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.

  1. 1. Her Hands

    • By Maggie Pittman
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    Do we ever stop to think of the infinite loving acts of kindness that our mothers have bestowed upon us?

    Poem About All A Mother Does

    Her hands held me gently from the day I took my first breath.
    Her hands helped to guide me as I took my first step.
    Her hands held me close when the tears would start to fall.
    Her hands were quick to show me that she would take care of it all.

    Her hands were there to brush my hair, or straighten a wayward bow.
    Her hands were often there to comfort the hurts that didn't always show.
    Her hands helped hold the stars in place, and encouraged me to reach.
    Her hands would clap and cheer and praise when I captured them at length.

    Her hands would also push me, though not down or in harm's way.
    Her hands would punctuate the words, just do what I say.
    Her hands sometimes had to discipline, to help bend this young tree.
    Her hands would shape and mold me into all she knew I could be.

    Her hands are now twisting with age and years of work,
    Her hand now needs my gentle touch to rub away the hurt.
    Her hands are more beautiful than anything can be.
    Her hands are the reason I am me.

  3. 2. What I Would Do For You

    What indeed would a mother not do for her child?

    Mother's Dedication To Her Child

    I would do just about anything you'd ask,
    For you, there's nothing I wouldn't do; there's no such task.

    I would walk without my shoes to the end of the Earth.
    I would give up anything I had to, to teach you self-worth.

    I would hold your hand every minute of every day,
    But I won't because I know you need to find your own way.

    I would surely bear the heartache of your first love that's real,
    Even though I can't, I will naturally feel as you feel.

    I would sell my soul if it would keep you happy forever,
    I would give my right arm to keep us forever together.

    I would run a hundred miles up-hill in the rain,
    Just to guarantee that you will never feel pain.

    I would laugh with you even if I were sad.
    I will give you a smile even if I'm mad.

    I can only accept your mistakes with a grin on my face.
    I will guide you in correcting them but at your own pace.

    I will guide you through life, as this world can get quite wild.
    Just don't you ever forget that you will always be my child.

  5. 3. Motherhood

    • By Katherine L. Dykstra
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2015

    After putting my children to bed one night I wanted a moment to myself. It had been a normal chaotic, busy day and I have always used writing, especially poetry, as an outlet to relax. I sat on my porch with my journal and started thinking about something unique I could do for all the moms I knew (friends and family alike), that wouldn't be costly for Mother' Day-a week away. I wrote this poem, rolled each in ribbon and put them in their mailboxes. I was told it was the best present ever received.

    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
    Fruity Pebbles, pancakes, no wait! a pop-tart-
    those daily moments that steal your heart
    One throws tantrums, the other just pouts-
    ahh, the joys of motherhood- what life is all about
    Another birthday - two paychecks in all-
    but, it is so worth it with smiling memories on the wall
    From late night tears to early morning grumps-
    through all the bruises, scrapes and bumps
    The kisses and hugs, the encouraging words-
    from nursery rhymes to the bees and the birds
    The laughter, the memories, those looks in their eyes-
    never trade it for anything - never compromise
    The toys left out, the clothes on the floor-
    these are the moments we mothers live for
    For we are the ones who are there through it all-
    to always make it better and pick them up when they fall
    From kissing their boo-boos and making sure they're fed-
    passing down stories while tucking them into bed
    Through the weight gain, cravings, labor and more-
    to that one special moment we spend 9 months waiting for
    Eighteen years is what they say, but our work is never done-
    a lifetime of tears, laughter, sadness and fun
    Nothing in the world can even come close-
    to the one special bond God made matter the most
    A relationship only two certain people can share-
    a mother and her child, nothing will ever compare...

  6. 4. My Best And Favorite Girl

    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."

    Poem About Everything Mom Taught Son

    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.
    You taught me how to count
    And how to say my ABC's,
    How to say, "You're Welcome,"
    "Thank You," and "Pretty Please."

    You taught me "Our Father,"
    And "Hail Mary, Full of Grace,"
    And how to greet a neighbor
    With a smile and embrace.
    You taught me that all things
    Come from Jesus up above.
    But most of all, sweet Mother,
    You taught me how to love.

