Mothers Day Poems

Mothers Day Poems express the love and joy for that special woman in our lives. A mother, no matter what age, never stops being a mom. She is there for solace, grief, happiness, counsel, and forever love.

Make sure you tell your mom just how much she is loved and appreciated not just on mother's day but throughout your life. After all, we only have one mum!



The Mother
Robert William Service (1874 - 1958)

There will be a singing in your heart,
There will be a rapture in your eyes;
You will be a woman set apart,
You will be so wonderful and wise.
You will sleep, and when from dreams you start,
As of one that wakes in Paradise,
There will be a singing in your heart,
There will be a rapture in your eyes.

There will be a moaning in your heart,
There will be an anguish in your eyes;
You will see your dearest ones depart,
You will hear their quivering good-byes.
Yours will be the heart-ache and the smart,
Tears that scald and lonely sacrifice;
There will be a moaning in your heart,
There will be an anguish in your eyes.

There will come a glory in your eyes,
There will come a peace within your heart;
Sitting 'neath the quiet evening skies,
Time will dry the tear and dull the smart.
You will know that you have played your part;
Yours shall be the love that never dies:
You, with Heaven's peace within your heart,
You, with God's own glory in your eyes.


Mom Poems
How dear does mother hold
Her bonny little one?
Just as dear as the jostling clovers
Hold the merry sun.

Tribute To A Mother
In offering a tribute to mother today,
There is joy that we cannot express
Her kindness and love we can never repay,
Though we strive to do always our best.

Mom Knows Best
How many buttons are missing today?
Nobody knows but Mother.
How many playthings are strewn in her way?
Nobody knows but Mother.

Mom, you'll always be,
Someone special to me.
Someone who'd come on home,
So I wouldn't have to be alone.

For all the things you have done
For all the sacrifices you made
For all the love you shared

To recognize you

Number 1 Mom
Poet: B. Rivers, © 2012

No matter how old I am
I always remember what you taught me
The values, the rights and wrongs
Have guided me through many a day

Thank you Mom, for all you do
Thank you Mom, for all you've done
Always remember in my books
You will be my Number 1.

For Moms
Sometimes we get busy in our lives each day,
We neglect to tell people things we should say.
As I pondered these thoughts with you in mind,
I realized how important it was for me to find the time.

Mothers Day Is Every Day
Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2012

Mother's Day is but once a year.
A normality that isn't right.
Mothers should be celebrated every day,
This is up to you to be made right.

Mothers have given each of us,
So much to be grateful for.
They've given, went without and did all they can,
To make sure we had the chance to soar.

And this is why one day a year,
Just isn't remotely enough.
Each and every day of the year they deserve,
Breakfast in bed and their pillows fluffed.

If I know my mother this would not be allowed,
And she'd say nothing should be done.
So a little thank you's and lots of hugs and kisses,
Every day shows you appreciate your Mom.


You Only Get One Mother
Hundreds of stars in the pretty sky.
Hundreds of shells on the shore together.
Hundreds of birds that go singing by.
Hundreds of bees in the sunny weather.
        Reminders that You Only Get One Mother

The angels, whispering to one another,
Can find, among their burning terms of love,
None so devotional as that of "Mother,"

Mothers Day is a day to honor your Mom. It is a day that is celebrated around the world. No matter where you live in the world, the one thing we all have in common is that we all have a Mother. In North America, it is celebrated and recognized on the second Sunday in May.

As Abraham Lincoln once said,
"All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother."

As you read the poems we hope they remind you of how special Moms are. We sometimes take our Mom for granted, and no matter what they are always there for us. You don't have to wait for Mother's Day to tell your Mom how much you love and appreciate her.
