Mother’s Day Poems

Love you Mom

Here are a few handpicked mother’s day poems in English that one can present on this special day. For all the fathers out there, there are many mother’s day poems for kids which you can teach your children so they can recite the same for their mother:





1. Only 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 lambs in the sunny weather. Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn, Hundreds of bees in the purple clover, Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn, but only one mother the world wide over~ Unknown

2. Mother’s Love

Mother’s Love, Her 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 find a haven there~ Unknown

3. Poem

I said a mother’s day poem for you, to thank the Lord above, for blessing me with a lifetime, Of your tender-hearted love, I thanked God for the caring, You’ve shown me through the years, For the closeness, we’ve enjoyed in the time of laughter and of tears. And so I thank you from the heart, for all you’ve done for me, and I bless the Lord for giving me, the best mother there could be.





4. Wonderful Mother

God made a wonderful mother

A mother who never grows old




He made her smile of the sunshine

And he moulded her heart out of pure gold





In her eyes, he placed bright shining stars

In her cheeks fair, roses you see




God made a wonderful mother

And he gave that dear mother to me





5. God’s Masterpiece is Mother

God took pieces of everything wonderful to make moms. 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 and 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-Herbert Farnham




6. Mother o’ Mine

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, 0 mother o’ mine! By Rudyard Kipling




7. A Mother’s Day Poem

Another Mother’s Day is here, Bringing joy and pleasures new, on this special day, Mother dear, I want to remember you

I cannot give you costly gifts, and I’ve told you this before, no matter what I give to you, you give back much, much more


I’m giving you a pure, sweet rose, gathered in the early morn, this rose you planted in my heart, the day that I was born

In kindly, loving thoughts of you, and with the faith you still impart, the rose I give to you today, Is the love that’s in my heart.

8. Dear Mom

Dear Mom…

Since the day I was small, till the day I became tall


Since I began understanding things, till the day I got my own wings

Your love has never fallen short, you have been my only support

I want to hold you tight and hug you, I just want to say Thank you

~ Unknown


9. God’s Gift

My Mother is a special gift, a special gift that God gave to me.

I’d be lost and lonely without her if God took her away you see.

I love her so very much, that I couldn’t bear to live without her healing touch.

Thank-you God for giving me such a loving Mother, for I wouldn’t want to be a part of no other- By Melanie Reid


10. Thank You Mom

I know how often I took you for granted when I was growing up. I always assumed you’d be there, when I needed you… and you always were.

But I never really thought about what that meant, till I got older and began to realize how often your time and energy were devoted to me.

So now, for all the times I didn’t say it before, thank you, Mom…I love you so very much!

2. Mother’s Day Song (Song by: Tom Gardener)

I don’t remember much about when I was born

But I know you took care of me all day long

I see photos of me making mess after mess

Mother, whenever did you get any rest?

I’m glad you’re my mother and I’m glad I’m your child

I’m sorry if sometimes I act way too wild

But I know you wouldn’t have it any other way

I love you, Mom. Happy Mother’s Day!

I managed to grow and you helped all the way

From diapers to bottles to grade after grade

Though I don’t say this often I wish I did

After all mom, I am only a kid

You know I think you’re pretty so don’t take this wrong

But you look kind of tired pretty much all day long

You drive me all over like a New York City cab

By night time you look like you had it

Now that I’m older I look back and see

All that you did just because of me

You gave up a lot you know I know that now

I’ll do the same for my kids someday

I’m glad you’re my mother and I’m glad I’m your child

I’m sorry if sometimes I acted too wild

But I know you wouldn’t have it any other way

I love you, Mom. Happy Mother’s Day!!

3. Number One Mum!

Many songs around on love it’s true,

But here’s one just for you.

A faithful lass and one so nice,

From what I’ve seen only one vice,

Her wee ones and her husband that’s me,

The one vice in a girl so lovely.

A head turner still is she,

All her men as proud as can be.

So Mum on the day to remember,

On you, we all concur,

That indeed you are the sum,

Of the formula that makes you the Number One Mum!

By Karl Henderson

4. To My Mother

Today’s your natal day, Sweet flowers I bring;

Mother, accept, I pray, My offering.

And may you happy live, And long us bless;

Receiving as you give, Great happiness

– by Christina Rossetti

5. Make a card for your Mum

Make a card for your Mum, for your Mum, for your Mum,

Make a card for your Mum, It’s Mother’s Day!

Pick some flowers for your Mum, for your Mum, for your Mum,

Pick some flowers for your Mum, It’s Mother’s Day!

Tell your Mum you love her so, love her so, love her so!

Tell your Mum you love her so, it’s Mother’s Day!

Give your Mum a great big kiss, great big kiss, great big kiss,

Give your Mum a great big kiss, It’s Mother’s Day!

6. Five Pretty Mommies (Original Author Unknown: Sung to: “Five Little Ducks”)

Five pretty mommies I once knew, Fat ones, skinny ones, tall ones, too,

But the one in the middle that belongs to me…

I love her and she loves me!

Down to the grocery we did go, Wibble – wobble, wibble – wobble, to and fro,

But the one in the middle that belongs to me, I love her and she loves me!

7. I Want a Mom- Artist: Cyndi Lauper

I want a mom that will last forever

I want a mom to make it all better

I want a mom that will last forever

I want a mom who loves me whatever

I want a mom to take my hand

And make me feel like a holiday

A mom to tuck me in at night

And chase the monsters away

I want a mom to read me stories

And sing a lullaby

And if I have a bad dream, to hold me when I cry

Oh, I want a mom that will last forever

I want a mom to make it all better

I want a mom that will last forever

I want a mom that will love me whatever, forever

And when she says to me that she’ll always be there

To watch and protect me, I don’t have to be scared

O, and when she says I will always love you,

I don’t need to worry ‘cause I’ll know that it’s true

I want a mom when I get lonely, to take the time to play

A mom who can be a friend and find a rainbow when it grey

I want a mom to read me stories and sing a lullaby

And if I find a bad dream, to hold me when I cry

8. A Song for Mothers

Oh, my mother has a special name. It’s M-O-M-M-Y!

My mother has a special name. It’s M-O-M-M-Y!

Oh, I love to hug her every day.

And when I kiss her, I will say, Mommy, mommy, I love you!

I L-O-V-E Y-O-U!

9. Song

If I could give you diamonds for each tear you cried for me

If I could give you sapphires for each truth you’ve helped me see

If I could give you rubies for the heartache that you’ve known

If I could give you pearls for the wisdom that you’ve shown

Then you’ll have a treasure, mother, that would mount up to the skies

That would almost match, the sparkle in your kind and loving eyes

But I have no pearls no diamonds, as I’m sure you’re well aware

So I’ll give you gifts more precious, my devotion, love and care

10. Mommy Loves Me (To the tune of: Clementine)

Mommy loves me

Mommy loves me

Mommy loves me

This I know.

Mommy loves me

Mommy loves me

Every day she tells me so.

Mommy loves me

Mommy loves me

For the Bible tells me so.
