If I were damned of body and soul,

I know whose prayers would make me whole,

Mother o’ mine, O 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!

-Rudyard Kipling, “Mother O’ Mine”

“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.”

-Edgar Allan Poe

You have told me

All the things

I need to hear

Before I knew

I needed to hear them

To be unafraid

Of all the things

I used to fear,

Before I knew

I shouldn’t fear them.

-Lang Leav, “A Thank You Note”

I struggle so deeply

to understand

how someone can

pour their entire soul

blood and energy

into someone

without wanting

anything in return

-Rupi Kaur, “I Will Have to Wait Until I’m a Mother”

A picture memory brings to


I look across the years and see

Myself beside my mother’s


I feel her gentle hand restrain

My selfish moods, and know


My child’s sense of wrong

and pain.

But wiser now,

a man gray grown,

My childhood’s needs are better


My mother’s chastening love I


-John Greenleaf Whittier, “Tribute to Mother”

You too, my mother, read my rhymes

For love of unforgotten times,

And you may chance to hear

once more

The little feet along the floor.

Robert Louis Stevenson, “To My 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 places bright shining stars,

In her cheeks fair roses you see;

God made a wonderful mother,

And He gave that dear mother to me.

-Pat O’Reilly, “Wonderful Mother”

A mother wraps her love

around the heart of her child,

keeping each beat steady

through the rhythm of life

until wings take shape

and it’s time for the soul

to take light.

-Christy Ann Martine, “A Mother”

“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.

-Karl Fuchs, “What ‘Mother’ Means”

When God created mothers,

All as lovely as can be,

He made one extra special,

And saved her just for me!

-Holly Giffers, “God Created Mothers”

Roses are red,

Violets are blue,

You’re the world’s best mom,

And I deeply love you.

-unknown, “Roses are Red for Mother’s Day”

I will always need my mom,
regardless of my age.
She’s made me laugh, made me cry.
Her love will never fade.
She’s watched me win, she’s seen me lose. 
There’s not a thing she wouldn’t do.
She cheers me up and keeps me grounded
if I lose my way. 
At times, she drives me crazy,
but my mom she’ll always be.
And even when I’m far away,
I think, what would my mother say…
Yes, even still today!

-Terry Kraemer, “My Mom”

You make the sun shine on a cloudy day
When I’m sick you kiss the pain away
Your tender voice took away my fears
Your hand that wiped away my tears
The love you give so honest and pure
Keeping me forever safe and secure
You make flowers bloom in the spring
It was you who fixed my broken wing
Mom, because of you I now know love
My guardian angel from above

-Christopher Parham, “Guardian Angel”

Love is nature’s threads
embroidered in children, stitch
by stitch by a mother.

-Richard Deets, “Love”

Never really appreciated, many times ignored.
She would give her life for you, never asking for reward.
Her love is never ending, though sometimes it gets lost,
For you must find your own way soon, through the cold of winter’s frost.
She will always be there for you, even if not asked …
For a mother’s soul won’t wither or die … even once she’s passed.

Katherine Martinez, “A Mother’s Soul”

The strength you have is astounding.
The miracles you work are brilliant.
I look up to you and ask you for guidance.
I admire all that you are.
One day I want to be the woman you are;
I aspire to make you proud.
You’re my every breath and heartbeat;
You are my soul.
In my eyes you’re perfect,
I couldn’t ask for anything more.
I can always count on you,
Even when I’m in the wrong.
I love all that you are,
My mother, my friend.

Amber Couture, “My Mother, My Friend”

Where do I run if I don’t have you?
You are what make my dreams come true.
You give me the hope and courage to fly, that helps me to soar to the sky.
You give me the love to help encourage another.
You are my one, my only mother.

-Annie Franklin, “Mom”

woman gifting her mother presents
Yuganov Konstantin

My mother is my lifeline; she is my complete savior.
She does everything she can for me, and for that I praise her.
She went without when I was younger so I could have nice stuff.
She worked herself to the bone but never did she give up.

My mother is my lifeline; she is truly my best friend.
She helped me through the good and bad; she stayed there till the end.
She picked me up when I was down and wiped the tears away.
She will be there when I need her every night and every day.

My mother is my lifeline; she’s completely a shining star.
She has never made me feel alone; no distance is too far.
She’ll travel to the moon and back if I ask her to.
My mother is my lifeline; this poem I wrote for you.

