is missing and gone.
    And everything feels
    Oh so wrong.

    But there is one thing
    that I can do.
    I will try to be strong
    just for you.

    One thing I feel
    down deep in my heart.
    It's my love for you.
    I guess that's a start.

    You have a new son
    now growing inside.
    And I hope that you feel
    each of his kicks with pride.

    You will feel love
    like never before.
    It is your family
    you will completely adore.

    It's a new beginning.
    you will forget the past.
    It completes you as a woman.
    It will be "love at last."

  3. 2. Mommy Dearest

    • By Deanne Finewood
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2008

    Even though my mother had a heart condition, she died suddenly and unexpectedly. We cherished each day we were able to share together. She was a loving mother and to say that she will be missed is an understatement. She will be in my heart, thoughts and prayers everyday. Forever she will remain Mommy Dearest.

    Mommy Dearest you will always be
    My mother so loving and so loved by me
    For God has taken you to be by his side
    Now in Heaven is where you will reside

    You have blessed my life in so many ways
    I will cherish our memories until the end of my days
    You left me too soon and this was not part of our plan
    But God's wishes always come before those of man

    Without you I must travel the path alone
    No longer my guide, the way you had shown
    Your heart my have been weak, but you were strong
    For your loving embrace I will always long

    God sent you to me as a special gift from above
    To teach me life's lessons and shower me with your love
    I will always remember your beautiful and smiling face
    In my heart you will always have a very special place

    A special bond we shared like no other
    For this is possible for only Daughter and Mother
    I thanked God for each day we were able to share
    But without you in my life it is too difficult to bear

    Being with God, I hope you will find joy and peace
    In this I can find comfort and some happiness at least
    For Mommy Dearest you will always be
    My Mother so loving and so loved by me

    Mommy Dearest

  5. 3. Thank You Mother

    • By Devon
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2008

    I dedicate this poem to my beautiful mother who has helped me through all my struggles and is the most important person in my life.

    To be a mother is not an easy task,
    yet you do it proudly every day, no matter what is asked.
    You have turned your baby into a beautiful young lady.
    You were there for me since the very beginning and saved me countless tears.
    The pushy and wise advice you gave will carry me through the years.
    With my every mistake or wrongful deed,
    you were always there to understand.
    You put no limits on my dreams or anything else I wish to do.
    You never forget to say you care or that you love me too.
    The smile and tears upon your face when I achieve provides me with more value in my heart than you'd ever believe.
    There is no other person that will shape my heart the way you've done,
    your job finished perfectly for your precious daughters and son.
    We have had a rocky road through triumph and catastrophe, hard time and despair,
    but not a single moment of time of not having a wonderful mother there.
    You have always put in your last with love, and my whole life is not enough time for me to repay you.
    We always put our disagreements to the side and manage to make it through.
    I know that my teen years have driven you crazy, but you have guided me with assurance along the way.
    You have given me comfort and certainty with every breath I take within the day.
    Your little girl is growing up, but your baby girl will always remain deep inside me.
    There are not enough words that can thank you for how you've helped me emotionally and physically.
    I have my whole future ahead of me and you are the women that has led me and guided me toward the proper path.
    How can one simple day prove that much thanks and love to someone who has pushed this far and still is working her way?
    No other person deserves a more wonderful Mother's Day.

  6. 4. Because You're My Mom

    • By Linda Arlene Fassett
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2009

    Dedicated to my daughter, Deanna Nicole, in the hopes that she will remember when we were best friends. I cry every time I read this because I pray she one day feels this way toward me again. I miss you so very much my daughter, my best friend.
    Love, Mom

    Poem To Mom From Daughter

    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 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 God you were created, and then I came to be.

  7. 5. Do You Have An Answer?

    To this day I still don't understand why mothers choose a man over their own flesh and blood...

    Absent Mother Poem

    Why did you do the things you did?
    Why did you say the things you said?
    Why did you change who you are?
    Why did you choose a man over your own daughter?
    Why did you hurt me?
    Why did you break my heart?
    Why did you betray me?
    Why did you break your promises?
    Why did you have to break up our once "happy family" apart?
    Why are you so evil?
    Why weren't you there for me?

