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.

    You are the sunlight in my day.

    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.

    Poem About Arthritis

    To the strongest woman I will ever know.

  7. Single Mom

    • By Tiara S. Winston
    • Published: February 2006
    Poem About Being A Single Parent

    I sit and look out upon the life of a single parent
    I hear the single mother's selfless cries of loneliness for her child in the still darkness of the night
    I see the mother awaking her child with a playful game of peek-a-boo with a smile as warm and bright as the afternoon sun at its apex of the day
    I mark the loving kindness she expresses toward her son even with the all the trials and tribulations this world puts upon her...

    Picture

    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.