-Jessica Styles, “My Mother is My Lifeline”

The struggle to survive
To survive the daily chaos
The chaos that leads to frustration
The frustration that makes her find her strength
The strength which empowers her to see her mistakes
The mistakes she faces that allow her to see many blessings
The blessings which call her “mom”
The mother who seeks comfort
The comfort that she provides to her children
The children who see her as Super Mom
The Super Mom who takes on the world
The world that brings the struggles
The struggles of a mother
Mother’s utter chaos is a world full of appreciation
Appreciation that renders love

-Christina Vasquez, “A Mother’s Struggles”

Her hands held me gently from the day I took my first breath.

Her hands helped to guide me as I took my first step.

Her hands held me close when the tears would start to fall.

Her hands were quick to show me that she would take care of it all.

-Maggie Pittman, “Her Hands”

A mother’s arms taking me in

Born right into her loving touch, her loving arms

Growing love, growing older

The days I’m scared, I’m in her arms

Her arms still reached in need, so far away at times

But they still wrap around me, loving arms

Everyday that I need love

I think of my Mother’s arms

It’s your day, Happy Mother’s Day

Thank you for your loving arms.


To-day’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.

-Christina Rossetti, “To My Mother”

If I could be as good a mom as you,

My loving heart would make my family glad.

I’d be a good example in all I do;

I’d give my all, give everything I had.

If I could be as good a mom as you,

I’d make each day for family a pleasure.

I’d use my energy, my love, my gifts,

Creating memories they would always treasure.

You’ve done so much I never could repay;

I love you, Mom. Happy Mothers’ Day!

-Joanna Fuchs, “If I Could Be As Good A Mom As You”

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

hen all others are forsaking,

And it never fails or falters

even though the heart is breaking…

It believes beyond believing

when the world around condemns,

And it glows with all the beauty

of the rarest, brightest gems…

It is far beyond defining,

It defies all explanation,

And it still remains a secret

like the mysteries of creation…

A many splendored miracle men cannot understand

And another wondrous evidence

of God’s tender guiding hand.

-Helen Steiner Rice, “A Mother’s Love”

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.

-Jean Nordhaus, “A Dandelion for My Mother”

The water of her womb, your first home

The body she pulled apart to welcome you to the


The spirit in you she helped grow with all she


The heart she she gave you hen yours fell apart.

You are her soft miracle.

So she gave you her eyes to see the best in the


You carry your mother in your eyes.

Make her proud of all she watches you do.

-Nikita Gill, “Mother”

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 me.

-Sharlynn Manning, “My Heart”

Inspirational Mother Poems

mother holding kid's hand during sunset

I just wanted you to know… I will always stand by your side.

I will give back and be your guide.

I will fight for you in the hard times, even if all I have are a few dimes.

I will never lose my faith in you. My love for you is always true.


For all the times you tied my shoes

And tucked me into bed

Or needed something

But put me first instead

For everything we shared

The dreams, the laughter

and the tears

I love you with a “Special Love”

The deepens every year.


“Who ran to help me when I fell

And would some pretty story tell

Or kiss the place to make it well

My mother.

-Ann Taylor, “My Mother,”

“Once strangers, not knowing of each other,

God brought us together

To share a special bond of love

With a sweet girl named Sarah…

– Karen Ledbetter, “A Special Bond of Love”

Backward, turn backward, O Time, in your flight,

Make me a child again just for tonight!

Mother, come back from the echoless shore, Take me again to your heart as of yore;

Kiss from my forehead the furrows of care, Smooth the few silver threads out my hair;

Over my slumbers your loving watch keep; Rock me sleep, mother, — rock me to sleep!

-Elizabeth Akers Allen, “Rock me to Sleep”

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.

-George Cooper, “Only One Mother”

Mom, I look at you

and see a walking miracle.

Your unfailing love without limit,

your ability to soothe my every hurt,

the way you are on duty, unselfishly,

every hour, every day,

makes me so grateful

that I am yours, and you are mine.

With open arms and open heart,

with enduring patience and inner strength,

you gave so much for me,

sometimes at your expense.

You are my teacher,

my comforter, my encourager,

appreciating all, forgiving all.

Sometimes I took you for granted, Mom,

but I don’t now, and I never will again.

I know that everything I am today

relates to you and your loving care.

