What is the best poem for Mother’s Day?
There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the best poem for mother’s day will vary from person to person. However, many people agree that a poem expressing the love a child has for their mom is a great choice for this special occasion.
The poet can share what they think are great family quotes, and discuss how they would like to be remembered by their children in the future. Family members should have some ideas on what they might want to get their mom as a gift – whether it’s flowers, jewelry, or something else.
How do you write a Mother’s Day Poem?
There are many different ways to write a Mother’s Day poem. One way is to start by thinking about all the things your mother has done for you over the years. You can list off all the things she’s cooked for you, all the bedtime stories she’s read to you, and everything she’s done to make you feel loved.
Another way to write a Mother’s Day poem is to think about how your mother has impacted your life. You can talk about how she’s always been there for you, even when you were feeling down, or how she always seems to know just what to say when you need some encouragement.
Whatever way you choose to write your Mother’s Day poem, be sure to include three words that are the truest of true: love, care, and support. These words will remind your mother just how much she means to you!
1. Start with Mom’s name
2. Write a line about how much you love her
Ex. I love you so much, Mom
You mean the world to me
I don’t know what I’d do without you
3. Mention something special that she’s done for you
She has always been there for me, even when no one else was. She has done so many things for me that I can’t even begin to list them all. But the thing I am most grateful for is how she has always been there for me emotionally. She is my best friend, and I don’t know what I would do without her.
4. End with another line about how much you love her
Ex. “Your love for me is as strong as a rock
I feel so blessed that you are my mom
I don’t know how I would have made it without you
I love you so much, more than you could ever know”
Famous Poems About Mothers
Mother’s Day is a special occasion for children to express and appreciate the love of their mother. Kids can send mom a beautiful and touching “mom poem” they wrote or give her one of the following short poems on mother’s day.
1. Excerpt from “Mother, A Cradle to Hold Me” by Maya Angelou
“Mother, I have learned enough now
To know I have learned nearly nothing.
On this day
When mothers are being honored,
Let me thank you
That my selfishness, ignorance, and mockery
Did not bring you to
Discard me like a broken doll
Which had lost its favor.
I thank you that
You still find something in me
To cherish, to admire and to love.
I thank you, Mother.
I love you.”
Poem source: MOTHER, A CRADLE TO HOLD ME
2. “Mother to Son” by Langston Hughes
“Well, son, I’ll tell you:
Life for me ain’t been no crystal stair. It’s had tacks in it,
And boards torn up,
And places with no carpet on the floor— Bare.
But all the time
I’se been a-climbin’ on,
And reachin’ landin’s,
And turnin’ corners,
And sometimes goin’ in the dark
Where there ain’t been no light.
So boy, don’t you turn back.
Don’t you set down on the steps
’Cause you finds it’s kinder hard.
Don’t you fall now—
For I’se still goin’, honey,
I’se still climbin’,
And life for me ain’t been no crystal stair.”
Source: The Collected Works of Langston Hughes (University of Missouri Press (BkMk Press), 2002)
3. Excerpt from “Mom” by Nikki Giovanni
the last time I was home
to see my mother we kissed
and unpleasantries pulled a warm
comforting silence around
us and read separate books
I remember the first time
I consciously saw her
we were living in a three-room
apartment on burns avenue
Source: The Collected Poems of Nikki Giovanni (2003)
4. “Mother o’ Mine” by Rudyard Kipling
If I were hanged on the highest hill,
Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!
I know whose love would follow me still,
Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!
If I were drowned in the deepest sea,
Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!
I know whose tears would come down to me,
Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!
If I were damned of body and soul,
I know whose prayers would make me whole,
Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!
5. “A Mother’s Love” by Helen Steiner Rice
A Mother’s love is something
that no one can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may,
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away,
It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
6. “Mother” by Lola Ridge
Your love was like moonlight
turning harsh things to beauty,
so that little wry souls
reflecting each other obliquely
as in cracked mirrors…
beheld in your luminous spirit
their own reflection,
transfigured as in a shining stream,
and loved you for what they are not.
You are less an image in my mind
I see you in gleams
pale as star-light on a gray wall…
evanescent as the reflection of a white swan
shimmering in broken water.
7. “Mother, Summer, I” by Philip Larkin
My mother, who hates thunderstorms,
Holds up each summer day and shakes
It out suspiciously, lest swarms
Of grape-dark clouds are lurking there;
But when the August weather breaks
And rains begin, and brittle frost
Sharpens the bird-abandoned air,
Her worried summer look is lost,
And I her son, though summer-born
And summer-loving, nonetheless
Am easier when the leaves are gone
Too often summer days appear
Emblems of perfect happiness
I can’t confront: I must await
A timeless bold, less rich, less clear:
An autumn more appropriate.
8. “Sonnets Are Full of Love” by Christina Rossetti
Sonnets are full of love, and this my time
Has many sonnets: so here now shall be
One sonnet more, a love sonnet, from me
To her whose heart is my heart’s quiet home,
To my first Love, my Mother, on whose knee
I learnt love-lore that is not troublesome;
Whose service is my special dignity,
And she is my loadstar while I go and come.
And so because you love me, and because
I love you, Mother, I have woven a wreath
Of rhymes wherewith to crown your honored name:
In you not fourscore years can dim the flame
Of love, whose blessed glow transcends the laws
Of time and change and mortal life and death.
9. “To My Mother” by Edgar Allan Poe
Because I feel that, in the Heavens above,
The angels, whispering to one another,
Can find, among their burning terms of love,
None so devotional as that of “Mother,”
Therefore by that dear name I long have called you—
You who are more than mother unto me,
And fill my heart of hearts, where Death installed you
In setting my Virginia’s spirit free.
My mother—my own mother, who died early,
Was but the mother of myself; but you
Are mother to the one I loved so dearly,
And thus are dearer than the mother I knew
By that infinity with which my wife
Was dearer to my soul than its soul-life.