    Where were you when I needed you?
    Where were you when I was sick?
    Where were you when I cried?
    Where were you when I was sad?
    Where were you when I needed help?
    Where were you when I was scared?
    Where were you when I was troubled?
    Where were you when I had no one?
    Where were you when I needed a mother?
    Where were you!?

    What happened to my mother?
    What is wrong with you?
    What do you think of?
    What are you doing?
    What is more important than me?

    When are you going to go back to being the mother I once had?
    When will you realize what you've done?
    When will you take off that blindfold you have?
    When will you care?

    Who was there for me when I needed someone...not you!
    Who did I go to when I needed help...not you!
    Who always encouraged me to do better...not you!
    Who was there to wipe my tears away...not you!
    Who taught me right from wrong...not you!
    Who helped me overcome my fears...not you!
    Who showed me the love I needed...not you!

    Because of you, it's hard for me to love another person.
    Because of you, it's hard for me to have faith in people.
    Because of you, it's hard for me trust a soul.
    Because of you, I must remain a motherless daughter.
    Because of you, it's hard for me to open my heart to others.
    Because of you, it's hard for me to believe someone when they say, "I love you."
    All because of you!

    See what you've done to me!

  8. 6. Mommy Do You Love Me?

    • By Arnot McCallum
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2007

    I dedicate my poem to my Mother, your Mother, and all the Mothers of the world who sacrifice their lives everyday for the children of this planet.

    Mommy, do you love me?
    Of course I do dear!
    Let's snuggle a minute,
    Come sit,
    Over here.

    I prayed every bedtime,
    For a little girl like you,
    And when I saw your funny face,
    No one else would do!

    Your face was all wrinkled,
    Your skin was all red.
    You were bald as a beach ball,
    Not a hair on your head.

    You cried and you yelled
    You burped and you spit,
    You threw the odd tantrum,
    You took the odd fit.

    But you're growing up quickly
    And soon you'll take flight,
    And I'll be alone
    With my memories each night.

    SO, you ask, DO I LOVE YOU?
    My answer is simple,
    I love every freckle,
    I love every dimple.
    I love every giggle
    I love every smile,
    You're my reason for living,
    You make life worthwhile.
    Together we'll travel life's road to the end.
    Sweetheart, you're my daughter!
    My Very Best Friend!

  9. 7. Precious Gift

    A mother's words of love to her daughter...

    When times seem too hard to bear and I feel like giving up,
    I envision 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 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,

    Precious Gift

  10. 8. The Ruse

    No one can truly understand depression unless you either live with it or love someone who lives with it. This poem is dedicated to my beautiful daughter who has been suffering from depression for so long I don't remember when she wasn't depressed. All I can do is try and love her through her pain...

    Poem From Mother About Daughter's Depression

    She's beauty, style, poise and grace,
    At least she appears to be.
    But no one knows the girl who hides
    Behind the face they see.

    Her self-esteem is all but gone,
    Of her ego there's barely a trace.
    There's so much pain behind the mask
    She wears upon her face.

    Depression has controlled her life
    With far too many tears.
    Her smile is fake; she's good at it;
    She's been doing it for years.

    The cover is what attracts us
    To the story within the book.
    And she's afraid that without the ruse,
    No one would bother to look.

  11. 9. My Father Gave Her To Me

    • By Donetta Davis
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    A girl thanks God for her stepmother who is exactly the person she needed in her life.

    Poem From Step Daughter To Step Mother

    My father gave her to me, as a gift from God above,
    Who would know a Step-Mother,
    is someone you can really love.
    I shall call her mother,
    the name that suits her best;
    Although my veins are not of her blood, She surpassed all the rest.
    She loves and understands me,
    and of course is my Best Friend,
    She is soft, and kind, and loving, until our journey, here, shall come to an end.
    The Lord gave her to me,
    She's my comfort zone,
    The Lord knows every need of his children,
    and that I needed to be in taught in a new tone.
    Quite a few heartaches for both my new mom and me,
    We were put together for a reason, even if we cannot see.
    We had both lost someone dear to us, and with God's sweet guiding kiss,
    He put together a family,
    so we could love the ones,
    that together, we missed.
    Mother, I am sorry that you suffered all the strife in your life,
    But God had a plan for me and you,
    and made you my father's wife.
    I think about a little girl who's mother's love she would have missed,
    And I feel the tears she felt,
    when it was her brow you kissed.
    I cannot say enough for all the times you cared,
    Thank you for the tender moments that together we can now share.
    My Mother she will be, forever and ever again,
    She's my shining Angel and most of all, forever, my friend.