I gaze in wonder

as I watch you being you—

my miracle, my mother.

-Joanna Fuch, “My Miracle Mother”

Love set you going like a fat gold watch.

The midwife slapped your footsoles, and

your bald cry

Took its place among the elements.

Our voices echo, magnifying your arrival.

New statue.

In a drafty museum, your nakedness

Shadows our safety. We stand round blankly as walls.

I’m no more your mother

Than the cloud that distills a mirror to

reflect its own slow

Effacement at the wind’s hand.

-Sylvia Plath, “Morning Song”

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

than a luster

I see you in gleams

pale as star-light on a gray wall…

evanescent as the reflection of a white


shimmering in broken water.

-Lola Ridge, “Mother”

How did you find the energy, Mom

To do all the things you did,

To be teacher, nurse and counselor

To me, when I was a kid.

How did you do it all, Mom

Be a chauffer, cook and friend?

Yet find time to be a playmate,

I just can’t comprehend.

I see now it was love, Mom

That made you come whenever I’d call,

Your inexhaustible love, Mom

And I thank you for it all.

-Joanna Fuchs, “Everything Mom”

Sonnets are full of love, and this my tome

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 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 honoured 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.

-Christina Rossetti, “Sonnets are Full of Love, and This is My Tome”

A Mother loves right from the start.

She holds her baby close to her heart.

The bond that grows will never falter.

Her love is so strong it will never alter.

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 wipes 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, be kind.

Happy Mothers Day.

-Carol Matthews, “Mother’s Day”

The hand that rocks the cradle

also makes the house a home.

It is the prayers of the mother

that keeps the family strong.

Mother rises early in the morning

and bathes her day in prayer.

She talks to God about her family

and places them in His care.

Mother communicates her love

in a thousand different ways.

When there’s a need, she is there,

whether it is night or day.

Mother seasons life with love

and gives so much of herself.

God placed in her the best He had

and made her unlike anyone else.

When challenges come our way

and when trials block our view,

Mother kneels down beside her bed

and prays the family through.

Mother is God’s special creation.

She is a light shining in the dark,

illuminating the path for her family

and pointing them toward God.

-Lenora McWhorter, “God’s Special Creation”

If I knew as a child what I know now, Mom,

I probably wouldn’t have made things

so hard for you.

I would have understood

that you were looking out for my best interest.

even though it may not have seemed so at the time.

I would have known how difficult it is to let go,

to stand back and let someone you love

learn from their mistakes.

I would have realized

how fortunate I was to have a mother

who was always there for me,

even after an argument,

even after I’d said things

I shouldn’t have.

While it’s too late for a lot of things

it’s not too late for me to tell you

that I appreciate how loving you are,

how giving you’ve always been

and that even though

I may not always be good at showing it,

I love you very much.

-Renee Duvall, “If I Knew as a Child”

I’m writing this poem for you, Mom,

because I want this poem to be

my own special way of showing you

how much you mean to me.

I have so much to say,

and I don’t think this poem will do,

but each word in between these lines

comes straight from my heart for you.

I know I haven’t been a perfect son,

but you’ve taken things in stride,

and no matter how many problems I’ve had,

you’ve always been by my side.

I could talk to you about whatever I felt,

because I knew that you’d understand,

all that you asked from me in return

was to stand up and be a man.

If I asked you for some advice

you never have told me no,

and if I made a dumb mistake,

you’ve never said I told you so!

You’ve always treated me real special

and sometimes I don’t understand why.

But when I think about how I’ve hurt you,

it makes me want to cry.

This is an apology for the mistakes I’ve made

and the conflicts that we’ve had,

for all the times I’ve hurt you

and for all the times I’ve made you mad.

I wrote this especially for you mom,

this is my cry out to you.

To let you know how sorry I am

and how much I really love you.

Travis Harris, “Especially For You, Mom”

I would do just about anything you’d ask,
For you, there’s nothing I wouldn’t do; there’s no such task.

I would walk without my shoes to the end of the Earth.
I would give up anything I had to, to teach you self-worth.

I would hold your hand every minute of every day,
But I won’t because I know you need to find your own way.

I would surely bear the heartache of your first love that’s real,
Even though I can’t, I will naturally feel as you feel.

I would sell my soul if it would keep you happy forever,
I would give my right arm to keep us forever together.

I would run a hundred miles up-hill in the rain,
Just to guarantee that you will never feel pain.