A mother’s love will always be there for you to hold on to, It is something that nothing else can ever replace. Here are some poems about mother’s love.
10. “A Gift From God” by Catherine Pulsifer
A gift from God is my Mother’s love
It is so real I know it is sent from above.
No matter what I say or do
My Mom’s love is so true.
It is shown in many different ways
It doesn’t matter the time of day
She is always there for me
Mom’s love you can see.
I am so thankful each and every day
For my Mother I do pray
Keep her safe every day
Her love for me is precious in every way.
11. “Love Forever” by Catherine Pulsifer
My children are my pride and joy
I love my girl and my boy.
The love I have for them
Is worth more than any gem.
For their happiness I would give
My life so they could live
They have brought such happiness to me
I love them more than they can see.
A mother’s love I now understand
It is forever and not a demand
When that baby is born
You find meaning life takes on.
While love takes on many forms
And love will see you through many storms
The love a mother has for her child
Is forever and never wild.
12. “With You As You Grow” by Catherine Pulsifer
The only love better than a Mother’s love
Is the unconditional love of God above.
He created mothers with care
To give us love to share.
A Mother’s love is always there
A Mother always cares
Never doubt your Mom is near
She is with you throughout your years.
She watches over you each day
She watches you as you play
And at night she puts you to bed
And kisses you gently on the head.
We grow and think we know it all
There are times with Mom we do brawl
But she never gives up on you
She loves you. That is so true.
You can see Mom’s love is a lot like God above
With attributes as Him above
She will always love you so
She is with you as you grow.
13. “My Love For My Child” by Julie Hebert
My love for my child is unbelievable,
I never knew I could love so much,
Too see her every day is a blessing in underway,
Hard to believe love could be in a single touch.
I know I will love her forever,
Nothing will ever change that.
My love for her is true, and will never be blue,
Cause our love is nothing you’d poke fun at!
14. “A Mother’s Plea” by Mary C. Plummer
Now, that I am old and gray with age,
Forsake me not, my child,
For ’twas thy mother’s tender care.
That kept you all the while.
Cast me not into a corner,
And say, “Stay there, your time is o’er,”
For mother’s love will ne’er diminish,
Each day she loves you more and more.
Then, to my fleeting years be patient,
For time has had its way with me,
And soon beneath the sod I’ll slumber;
Yes, there to spend eternity.
15. “My Mother” by Tiny Stoufer
Through good luck or woe,
The sweetest pal I know,
The smile she gave
Made me good and brave,
When I was small she rocked me there,
Now she sits alone in that rocking chair,
Her teardrops fall for her babies grown tall,
She’s still my silver-haired pal,
16. “The Truest Friend” by Washington Irving
A mother is the truest friend we have,
When trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us
When adversity takes the place of prosperity
When friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us
When troubles thicken around us,
Still will she cling to us,
And endeavor by her kind precepts
And counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness,
And cause peace to return to our hearts.
Short Mother’s Day Poems from Child
These poems are written from a child’s perspective and would be lovely written in a card to their mother on Mother’s Day.
17. My mother is the one
Who held me when I was scared
She would calm my fears
And make them disappear
I love her for being strong
And always being there
For everything, I thank you, Mom
Happy Mother’s Day!
18. “Mothers Day Is Every Day” by Julie Hebert
Mother’s Day is only 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.
19. “Happy Mother’s Day To A Special Mom” by Catherine Pulsifer
Happy Mother’s Day to You
May it be happy through and through
I want to say I love you so
Mom, I hope this poem will show:
How much you are loved and appreciated to
I am so thankful for all you do
You have positively influenced my life
And are always there when I face strife.
No words can ever express
How as a Mom you are a success
I love you today and tomorrow too
From the bottom of my heart, I love you!
20. “You My Mom” by Catherine Pulsifer
For all the things you have done
For all the sacrifices you made
For all the love you shared
For all the work you did
I will always appreciate you
I will always respect you
I will always look up to you
I will always love you
You, my Mom, are great
You, my Mom, are the best
You, my Mom, there is no other
You, my Mom, are a blessing
So on this special day
To recognize you
I say Thank You Mom
For all you do.
21. “Love You Forever by Catherine Pulsifer”
Mother, you are always full of cheer
To us, you are so special and dear
Enjoy this day set apart to recognize you
A day to say thank you for all you do
You deserve only the best
A day for fun and a day for rest
We hope you feel our love for you
We love you forever, that is so true!!
22. “Number 1 Mom” by B. Rivers
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.
23. “My Mother” by Franklin Bell
Beautiful is my mother,
And sweet as she can be,
I love her very much,
And I know that she loves me.
She has my dinner ready
When I come home at noon;
I’ll try not to say a bad word,
For Mother’s Day is soon.
Here is my handprint,
Five fingers in all,
Outside they are short,
But the middle is tall.
You will find them on windows,
You can find them on the wall,
They will make a big mess,
For something so small.
One day I will grow,
And leave them no more,
My handprints will be missed,
Of that I am sure.
So here is one now,
That you can’t wipe away,
My present to you,
This Mother’s Day. – unknown