  12. 10. Never Enough

    • By Author Unknown
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    A daughter who is aware of the great debt she owes to her mother puts her gratitude into words.

    Multiple people have claimed to be the author of this poem. The poem was certainly written before 2006. At this point it is impossible for us to determine who the true author is.

    Poem Thanking Mom For Everything She's Done

    Sometimes I know the words to say to give thanks for all you've done,
    but then they fly up and away as quickly as they come.

    How could I possibly thank you enough, the one who makes me whole,
    the one to whom I owe my life, the forming of my soul?

    The one who tucked me in at night, the one who stopped my crying,
    the one who was the expert at picking up when I was lying.

    The one who saw me off to school and spent sad days alone,
    yet magically produced a smile as soon as I came home.

    The one who makes such sacrifices to always put me first,
    who lets me test my broken wings, in spite of how it hurts.

    Who paints the world a rainbow when it's filled with broken dreams,
    who explains it all so clearly when nothing is what it seems.

    Are there really any words for this? I find this question tough.
    Anything I want to say just doesn't seem enough.

    What way is there to thank you for your heart, your sweat, your tears,
    for ten thousand things you've done for oh so many years.

    For changing with me as I changed, accepting all my flaws,
    not loving 'cause you had to, but loving just because.

    For never giving up on me when your wits had reached its end,
    for always being proud of me, for being my best friend.

    And so I come to realize, the only way to say,
    the only thank you that's enough is clear in just one way.

    Look at me before you see what I've become.
    Do you see yourself in me, the job that you have done?

    All your hopes and all your dreams, the strength that no one sees,
    a transfer over many years, your best was to pass me.

    Thank you for the gifts you give, for everything you do,
    but thank you, Mommy, most of all for making dreams come true.

    A daughter explains some things to her mother

    Dear Mom From Daughter Poem

    I can never explain the ways I've felt
    Growing up without you, playing the cards I was dealt.
    There were always many things I wanted to say
    My dreams and new thoughts that came each day
    I wish I could take back some of the skeptical things I've said
    To be more respectful, listen, be positive instead.
    At times I felt you were never listening to what I would say,
    So I'd get angry and react in the wrong way.
    I understand that it took some time for me to change my ways,
    I prayed for this each night and even some days.
    Although you'd never see the true feelings I'd hide
    I love you very much, deep down inside.
    Always my mother, and never my friend, so you could not see,
    The angry little girl that lay within me
    Notice how I've changed each and every day
    I've grown to follow your footsteps, but in a different way.
    Although I'm quite unsure of where the road might lead,
    If you stay by my side I promise to take heed
    I am your child and I love you dearly
    Thanks for all you've done mom truly and sincerely
    To me you're very special like no other,
    Loving, caring, and concerned, my dear mother.

    I recently got in a fight with my mom, and I want to let her know that I appreciate everything she does for me. Feedback would be nice :)

    You are my Hero.
    The most influential person in my life.
    You are loved by us all.
    A mother, sister, daughter, and a wife.

    You are always the strongest.
    And like the threads of a quilt;
    You hold us together.
    You are a flower whose petals will never wilt.

    As much as you deny it,
    You are beautiful inside and out.
    Your kindness and unselfishness,
    Is what makes you shine throughout.

    I don't think you can comprehend
    How much I appreciate you everyday.
    And how much you mean to me.
    To me you are perfect in every way.

    So thank you mom.
    For always being here.
    Especially in my times of need.
    You are my Hero.

    My mom is my role model, and this poem was my way of telling her just how much she means to me.