I would laugh with you even if I were sad.
I will give you a smile even if I’m mad.

I can only accept your mistakes with a grin on my face.
I will guide you in correcting them but at your own pace.

I will guide you through life, as this world can get quite wild.
Just don’t you ever forget that you will always be my child.

-Jayne Sena, “What I Would Do For You”

Baby dolls and dinosaurs-
one that cries, one that roars
The pitter patter of little feet-
a bike race in which they want you to compete
Fruity Pebbles, pancakes, no wait! a pop-tart-
those daily moments that steal your heart
One throws tantrums, the other just pouts-
ahh, the joys of motherhood- what life is all about
Another birthday – two paychecks in all-
but, it is so worth it with smiling memories on the wall
From late night tears to early morning grumps-
through all the bruises, scrapes and bumps
The kisses and hugs, the encouraging words-
from nursery rhymes to the bees and the birds
The laughter, the memories, those looks in their eyes-
never trade it for anything – never compromise
The toys left out, the clothes on the floor-
these are the moments we mothers live for
For we are the ones who are there through it all-
to always make it better and pick them up when they fall
From kissing their boo-boos and making sure they’re fed-
passing down stories while tucking them into bed
Through the weight gain, cravings, labor and more-
to that one special moment we spend 9 months waiting for
Eighteen years is what they say, but our work is never done-
a lifetime of tears, laughter, sadness and fun
Nothing in the world can even come close-
to the one special bond God made matter the most
A relationship only two certain people can share-
a mother and her child, nothing will ever compare…

-Katherine Dykstra, “Motherhood”

I’ve tried to write so many times,
But it’s been hard to say in rhymes.
I’ll try once more and hope you’ll see
Just what your love has meant to me.

Thank you for your pain at birth
That brought me to my life on Earth.
Thanks for all the time you spent
For cuddles and your nourishment.

Thank you for the stories read
As I lay cozy in my bed.
Thanks for your enlightenment
To solve new mysteries life had sent.

Thank you for the cures and care
When sickness caught me unaware.
Thanks for tucking me in tight
And kisses on my head, “Good night.”

Thanks for comfort when I cried
And tissues used for tears you dried.
Thanks for courage to go on,
To see from night, a day will dawn.

Thanks for freedom that you gave
To go outside, the world to brave.
Thank you for the friends I’d meet
That helped with friendships I’d repeat.

Thank you for your help with school
And teaching me the Golden Rule.
Thanks for praise when I prevailed
And understanding when I failed.

Thanks for parties that you gave
And birthday cards I tried to save.
Thanks for meals I loved so much
And baking skills that few could touch!

Thank you for your help to write
My stories you helped bring to light.
Thanks for helping talents surface
That made me see my life had purpose.

Thanks for tears when I left home,
So I could make it on my own.
Thanks for tears when I returned
For visits that you long had yearned.

But now…

Your life I loved has run its course,
For time will take us all by force.
Your love for me, not kept inside,
And no conditions were applied.

So, thanks for all things, small and large,
Your love saw fit to do … no charge.

-Brian Bendall, “No Charge”

She’s a gift to her children
Our strong devotion each day
A hand in our hand
A breath of fresh air along the way
She’s our good fairy godmother
A mighty mom everywhere
The sun in the morning
She’s our daily prayer
She’s our encouraging voice
As we grow day by day
The rose in the vase
The shine on a cloudy day
She’s God’s angel sent from heaven
Our bright star in the night
The queen of our souls
She’s our shadow in the light
A comfort when she holds you
A memory when she’s gone
A million tiny heart beats
The music in a song
She’s a love that’s everlasting
Worth more than diamonds and gold
We thank God for our mothers
A sacred treasure to behold

-Jac Campbell, “She’s Our Mother”

That Phenomenal Lady…
That fantastically raised me
Lived life to the fullest,
Extended love to the cruelest;
She always had a smile on her beautiful face.
She was a friend to all – no matter the race;
That wonderful, Phenomenal Lady.

That Phenomenal Lady…
Bestowed upon me abundant love,
Protected me as a lion its cub;
When I was sick or sad, she’d pray.
Her love erased my troubles away;
That precious, Phenomenal Lady.

That Phenomenal Lady…
The gem the Lord gave me,
Was more valuable than silver or gold;
She possessed many pearls of wisdom,
Too numerous for one to hold;
That remarkable, Phenomenal Lady.

