Mother Poems

Poems for Moms

The bond that a child develops with his mother can never be severed. You grew as an organism inside her for nine months. She carried you and sustained you, sharing her sustenance with you through your umbilical cord. When you are born the cord is severed. It is never severed in her heart. That bond lasts forever. As we grow up we become our own people and may come to forget that woman who nurtured and loved us. But remember this, she will never forget you and never stop loving you.

    Poem About What It Means To Be A Mother

    Baby dolls and dinosaurs-
    one that cries, one that roars
    The pitter patter of little feet-
    a bike race in which they want you to compete

    This is lovely and how true! There is no bond like the bond between mother and child. It's unbreakable! This is well-said.

  7. The Mothering Job

    • By Marian N. Kehrley
    • Published: February 2006

    I watched my Mom fill out an application.
    I looked at the line that asks about past professions.
    I thought to myself, that space is too small
    To write down what she's been, to cover it all.
