Heartfelt Poems for Mom on Mother's Day

Mother's Day comes once a year. Some think that if they buy their mother flowers and a card that they have fulfilled their obligation for the rest of the year. If we would only comprehended a small part of what our mothers did for us as children. How they would literally die for us if needed. We would realize that one day is not sufficient. Mother's Day should be a time to remind us that we have been neglecting our duties as sons and daughters. This relationship is sacred let us honor our mothers.

  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?

    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. 5. How Grateful I Would Be To Have Just One More Day

    I always wish for one more day. It hurts so much to lose a loved one. My mother was my everything, and she always inspired me to write. I miss you so much, Mom.

  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.

    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,

    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.

    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.

    I love to write and wanted to write something special for my mom and for all the other mothers in the world. I am a mother of three, and as I look at my kids, it takes me back to when I was a young girl with my mom. I cherish her and am very blessed I had a mother like her.

    A mother loves right from the start,
    No matter if her children are near or far apart.
    A mother gives never-ending love.
    She gives us comfort and peace like a beautiful dove.

  17. 15. A Mother's Love

    • By Yasmine Ellaz
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2018

    I have always cherished my mother's love. She has pushed me to do better and become a strong person. My mother is my best friend, and after the disappointment and sorrow in which I have caused her in my past, she truly deserves to be recognized as the most inspiring parent. I want my story to capture the hearts of all the beautiful mothers out there who have held their daughters' hands throughout the hardship, agony, and darkness. A mother's love can never be replaced. We love you all dearly.

    Mum, thank you for keeping me close to your heart.
    Thank you for never allowing me to fall apart.
    Thank you for holding me up for all these years,
    But most of all, thank you for drying my tears.

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

    You kissed my boo-boos when I fooled around.

  19. 17. 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."

    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.

    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.

    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.

    A child writes of the qualities that make her mother great.

    And even when she's not that happy, she always takes time out to care.
    I know of a woman whose beauty is that of a queen.
    But she continues to teach us that beauty doesn't mean a thing.