And though she is physically gone,
She continues to live on and on;
Within the confines of my heart,
Memories of her will never part;
I thank God for the mother he gave me,
That wonderful, precious, remarkable…
Phenomenal Lady!

-Valerie Staton, “Phenomenal Lady”

You brought me my first toy,
My first bike and baseball glove.
You filled my heart with joy,
And you filled my life with love.
You taught me how to count
And how to say my ABC’s,
How to say, “You’re Welcome,”
“Thank You,” and “Pretty Please.”

You taught me “Our Father,”
And “Hail Mary, Full of Grace,”
And how to greet a neighbor
With a smile and embrace.
You taught me that all things
Come from Jesus up above.
But most of all, sweet Mother,
You taught me how to love.

You taught me that all leprechauns
Possessed a pot of gold
And that they had these unicorns
Back in the days of old.
You taught me that a fantasy
Could end up with a scream.
You taught me not to give up,
Not to give up on a dream.

You taught me words of wisdom
And tended to my every need.
You gave me all the tools
That a man needs to succeed.
You filled my world with laughter,
And you brightened up my world.
And these are the reasons why
You’re my best and favorite girl.

-Ronald Doe, “My Best and Favorite Girl”

A mother’s love is a wonderful love packaged from heaven with special care.
A mother’s love is like no other love that you can compare.
A mother’s love is purified by angels and flows directly from her soul.
A mother’s love is justified by God, and by his hands he created the mold.
This mold that was shaped and fashioned by God has endured the test of time.
This mold that was taped and recorded by women rang out like a heavenly chime.
A mother’s love is unconditional, and from her heart this can be told.
A mother’s love is nutritional; it is the fruit that feeds our soul.
A mother’s love ‘IS’ true love, and from her heart she cannot lie.
A mother’s love is eternal, the kind that won’t ever die.
A mother’s love is the tie that binds, and her bond can never be broken.
A mother’s love is branded in our hearts, even when her words aren’t spoken.

-Leotha Brown II, “A Mother’s Love is True Love”

You are the sunlight in my day.
You are the moon I see far away.

You are the tree I lean upon.
You are the one that makes troubles be gone.

You are the one who taught me about life,
How not to fight and what is right.

You are the words inside my song.
You are my love, my life, my mom.

You are the one who cares for me.
You are the eyes that help me see.

You are the one who knows me best,
When it’s time to have fun and time to rest.

You are the one who has helped me to dream.
You hear my heart and you hear my screams.

Afraid of life but looking for love.
I’m blessed, for God sent you from above.

You are my friend, my heart, and my soul.
You are the greatest friend I know.

You are the words inside my song.
You are my love, my life, my mom.

-Champagne Baker, “A Poem for Mom”

She does her battles quietly,
For her kids, on her knees.
Spending many sleepless nights,
So our lives can be with ease.

She takes on our troubles,
While leaving her own behind.
In the midst of stress and strain,
Will still manage to be kind.

She is a calming presence,
For acquaintances far and near.
Will be sought to settle issues,
Whenever hot tempers flare.

She is that ray of sunshine,
Making our home bright and warm.
She is that steady anchor,
When life seems a raging storm.

Easy strength runs in her frame,
Tenderness, within her core.
No matter how little she gets,
Always giving more and more.

She never needs a sidekick,
Fancy clothes really aren’t her thing.
But mummy is a superhero,
A magnificent human being.

-Abimbola Alabi, “She’s Our Hero”

These are the words I’ve constructed in my mind,
to say thank you for all that you’ve done.
But words are somehow hard to find.
Before I could say it, they’re long gone.

Thank you will never be enough to say
to the one who gives the world to me,
the one whom I owe my life and makes me whole,
the one who forms my soul.

The one who tucked me in at night,
fought the tiredness with all her might.
The one who never dares to sleep,
to make sure I sleep sound and safe.

The one who taught me to chase the rainbow’s end,
who taught me that in life we need to know how to bend.
Who taught me to never give up with broken dreams,
just make it whole again.

The one who painted my world in colors,
for teaching me to be strong enough.
How could I possibly say thanks to you?
I find this question tough.

Is there any way to say thank you?
For the love you taught me so,
the kindness you have planted in me,
and all your loving ways.