    You taught me that all leprechauns
    Possessed a pot of gold
    And that they had these unicorns
    Back in the days of old.
    You taught me that a fantasy
    Could end up with a scream.
    You taught me not to give up,
    Not to give up on a dream.

    You taught me words of wisdom
    And tended to my every need.
    You gave me all the tools
    That a man needs to succeed.
    You filled my world with laughter,
    And you brightened up my world.
    And these are the reasons why
    You're my best and favorite girl.

  7. 5. God's Special Creation

    An attempt to celebrate and honor motherhood and the role they play in all our lives.

    Spiritual Influence Of A Mother

    The hand that rocks the cradle
    also makes the house a home.
    It is the prayers of the mother
    that keeps the family strong.

    Mother rises early in the morning
    and bathes her day in prayer.
    She talks to God about her family
    and places them in His care.

    Mother communicates her love
    in a thousand different ways.
    When there's a need, she is there,
    whether it is night or day.

    Mother seasons life with love
    and gives so much of herself.
    God placed in her the best He had
    and made her unlike anyone else.

    When challenges come our way
    and when trials block our view,
    Mother kneels down beside her bed
    and prays the family through.

    Mother is God's special creation.
    She is a light shining in the dark,
    illuminating the path for her family
    and pointing them toward God.

  8. 6. When I Think About My Mum

    Raised by a truly amazing mum, I know just how wonderful mothers are. Words are never truly enough to describe a mum, it's only fitting to try. I penned this a while back. God bless you mum, I love you.

    Appreciating A Mother's Love

    When I think about my mum,
    I just can't help but smile;
    The beauty of her loving heart,
    The easy grace in her style.

    She lovingly instilled in me,
    Those values that made me strong,
    And never stops being there,
    My best friend since I was young.

    When I think about my mum,
    I just can't help but smile;
    She's been an angel from the start,
    Gentle, wise and versatile.

    She always seems to know,
    When things aren't going too well,
    Even when I try to pretend,
    Just a glance and she can tell.

    When I think about my mum,
    I just can't help but smile;
    Her own troubles she'd set apart,
    To go for me an extra mile.

    She sometimes worries too much,
    I guess it's just the way mums are.
    If she doesn't, well, who will?
    That's why she's my superstar.

  9. 7. No Charge

    I consider myself very fortunate to have been raised in a loving family. Space prevents me from going into great detail of the love my Mother gave me growing up, but here's a sample.

    My Childhood Memories Of Mom

    I've tried to write so many times,
    But it's been hard to say in rhymes.
    I'll try once more and hope you'll see
    Just what your love has meant to me.

    Thank you for your pain at birth
    That brought me to my life on Earth.
    Thanks for all the time you spent
    For cuddles and your nourishment.

    Thank you for the stories read
    As I lay cozy in my bed.
    Thanks for your enlightenment
    To solve new mysteries life had sent.

    Thank you for the cures and care
    When sickness caught me unaware.
    Thanks for tucking me in tight
    And kisses on my head, "Good night."

    Thanks for comfort when I cried
    And tissues used for tears you dried.
    Thanks for courage to go on,
    To see from night, a day will dawn.

    Thanks for freedom that you gave
    To go outside, the world to brave.
    Thank you for the friends I'd meet
    That helped with friendships I'd repeat.

    Thank you for your help with school
    And teaching me the Golden Rule.
    Thanks for praise when I prevailed
    And understanding when I failed.

    Thanks for parties that you gave
    And birthday cards I tried to save.
    Thanks for meals I loved so much
    And baking skills that few could touch!

    Thank you for your help to write
    My stories you helped bring to light.
    Thanks for helping talents surface
    That made me see my life had purpose.

    Thanks for tears when I left home,
    So I could make it on my own.
    Thanks for tears when I returned
    For visits that you long had yearned.

    But now...

    Your life I loved has run its course,
    For time will take us all by force.
    Your love for me, not kept inside,
    And no conditions were applied.

    So, thanks for all things, small and large,
    Your love saw fit to do ... no charge.

