Mother's Day Poems

My Mother

I've met hundreds of Mothers over the years
And one thing I've found to be true
There is no mother, near or far
That holds a candle to YOU

You were Mother, Father, Counselor, Friend
And never once did I hear you complain
That you never had enough time for yourself
I think I would have gone insane

The fussing, the fighting, the "He pulled my hair"
"I want this", "I want that", "Why can't I do what I want?"
With patience you stuck to your guns and your rules
And never showed the stress when we fought

I look back at those years when we didn't have much
Garage sales to buy most of our clothes
Making Macrame' hangers to buy he week's meat
And three kids covered with dirt head to toe

We cleaned ourselves up, always made it to church
With your help we presented quite well
If there's anyone now that questions the job that you do
Well quite frankly they can just go to... (um...)

Thank you for all the hard work you put in
To forming three very unique kids
If there's one thing I hope for in all of the world
It's that I'll do half as well as you did

I love you Mom.

My Nannie

There are so many grandmothers, we all have one or more I guess
There are Mima's, Granny's, Grandma's and such
But only one that can ever be called "My Nannie"
She's MY Grandmother and She is the best

Her eyes twinkle brighter than old Saint Nick
Her smile is as warm as the sun
And if there's a person on Earth I wish more to be like
I know right now she is the one

My Nannie has a halo that no one can see
She has wings so glorious too
No one can see them but me I believe
But I assure you it's no less true

She never is cross, always happy to see us
Never has an expectation big or small
She just wraps her wonderful arms around you
And looks over every one of our faults

My Nannie is forgiving and loyal and kind
She'll do anything for you she can
My Nannie is such a great person you see
Every thing's alright with a touch of her hand

I have to say that the one problem she has
Is that she can't see how great she has been
My Nannie can't see how special she is
She' My Angel, My Nannie, My Friend.

My Mother-In-Law

There's another woman in my husband' life
That he's loved even longer than me
She has held him and loved him as the years have gone by
And she's part of our life for eternity

She taught him to be loyal, she taught him to be kind
She helped him see right from wrong
She's a very special woman, my Mother-In-Law
And the list of things she's done for us is long

She's been there when we had trouble to give us a hand
She watched the kids without ever a grumble
This mother is loving and gentle and kind
And has always been very humble

She doesn't ask for anything
She gives more than she gets I am sure
My Mother-In-Law's a wonderful grandmother too
And her love for the kids is so pure

My Mother-In-Law isn't thanked enough
Her gestures so oft' overlooked
So today I want her to know in her heart
She's much more than a wonderful cook

She taught us lessons in life we wouldn't otherwise learn
And helped us see past all the mess
She's very dear to our hearts, this Mother to Brian
Having her in our life, we know we are blessed.

We would love to add your mother's day poems.  Post them or email them to and let us know whether we can use your name or not!  Thanks, and Happy Mother's Day!

  1. my mother is a rose
    though she doesnt know it from her nose
    which is that those who never smell a rose