For your heart that never ceases to love,
for giving me all that you ever have.
For all your sweat and all your tears,
and all you’ve done for me through the years.

For never giving up on me,
for loving me through eternity.
For accepting my flaws and the way I changed,
for being my ever truly best friend.

Maybe the only way to say thank you
is to make all your hopes and dreams for me to come true,
to take good care of the garden of love you’ve planted in me,
and pass it to my next legacy.

Thank you, Mama, for not giving up on me
those times I needed you most.
Most of all, thank you for the gifts you give,
you give freely without a cost.

Verliza Gajeles, “How Can I Say Thank You Enough?”

The lady who has loved you as you’ve grown
will always love and cherish you for all time.
She has the greatest heart ever known.

She watched you grow through every milestone
and held you during every bedtime.
She is the lady who has loved you as you’ve grown.

You happen to be her most precious stone,
and her love is as brilliant as a summer’s day.
She has the greatest heart ever known.

And if you ever feel alone,
she is the one to make you feel fine.
She has loved you as you’ve grown.

She will brag about you to anyone known,
because to her, you are perfectly sublime.
Her heart is the greatest ever known.

I desire to be like her when I am grown
and have a daughter of my own,
because she has taught me how to love as I’ve grown.

She has the greatest heart ever known.

Maggie Bernard, “She Makes A House A Home”

Though words are written
About mothers, that is true,
Still, I know that no one ever had
A mother just like you.

I never had to wonder
If your love was there for me.
You showed it in so many ways
That it was plain to see.

You helped me see the beauty
Of this world in which we’re living.
You showed me how much happiness
Can come from cheerful giving.

Your faith gave me the courage
To pursue those distant goals
That might have seemed impossible
For less encouraged souls.

So let these heartfelt words of mine
Be included with the others,
For you have been the very best,
My own beloved mother.

-Alora Knight, “To My Beloved Mother”

Don’t you know that I possess,
the deepest love for you?

For all my heart, my soul, my mind,
envelops the two of you.

I have always made a point,
to let you know how much –

The two of you mean to me
as my life you’ve truly touched.

There is no other love,
to compare this feeling to –

To help you understand,
this mother’s love for you.

Even when I’m angry
and could turn my head and cry –

My love goes on enduring,
no matter how severe our trial.

I may not always like you,
or approve the things you do –

But write it down in your heart-of-hearts –
my love’s forever true.

Dawn Tate, “A Mother’s Love Forever True”

A mother’s hug is as warm as could be,
For if you haven’t had one, you will see.
Her hug shoves out remorse and despair
And fills happiness into the once empty air.
When she looks into your guilty eyes,
She can see all those disappointing lies.
So there is no use in trying to hide your regretful sins,
Because after all, you probably do need a cleanse.
As tears run down your troubled face,
It helps to know that she will give you some grace.
Hugging you, she tells you everything will be okay,
And you believe that with no dismay.
Her warmth radiates through her to you,
Showing you that she loves you so much too.
It brings comfort as she strokes your hair
and tells you that no matter what, she will always be there.

Amber Alaniz, “A Mother’s Hug”

My mother sees me as a bright, beautiful girl.
Who’s all grown up in this busy world.
Who’s funny, courageous, brave, and strong.
Who’s intelligent and knows right from wrong.
Who makes decisions on her own.
Who knows how to clean a dirty home.
In this hectic world, I stand tall.
And keep my composure through it all.
But once I was a little girl.
Who was small and dependent in this busy world
So how did I become the woman I call me?
I was cared for, loved, and raised properly.
I had a wonderful model to look up to.
(Even though I never tried her kung fu)
I was taught to reach for the stars.
And be proud of everything you are.
So now I’m reaching my goals and dreams.
And I have you to thank for everything.
I love you, Mom!

-Jessica Nickell, “Through My Mother’s Eyes”

Funny Mother’s Day Poems

mother smiling with her two daughters

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

Chocolately and sweet, tasted divine

I’m sorry mom, maybe next year will be better

Instead of chocolates, I’ll get you a sweater.


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!