  10. 8. Thank You, Mom

    • By Miller Mottla
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2017

    Hello, my name is Miller Mottla, and I am 17 years old. This is a poem I wrote for my mom for Mother's Day. It's simple, witty, and more importantly, genuine. This piece is perfect to touch your mother at any time of the year and make her happy beyond words.

    A Poem From Son To Mom

    You tell me that you love me when I don't love myself.
    You're the one who holds my hand when I need the most help.
    You smile when you're sad to make me smile too.
    You make my life so much better by everything you do.

    The first time you held me, I knew I was safe.
    Being in your arms is still my favorite place.
    Every second of my life I know that I will be loved,
    Because God sent his most loving angel from above.

    Your heart is so pure, your smile is so genuine.
    You taught me how to love and how to be a gentleman.
    You're the only girl in the world that I will ever need.
    Thank you for teaching me how to love and believe.

    You make my life so easy by making your life tough.
    I could give you the world for that, but that wouldn't be enough.
    Every day of my life I try to be like you,
    Because the world would be a better place with someone else like you.

  11. 9. Dear Mum

    • By Chrissie Morris
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2017

    This poem is about giving my mum the credit that she deserves. I've put her through hell in the past, and we haven't always seen eye to eye, but I wouldn't change a thing, as it has made us the best of friends. I can't ever imagine my life without her. Love you, Mum! This one's for you.

    Blessed To Have A Wonderful Mom

    There's no one in this world
    Who knows me quite like you.
    If ever I'm in need,
    You're the first one I turn to.

    You're the reason that I'm here,
    Blessed with life itself.
    You have always cared for me,
    In sickness and in health.

    I think we've grown together.
    We've laughed and we've cried,
    But no matter what's been thrown our way,
    You've always been by my side.

    Although you're my mum.
    You are also my best friend,
    A friendship I am proud to say
    Will never, ever end.

    When I have my children,
    I hope I'm half as good as you
    At being a mum and friend to them,
    No matter what they go through.

    And whenever you need me, Mum,
    My arms are open wide.
    I'm blessed that I'm the only one
    That's felt your heart beat from inside.

  12. 10. Because Of You I Am Me

    For my mother's upcoming birthday, she requested not a poem entirely about her but a poem about her children. I decided to not only describe myself but also how my mother had an effect on my life.

    Wishing Mom A Very Happy Birthday

    Mom, on your birthday, I celebrate you
    And all the wonderful things that you do.

    But if truth be told, and that must always be,
    I'm going to talk about Marvelous Me!

    Because Marvelous Me did not just come about,
    For you were my making; in that is no doubt.

    Your STRENGH gave me power to reach for new heights.
    Your WORDS gave me knowledge to learn wrong from right.

    Your PATIENCE gave me calm to face a new day.
    Your ADVICE would show me there is always a way.

    Your CAPABILITY showed me to strive for my best.
    Your SELFLESSNESS was given with all of your zest.

    You MOLDED and LED me with SUPPORT through it all,
    Even LIFTED me up when I'd happen to fall.

    So lo and behold, here I am today
    Because of your love and guiding way.

    Marvelous Me will continue to grow,
    Only because of you, this I know.

    So I celebrate you now, in this special way,
    To wish you a very Happy Birthday.

    For I wouldn't be me if it weren't you from the start.
    I love you, Mom, from the depths of my heart.

    "Phenomenal Lady" is a tribute to my mother who was mother/father to me and my siblings. She worked hard to ensure we had all the amenities necessary. I could never come up with enough adjectives to describe this dear woman. In this poem are listed a few. Hope it is enjoyed. God bless!

    A Tribute To My Dear Mother

    That Phenomenal Lady...
    That fantastically raised me
    Lived life to the fullest,
    Extended love to the cruelest;
    She always had a smile on her beautiful face.
    She was a friend to all - no matter the race;
    That wonderful, Phenomenal Lady.

    That Phenomenal Lady...
    Bestowed upon me abundant love,
    Protected me as a lion its cub;
    When I was sick or sad, she'd pray.
    Her love erased my troubles away;
    That precious, Phenomenal Lady.