    Poem About All My Mother Has Done

    You brushed my hair and tucked me in,
    Made me laugh for hours on end.
    You kissed my boo-boos when I fooled around.
    Mommy, you never let me down.

    You held my hand as I got my shots
    Then took me for ice cream that hit the spot.
    You bought me Polly Pockets and Barbies, too.
    Mommy, there's no one quite like you.

    You held my hand as I walked through the door,
    Then you met my teacher as I stared at the floor.
    You told me it'd be fun and I'd make friends too,
    And for that reason, Mommy, I love you.

    You listened to me talk about the drama and boys
    Then taught me how to handle it with class and poise.
    You spoke with wisdom and of things you know.
    You love to hear me say, "Mommy, you told me so."

    You love the Lord with all you heart,
    And you're kind and gentle and pretty and smart.
    If I could be anyone, I'd pick you,
    'Cause, Mommy, the world would be better with two of you.

    You've taught me so much, with more in store,
    And with each day that passes, I love you more.

    Appreciation Poem To A Mother

    Gone are the eyes that watched me grow
    The eyes that were able to see into my soul
    Together we climbed mountains and made it through the pain
    Only to find out that someday it would be forever changed

    As you've gotten weaker, I've gotten stronger
    Able to take care of myself even though I didn't want to

    You'd be proud of my wit, my confidence and my charm
    People say I'm just like you and I know all about your charms
    The eyes are in my heart, the eyes that saw my soul
    But gone are the beautiful eyes, the eyes that watched me grow

    A letter to a mother who works from dawn to dusk and has little in terms of financial success to show for it. Her daughter takes the time to tell her mother how much she appreciates her.

    I Love You Letter


    I see you working hard,
    To give us a better life,
    Working all those hours,
    For people who barely
    Give you a dime.

    I see you trying,
    To give us all it is,
    That you can give,
    Even though it means you,
    Are the one who never gets.

    I see the tears that drop,
    When holidays come around,
    When you think all we can see,
    Under the Christmas tree,
    Is the uncovered ground.

    I see your struggle,
    Raising us all on your own,
    Never having time to yourself,
    Never a moment alone,
    Always baking something,
    Or folding somebody's clothes,
    Always cleaning up messes,
    Or wiping a runny nose.

    I see your love,
    It's proven by everything you do,
    Every time you say you love me,
    I know you're telling the truth,
    And even though I don't always say it,
    But Mother I love you too.

    I wrote this poem for my first born. She was the first "reason" I had to keep on going. It's my way of telling her that I know the troubles that are ahead, but I will be there to guide her every step.

    You Are My Daughter For Eternity

    When I held you for the first time,
    My life began to shine.
    I knew then this life wasn't just mine.

    I would do what it takes
    To help you correct your mistakes,
    To get by the challenges you may face.

    For our freedom many have fought.
    Some days will be good, others will not.
    Always thank God for the life you've got.

    The world isn't perfect, as you will see.
    Having you here made it better for me.
    When you're in need, by your side I'll be.

    For you are my daughter for eternity.

  19. 17. Remember When

    I wrote this poem over twenty years ago when I become a mother myself. I have the most courageous mother. She is battling cancer and fights for her life each day. I gave this to her for Mother's Day all those years ago and I just wanted to share it with the world. Time heals all wrongs. Life is so short, and none of us are promised tomorrow. God bless all the Mother's in this world. I thank God for my mother and every day we have.

    Poem For Mothers Day From Daughter

    Life takes us through many changes like the seasons of each year,
    Some so unforgettable we sometimes shed a tear.
    I remember when I was a little girl, it seems not long ago,
    My mother would shelter me in her arms,
    A feeling I thought I'd never outgrow.
    Maybe I really haven't because hidden inside of me,
    There's still that need to hold her,
    Though are chances are few and far between.
    We live our lives looking back on memories of the past,
    Ones we often cherish, for time moves along so fast.
    I remember my teenage years, rebellious as they were,
    Though I'd made many mistakes I could always count on her.
    Oh the times I'd hurt her with the hateful things I'd say,
    I hope she knows how sorry I am and how much I love her today.
    As children we don't realize how words can break a heart,
    Leave scars that last a lifetime and tear two lives apart.
    Though forgiveness isn't easy, we've found it through the years,
    My mother and I are closer than ever,
    Our love has washed away the tears.
    So let me tell you that I love you mom, in this message that I send,
    Though time is ever changing, I'll always remember when.

