Now, let us have a look at some poems for beautiful mothers on Mother’s Day

1.  Super Mom

Mom, you're a wonderful mother,

So gentle, yet so strong.

The many ways you show you care

Always make me feel I belong.

You're patient when I'm foolish;

You give guidance when I ask;

It seems you can do most anything;

You're the master of every task.

You're a dependable source of comfort;

You're my cushion when I fall.

You help in times of trouble;

You support me whenever I call.

I love you more than you know;

You have my total respect.

If I had my choice of mothers,

You'd be the one I'd select!

By Joanna Fuchs

2.  What "Mother" Means

"Mother" is such a simple word,

But to me there’s meaning seldom heard.

For everything I am today,

My mother’s love showed me the way.

I’ll love my mother all my days,

For enriching my life in so many ways.

She set me straight and then set me free,

And that’s what the word "mother" means to me.

Thanks for being a wonderful mother, Mom!

By Karl Fuchs

3. Mothers are the gardeners

Of wind-blown wildflowers.

They water them with happy tears,

Happy with them many years,

Even as the hours.

Ring with sweet, sad melodies.

Sighing through their bowers.

By Nicholas Gordon

4. M-O-T-H-E-R

"M" is for the million things she gave me,

"O" means only that she's growing old,

"T" is for the tears she shed to save me,

"H" is for her heart of purest gold;

"E" is for her eyes, with love-light shining,

"R" means right, and right she'll always be,

Put them all together, they spell "MOTHER,"

A word that means the world to me.

By Howard Johnson

5. 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 wide world over.

By George Cooper

7. No Love like 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.

By Jill Lemming

7. Mother

God made a wonderful mother,

A mother who never grows old;

He made her smile of the sunshine,

And He molded her heart 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.

By Pat O'Reilly