-Joanna Fuchs, “Super Mom”

Waking up to a new day
I find my mother there
Always up to awaken me
And to help me brush my hair
She does everything imaginable
And helps me on my way
On the road to a successful future
Every single day
Yet, sometimes she confuses me
And puzzles others too
Saying, Hey, don’t talk back to me.
But then, answer, when I talk to you
I love my mother very much
But sometimes don’t understand
I’m thirteen years old
And crossing the street
Still she holds my hand
But we are all thankful for our moms
That person in our lives
Who takes good care and nurtures us
And supports the way we strive
No matter what we do or say
We know we’ll never lose
The love and support
That they have for us in whatever path we choose
Most times my mother makes me laugh
Sometimes I think she’s insane
But then again she may take a look at me
And think the very same
When she goes out and shops for food
She may even get frustrated
On the double
The cashier had better get the math right
Or else she’ll be in big trouble
I used to think that no one else would do the things she’d do
Yet I’m absolutely sure
That your mother does the same things too
My mom could be a lawyer
She loves to argue too
But don’t debate with her
The loser will definitely be you
So thank God for mothers
And the crazy things they do
Stop and think
When you’re a parent
You’ll act the same way too

Samantha Blackwood, “My Mom”

Your arms were always open

when I needed a hug.

Your heart understood

when I needed a friend.

Your gentle eyes were stern

when I needed a lesson.

Your strength and love has guided me

and gave me wings to fly.

-Sarah Malin, “Mother”

She is the “Rhinoceros Beetle,”
There is nothing she can’t handle.
She is the burning candle, spreading light,
Pushing darkness away, inviting it to be bright.

She stands by “to live and let live,”
Makes her community come alive.
She is a mother;
Dare anyone cause her bother.

She is an angel in life,
Sister, mother, and wife.
She goes beyond the barrier of pain,
Withstanding burning sun and rain.

Men work for self,
While she toils selflessly.
Let us give strength to her,
Respect the causes she stand for.

She is behind every success,
Not expecting any praise.

Tejas P, “A Woman’s Capability”

I watched my Mom fill out an application.
I looked at the line that asks about past professions.
I thought to myself, that space is too small
To write down what she’s been, to cover it all.
She was a nurse when I fell and scraped my knee.
She was a maid when I didn’t wipe my feet.
She was a designer when my clothes didn’t match.
She was a tailor when my pants needed a patch.
She was a teacher when I asked a question.
She was a priest when I had a confession.
She was a psychiatrist when I came home crying.
She was a preacher when I got caught lying.
She was a singer when she sung me to sleep.
She was a lifeguard when she said the water’s too deep.
There are many more, yet the best one to me,
She was a best friend and mine forever she’ll be.

Marian Kehrley, “The Mothering Job”

There is nothing more special than our children,
who touch our lives in so many ways,
their smiles, love, laughter and tears,
which we experience throughout the years.

They may travel down long dusty, rough roads.
Their hearts may be burdened with heartache,
but a mother’s hand is always there
reaching out to lead them back on the right path.

We may not always feel they listen or make the right decisions,
but a mother always stands behind them,
giving them encouragement and reassurance.
There is nothing more special than a mother’s love.

A child may not feel a parent understands or feels the pain they feel,
but whenever our children hurt, we hurt.
So when it seems things couldn’t get any worse,
a mother’s hand is always there waiting to be held.

Kathy Walker, “A Mother’s Love”

Make sure to call mama on Mother’s Day,
Her birthday and the rest.
You know she’s sitting by the phone
Wishing you all the best.

She doesn’t want to bother you,
So she waits for YOU to phone.
She has so much free time now.
Most of it spent alone.

She knows you are very busy now,
With work and kids and wife.
She helps you out whenever she can.
She is the one who gave you life.

The years go by, so fast they fly.
The years just never stop.
She has joined the local church and
At local thrift stores she shops.

Luckily, you have an organized wife
Who sends the cards you sign.
You moved away for job prospects,
Not because you wanted to leave her behind.

She quietly lives her life,
Puttering around the yard,
Thinking of ways she could help you
And cherishing your beautiful cards.

Whenever you think of her,
Please listen and take the time,
Because I would give everything I have
For just five minutes with mine.

Debbie Leads, “Do What I Can’t”

More Mother’s Love Poems

Whose love can equal
the love of a mother
Whose devotion, so loyal and true
Who suffers so much
for the joys of another
who works with such pleasure
as mother, for you.

You hail with delight
the friendships of others
you revel in love of the sweetheart you’ve won
yet where can you find a friendship like mother’s
unbroken till death calls and life’s
work is done.