    That Phenomenal Lady...
    The gem the Lord gave me,
    Was more valuable than silver or gold;
    She possessed many pearls of wisdom,
    Too numerous for one to hold;
    That remarkable, Phenomenal Lady.

    And though she is physically gone,
    She continues to live on and on;
    Within the confines of my heart,
    Memories of her will never part;
    I thank God for the mother he gave me,
    That wonderful, precious, remarkable...
    Phenomenal Lady!

    Afraid of life but looking for love.

    To the great mother I have who makes me very glad. There are so many great things about you and the way you helped me over the years, from the time I was born until now. You bring me great cheer, and I'm so glad you're here.

    Poem About A Great Mother

    My dear mother unlike any other,

    You taught me how to walk,
    And you taught me how to talk.
    You provided a roof over my head,
    And always made sure I was fed.

    You taught me morals and standards,
    The meanings of living and all about giving.
    What a wonderful, beautiful, thoughtful, intelligent mother I have,
    And you make me truly glad.

    You always go out of your way for everyone each day.
    You always listen to what I say even if I'm having a bad day.
    Whenever I've had issues
    You have always been my tissues.

    You always hugged me tight
    And loved me with all your might.
    You were always there for me when I needed someone.
    I'm so very thankful to have a mother like you,
    With your kindness and all that you do.

    All these words are perfectly true,
    And mother, I love you.
    You are a mother unlike any other.
    A little poem I wrote for you to let you know
    I love you and appreciate you every day
    In every single way.

    I wrote this to show my mother how much she means to me

    My mother is my lifeline; she is my complete savior.

    She went without when I was younger so I could have nice stuff.
    She worked herself to the bone but never did she give up.

    My mother is my lifeline; she is truly my best friend.
    She helped me through the good and bad; she stayed there till the end.
    She picked me up when I was down and wiped the tears away.
    She will be there when I need her every night and every day.

    My mother is my lifeline; she's completely a shining star.
    She has never made me feel alone; no distance is too far.
    She'll travel to the moon and back if I ask her to.
    My mother is my lifeline; this poem I wrote for you.

  17. 15. My Mom

    • By Terry W. Kraemer
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2016

    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.

    Poem About Always Needing A Mom

    I will always need my mom,
    regardless of my age.
    She's made me laugh, made me cry.
    Her love will never fade.
    She's watched me win, she's seen me lose.
    There's not a thing she wouldn't do.
    She cheers me up and keeps me grounded
    if I lose my way.
    At times, she drives me crazy,
    but my mom she'll always be.
    And even when I'm far away,
    I think, what would my mother say...
    Yes, even still today!

  18. 16. Working In Your Dungarees

    My mother is an extremely strong woman. She was forced to bury two daughters and a granddaughter. She catered to my paralyzed sister, Kelly, for 25 years. When Kelly died, the doctor called my mother and said, "I gave your daughter 6 months to live 25 years ago. There is no doubt in my mind she lived 25 years because of your undying love."

    I Love You, Ma, Happy Mother's Day

    You always did the best you could
    To make your children grow up good.
    You always worked to make ends meet,
    To give your children food to eat.

    For I saw you down on your knees,
    Working in your dungarees.
    Working hard just to get us by,
    But never once did I see you cry.

    You always sang a happy song.
    You tried to teach me right from wrong.
    But somewhere, Mom, I went astray
    And broke your heart each Mother's Day.

    You always gave me all you had,
    And in return I made you sad.
    I guess I didn't understand
    Just what it took to be a man.

    For I forgot to be your son
    And was blind to the damage done.
    But, Ma, you taught me right from wrong,
    And now I sing a different song.

    I sing a song of happiness,
    I sing a song of joy and bliss.
    I sing when I am on my knees,
    Working in my dungarees.

    I sing a song of peace and love,
    A song to you and God above.
    And I'm so proud I can finally say,
    "I love you, Ma, Happy Mother's Day."

    I wrote this to portray and appreciate my mum - not that I nor my siblings would ever really be able to. Thinking of all she's done over the years, I love her now more than ever.

