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 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.

  7. A Mother's Love Is True Love

    • By Leotha Brown II
    • Published: February 2006

    A mother's love is a wonderful love packaged from heaven with special care.
    A mother's love is like no other love that you can compare.
    A mother's love is purified by angels and flows directly from her soul.
    A mother's love is justified by God, and by his hands he created the mold.

    I watched my Mom fill out an application.
    I looked at the line that asks about past professions.

    To write down what she's been, to cover it all.
