Poems About Moms

Since today is mother’s day, I thought it would be fitting to post a few poems about moms.

What is a Mother

What is a Mother?-
She’s someone who shares
In all of your problems,
Your joys and your cares-

Someone who gives you
Right from the start
The warmth and the loves
Of her motherly heart * * *

Someone who’s loyal
And helpful and dear
And seems to grow more so
As year follows year * * *

Life is much brighter
And happier, too
Because there are Mothers-
Mothers like you.

~ J. Kyler McManus ~

Mothers Are Special

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.

The Little Things

It is the little things that count
And give a mother pleasure –
The things her children bring to her
Which they so richly treasure…
The picture that is smudged a bit
With tiny fingerprints,
The colored rock, the lightning bugs,
The sticky peppermints;
The ragged, bright bouquet of flowers
A child brings, roots and all –
These things delight a mother’s heart
Although they seem quite small.
A mother can see beauty
In the very smallest thing
For there’s a little bit of heaven
In a small child’s offering.