25. “My Heart” by Sharlynn N. Manning
She’s always been there for me.
Just talking to her can make me happy.
She tells me of the hard times she’s been through
In hopes that I won’t go through them too.
She’s an independent woman of stature and grace.
She has beautiful eyes and a lovely face,
An audacious strength from deep inside.
In her I know I can confide.
She’s my guardian angel who’ll always be
A very special part of me.
She takes pride in caring for her kin.
She gives us hope and things to believe in.
If I didn’t have her there for me,
I wouldn’t be half the woman I turned out to be.
I Love You, Mom
26. “The One” by Crystal R. Adame
The one who brought me down to earth
And held me every day.
The one who gracefully gave me birth
And said, I love you in every way.
The one who taught me everything,
Like how to crawl and walk.
The one who taught me how to sing
After learning how to talk.
The one who told me, stay in school
And always play nice.
The one who told me, keep it cool,
And gave me good advice.
The one who taught me how to read
And how to do my math.
The one who taught me how to bead.
And told me to take a bath.
The one who lectured, school before a man
And to love one another.
Believe me that this woman
Can be no one but my Mother!
27. “This Angel To Whom I Was Given” by Megan Cummings
One day I was given to an Angel in disguise
Who’s beautiful, yet so fragile wings were tattered beyond recognize
But this Angel to whom I was given, what a heart of gold had she
Who had yet to realize how important she would be
This Angel to whom I was given is so selfless, so giving as can be
Who shares her gift of mercy so that others may be free
This Angel to whom I was given is so faithful, so true
Who would lay down her own life if it meant salvation of one or a few
This Angel to whom I was given is so thoughtful, so kind
Whose never-ending love and prayers are the reason I’ll be fine
This Angel to whom I was given is a blessing, my hero all the time
I am so proud to call her Mom, this beautiful Angel of mine
28. “My Angel Is My Mother” by Breana D. Greathouse
My angel is a woman who walks upon the earth,
She shows me my potential and all that I am worth.
When I am sick she heals me and makes me feel all-better,
and makes sure that in times of need that we are all together.
When we get into all kinds of fusses in our life,
My angel comes out strong as a mother and a wife.
My angel has raised me to be good and kind,
and makes sure that I have a strong and intelligent mind,
My angel is my guardian.
my teacher and my friend,
but most of all my mother till the very end.
29. “My Hero” by Colleen R. Straight
My hero is my mother.
She alone raised me, my two sisters, and my brother.
I really do love her,
And I will always and forever.
Nobody else could relate
Or even try to imitate,
Because my mom is too great.
Someone I appreciate.
My mom is nice and kind.
Someone like her is hard to find.
She helps me be my best and shine.
My mom is the greatest mom of all time.
To her I would like to say,
Thank you for being there every day,
For helping me find my way.
I want to be like you someday.
30. “I Love You” by Trisha Cain
You are more than a mother,
You are more than just another,
You are my best friend.
From day one, you’ve been by my side,
And you’ve always told me to never hide.
You said you’d always be there,
and you’d always care.
You told me you’d love me forever,
And not a day goes by where I don’t hear those 3 little words,
I Love You.
And I want you to know that this much is true,
Even though I’m not a little kid anymore
I love you.
31. “Unconditional Mom” by Joanna Fuchs
Mom, you’re everything a mom should be,
Your love shines bright in everything I see.
You’re parent, friend, supporter, all for me,
You give your sweet love unconditionally.
You always do what’s best for me, I know;
You mentored me to help me learn and grow.
Your kindness, caring, nurturing always show;
That’s why I love, respect and admire you so.
There aren’t enough words to say what I should say,
So now I’ll wish you Happy Mother’s Day!