  20. 18. No Greater Love

    A daughter asks her mother for forgiveness.

    Asking Mother For Forgiveness

    I caused you a lot pain and I didn't care, but you still loved me.
    Please forgive me, Mama.

    I hurt you in so many ways, but you were always there for me.
    Please forgive me, Mama.

    When you gave me advice, I didn't listen and I have so many regrets.
    Please forgive me, Mama.

    If I knew then what I know now, I would have told you everyday how much I loved you.
    Please forgive me, Mama

    When you were growing older, I didn't want to hear about your aches and pains.
    You waited for my calls and visits that never came.

    I always made excuses why I couldn't be there for you.
    Please forgive me, Mama.

    I know now there is no greater love like your love Mama,
    and how much I need you right now to hold me and kiss me and tell me you forgive me.

    Now that I am older and my health is failing,
    I realize why I should have been there for you when you needed me.
    Please forgive me, Mama.

    I need you now, Mama.
    How I long to see your beautiful smile and feel your loving touch
    and tell me everything will be all right like you used to.
    Please forgive me, Mama.

    Can you hear me, Mama, as I kneel here beside your grave?
    Can you hear what I am saying?
    Can you hear how much I love you and how much I miss you?

    I don't know when the good Lord is coming for me,
    but I hope you will be waiting so I can hug you and hold you in my arms
    and tell you how much I love you.

  21. 19. I Don't Want Any Other

    • By Ashley N. Hoppes

    A girl expresses anguish that her mom is no longer in her life, and tells her mom, "I still love you and want you back."

    Mom, Please Come Back Into My Life Poem

    Our life has not been easy.
    We've managed to drift apart.

    But whatever it's worth,
    Know you're always in my heart.

    Not a day goes by
    When I don't wish we'd talk.

    To say hello or goodbye
    Or maybe go for a walk.

    You're missing important days.
    I'm not a girl anymore.

    It's a difficult maze
    Every time my heart's torn.

    There are times I need you
    To be there for me.

    That nurturing statue,
    If only you could be.

    It's not you I blame
    For the way we are.

    But all the hurtful shame
    Left an invisible scar.

    Sometimes I feel trapped;
    I don't know what to do.

    Does God have our life mapped.
    Help me sail across the blue!

    Why can't we mend this?
    We both love each other.

    I'm not sure about sis,
    But I miss my mother.

    I hope you understand
    Why it's so hard to call.

    I have the phone in my hand,
    But it seems to always fall.

    For now I'll hope and pray
    For you to come around.

    That would be the day
    When the new us is found.

    I still love you
    And still want you to be my mother.

    Regardless of what we've been through,
    I don't want any other.

  22. 20. My Beautiful Mother

    • By Kathirine Hinkle
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2011

    This Poem is about my mom. My everything. My world. She means so much and I love her. She is serving in the armed forces and has been gone for over 3 years. She means so much to me.

    She is the wind that lifts me up to the sky.
    The very breath that I take each day.
    The morning sun shining down on me.
    The moonlight guiding me through the night.
    My northern star, brightly shining in the darkest of days.
    The warmth of her voice echoes in my head.
    The feeling of her kiss, brings tears to my eyes.
    Her smile, making each rainy day, a little bit brighter.
    Living life as though nothing can hurt her.
    A mother is god in a child's eyes.
    She's my god.
    My everything.
    My world.
    The reason why I push on every day of my life.
    Pressing myself to be better.
    Living my day as each is my last.
    Just as she does.
    She's the life that is mine.
    The rhythm of my heartbeat.
    The core of my soul.
    She is the one who wipes the tears away.
    She is the one who can cry and still stay strong.
    She is the one who takes all of my worries away.
    And enlightens my day.
    She is unlike any other.
    She is my one, my only.
    My Beautiful Mother.