    A Mother's Pricelessness

    She does her battles quietly,
    For her kids, on her knees.
    Spending many sleepless nights,
    So our lives can be with ease.

    She takes on our troubles,
    While leaving her own behind.
    In the midst of stress and strain,
    Will still manage to be kind.

    She is a calming presence,
    For acquaintances far and near.
    Will be sought to settle issues,
    Whenever hot tempers flare.

    She is that ray of sunshine,
    Making our home bright and warm.
    She is that steady anchor,
    When life seems a raging storm.

    Easy strength runs in her frame,
    Tenderness, within her core.
    No matter how little she gets,
    Always giving more and more.

    She never needs a sidekick,
    Fancy clothes really aren't her thing.
    But mummy is a superhero,
    A magnificent human being.

  20. 18. All You Are To Me

    • By Jessie Sanders
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2015

    I stayed up late at night to write this poem for my mom. She needs the support, so I thought this would help her out through her day.

    Inspiring Words For A Mother

    Thank you, Mom...
    for the love, strength, and care,
    for in this world that is quite rare.
    For being my guardian and my guide
    on those sad days when I cried.

    I'm proud of you because...
    you never gave up hope when the times were hard.
    You kept going forward through it all, yard by yard.
    You have never let others change who you are.
    You have always shown me that you're my favorite star.
    You move through the unknown with strength,
    no matter how far the length.

    I would have never been here today....
    without your motherly advice,
    without your ultimate sacrifice.
    Without the support I needed,
    I never would have succeeded.
    Without your unbounded love,
    I could never stay above.

    I just wanted you to know....
    I will always stand by your side.
    I will give back and be your guide.
    I will fight for you in the hard times,
    even if all I have are a few dimes.
    I will never lose my faith in you.
    My love for you is always true.

    I will always be there
    on those days you are hurt and sad
    and you feel everything is going bad.
    I will hold you in my arms and say
    I'm glad to be with you here today.
    When you feel you are alone,
    I will be your chaperone.

    So thank you, Mom.
    I love you so much!
    Never forget, the support and love I have for you will never diminish.
    You are one of the strongest people I know,
    so don't let anyone else's evil decisions or careless actions
    change who you are today.
    You are better than all of them and stronger in every way.

    From your son's heart
    -Jessie

  21. 19. Mother

    • By Mitchell M. Gissendanner
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    The strength of a mother is as the power of thousands who stand behind her.

    Powerful Woman Poem

    Black, beautiful, intuitive, and strong,
    The matriarch, the stabilizer, the Earth's backbone.
    From the beginning she excels, determined to survive.
    In her womb the seed of trillions through the ages she will provide.
    Unfazed by obstacles, perpetual is her drive.
    Kings, queens, all royalty alike
    are inherently in her bloodline.
    Against all odds she presses on.
    Not a moment does her love wane.
    She looks down through the annals of time
    And realizes she must maintain
    Her aura of invincibility, her spirit of strong will,
    Her disposition of I will succeed
    Regardless of the mountainous hills.
    She is black, bold and beautiful.
    Her strength personified from birth,
    She is the matriarch, she is our mother,
    the backbone of the earth

  22. 20. MOM, The Reflection Of WOW

    • By Zakia S. Jamal
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2018

    I have written my first poem at the age of 11. It's a deep and meaningful poem about a mother.

    MOM, you are the reflection of WOW.

    You change sadness into happiness.
    You change hate into love.
    You change anger into smiles.

    MOM, you are the reflection of WOW.

    You are a nurse and a cook.
    You are a teacher and a housekeeper.
    You are an organizer and planner.

    MOM, you are the reflection of WOW.

    You join broken hearts and motivate them.
    You change every tear into a smile.
    You are the brightest star in my darkest nights.

    MOM, you are the reflection of WOW.

    You love deeply.
    You care deeply.
    You inspire deeply.
    You encourage deeply.
    You motivate deeply.

    MOM, you are the reflection of WOW.

    You are a Wonder Woman
    There is no person stronger, wiser, or more dedicated
    Than a mother.

    MOM, you are the reflection of WOW.