33. “A Dandelion for My Mother” by Jean Nordhaus
How I loved those spiky suns,
rooted stubborn as childhood
in the grass, tough as the farmer’s
big-headed children—the mats
of yellow hair, the bowl-cut fringe.
How sturdy they were and how
slowly they turned themselves into galaxies, domes of ghost stars
barely visible by day, pale
cerebrums clinging to life
on tough green stems. Like you.
Like you, in the end. If you were here,
I’d pluck this trembling globe to show
how beautiful a thing can be
a breath will tear away.
34. “Mother” by Nikita Gill
The water of her womb, your first home
The body she pulled apart to welcome you to the world.
The spirit in you helped grow with all she knew.
The heart that she gave you when yours fell apart.
You are her soft miracle.
So she gave you her eyes to see the best in the worst.
You carry your mother in your eyes.
Make her proud of all she watches you do.

37. “Land” by Nayyirah Waheed
my first country,
The first place I ever lived.
38. “To My Mother” by Christina Rossetti
Sweet flowers I bring:
Mother, accept, I pray
And may you happy live,
And long us bless:
Receiving as you give
39. “A Mother’s Day” by Carol Matthews
A Mother gives never-ending Love.
She never feels that she has given enough.
For you she will always do her best.
Constantly working, there’s no time to rest.
A Mother is there when things go wrong.
A hug and a kiss to help us along.
Always there when we need her near.
Gently wipe our eyes when we shed a tear.
So on this day shower your Mother with Love.
Gifts and presents are nice but that is not enough.
Give your Mother a day to have some peace of mind.
Be gentle, be good, be helpful, and be kind.

46. “A True Angel” by George W. Zellars
A mother is special; she’s more than a friend.
Whenever you need her, she’ll give you a hand.
She’ll lead you and guide you in all that you do,
Try all that she can just to see you get through.
Good times and bad times, she’s there for it all.
Say head up, be proud, and always stand tall.
She’ll love you through quarrels and even big fights,
or heart-to-heart chats on cold lonely nights.
My mother’s the greatest that I’ve ever known.
I think God made my mother like He’d make his own.
A praiser, a helper, an encourager too,
nothing in this world that she wouldn’t do.
To help us succeed, she does all that she can,
raised a young boy now into a man.
I want to say thank you for all that you do.
Please always know, Mom, that I love you.
47. “Thank You, Mom” by Miller Mottla
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.
48. “Mother’s Day” by Kody Welch
Mom, I know we’ve been through a lot,
But to this day I have not forgot
All the things you have done for me.
Opening my eyes and letting me see
All the rights and wrongs in life

To know your love is a great feeling.
Thinking of it helps me with dealing,
And on this special day,

That I love you in each and every way.

55. “You Know Me” by Holly Giffers
Mom you know the worst of me,
My weaknesses and follies,
I know you’ve seen me poop my pants
and cut the heads off the dollies.
You know all my most embarrassing moments,
You know that I’m a nut,
So what can I do to repay your love…
…and make sure you keep your mouth shut!?
56. We Celebrate You
“We celebrate you today
We love you and appreciate you
For all the things you’ve taught us
We have discovered that life isn’t simple
And it doesn’t come with a manual
And that is why we have mothers
Happy Mother’s Day” – unknown
“I had chocolates for you
But they needed inspecting
So I ate them one by one
Not what I was expecting
They didn’t taste rotten, they were actually fine
Chocolaty and sweet, tasted divine
I’m sorry mom, maybe next year will be better
Instead of chocolates, I’ll get you a sweater” – unknown

63. “Motherhood” by Helen Steiner Rice
The dearest gifts that heaven holds,
The very finest, too,
Were made into one pattern
That was perfect, sweet, and true;
The Angels smiled, well-pleased, and said:
“Compared to all the others,
This pattern is so wonderful
Let’s use it just for Mothers!”
And through the years a mother has been
All that’s sweet and good
For there’s one bit of God and love,
In all true Motherhood.
64. A Mother’s Love
“There is no love, like a mother’s love,
no stronger bond on earth…
like the precious bond that comes from God,
to a mother, when she gives birth.
A mother’s love is forever strong,
never changing for all time…
and when her children need her most,
a mother’s love will shine.
God bless these special mothers,
God bless them every one…
for all the tears and heartache,
and for the special work they’ve done.
When her days on earth are over,
a mother’s love lives on…
through many generations,
with God’s blessings on each one.
Be thankful for our mothers,
for they love with a higher love…
from the power God has given,
and the strength from up above.” – anonymous
65. Mother’s Love
“Mother’s love is like an island,
In life’s ocean vast and wide
A peaceful, quiet shelter
From the wind, the rain, the tide.
‘Tis bound on the north by Hope,
By Patience on the west,
By tender Counsel on the south
And on the east by Rest.
Above it like a beacon light
Shine Faith, and Truth, and Prayer;
And thro’ the changing scenes of life
I found a haven there.” – anonymous
66. Mother’s Love
“There are times when only a Mother’s love
Can understand our tears,
Can soothe our disappoints
And calm all of our fears.
There are times when only a Mother’s love
Can share the joy we feel,
When something we’ve dreamed about
Quite suddenly it is real.
There are times when only a Mother’s faith
Can help us on life’s way,
And inspire in us the confidence
We need it from day to day.
For a Mother’s heart and a Mother’s faith
And a Mother’s steadfast love,
Were fashioned by the Angels
And sent from God above.” – unknown
67. “God’s Masterpiece” by Herbert Farnham
God took the fragrance of a flower,
The majesty of a tree,
The gentleness of morning dew,
The calm of a quiet sea.
The beauty of the twilight hour,
The soul of a starry night,
The laughter of a rippling brook,
The grace of a bird in flight.
Then God fashioned from these things,
A creation like no other,
And when his masterpiece was through,
He called it simply – Mother.