Darlene Eck, “Mother’s Love”

I remember the day you entered my world
The doctor said it’s a baby girl
I counted all your fingers and your toes
That’s just what you do, every mother knows.
I took you home as proud as could be
This precious gift God had given to me.
I changed dirty diapers and never got sleep
It was all worth it, you were mine to keep.
From baby to girl, where did time go?
How could I fix the clocks to make them go slow?
You’d always have boo boo’s I’d fix with a kiss
Those silly little things I knew I would miss.
One day I woke up, a teenager was there
with beautiful brown eyes and soft skin so fair.
We had our arguements, fusses, and fights.
We’d make it all better before we turned out the lights.
Then one day she said she had a surprise
With a look of worry I saw in her eyes.
My teenager was gone, this I could see
Because my daughter was now a mother to be.
My baby, my girl, my teen is now grown
A woman she’s become with a girl of her own.
You’re the joy in my life I’ll never again find
I hope she fills your heart with love like you do mine.

Michelle Upchurch, “My Precious Gift”

M is for Mummy or Mama or Mum.
O is for Organized. No? It will come!
T is for Tantrums and Terrible Twos;
H is for Hurry! A dash for the loos!
E is for Empathy you’ll feel for new mummies;
R is for Relentlessly filling their tummies!
H is for Happy as you often will be;
O is for Optimism; it really is the key!
O is also for an Open door;
D is for Devoted, their mum forevermore.

Jenny Elvy, “Motherhood”

You are the one
With whom I find solace.
You are the one
Who won’t leave me in any case.
You are the one
Who will be like a shield,
Protecting me from every problem I yield.
You are the one
Who’s there always,
Being there for me in every way.
I want to ask you just one thing:
When I try to stifle my cry,
When I don’t want anyone to be nearby,
How do you recognize that I need you by my side?
You are the answer to my every question.
You are the solution to my every problem.
You being there is the greatest assurance.
With you being there, I need no salvation.
All I want you to do is feel my thankfulness.
All I want you to do is acknowledge my gratefulness.
A group of words can’t describe my gratitude,
Because they don’t have such attitude.
All I want to do is thank you for being an awesome mother
Whose love can’t be compared to any other!

Nandini Doshi, “Thank You”

You are my mother
and always you shall be.
There is no other
who better understands me.

You gave me life
and everything else I ever needed.
My love for you is beyond life.
Every day I am alive I feel better
with you here.
My life has always been so clear.

I will never be anyone’s daughter but yours.
For that I am lucky
and have been for nineteen years.
Not once have I felt unlucky.

A time will come,
when I move out for good.
Then and only then will I become
the woman we knew I would.

Mom, what I am saying,
is that I love you.
Every day I am praying
that you are always here to help me through.

I love you!
I cannot say it enough,
and one day you will get your due
For being so tough!

Brittany Kelly, “Thanking Mother”

You’re like the sun
that brightens the day.
When you’re not there,
the light goes away.

You’re like the moon
that brightens the night.
When you’re not around,
there is no light.

You’re like the stars
that shine so bright.
You’re never wrong
but always right.

You’re like the tree
that bears the sweetest pear.

There’s one thing
in my heart I want to say.
“You’re the world’s best mom
I see every day.”

Bindiya Bissasir, “A Special Love”

Dear Mother, I’ve so much to tell you,
I wouldn’t know where to begin.
There’s so much I’ve learned in the years since you’ve gone,
How I long to just see you again.

It’s amazing how now at this point in my life,
All your words of advice ring so true.
And I know now you spoke from that place where you came,
And from all that your life brought you through.

I recognize, too, just how hard you had tried
To prepare me for all life could be.
And surviving through my own life’s struggles
Made me see what your words meant to me.

I regret how I took you for granted,
Just expecting you’d always be there.
Too self-involved to take time to see,
Just how much it had cost you to care.

There were times when I know you felt frustrated,
There was only so much you could do.
And despite how much guidance and help that you gave,
I know the hell I put you through.

I remember those days when you seemed very sad,
But I never took time to ask why.
But in life I’ve discovered when you give of yourself,
It can make you feel empty inside.

I know there were so many hopes that you had,
Dreams you could never see through.
Instead, you spent each precious moment you could
Trying to make all my wishes come true.

What I miss more today than that mother I loved
Is that woman who became my dear friend,
With her hysterical wit and her warm open heart,
And a loyalty that remained till the end.

If I could just see you for just one last time,
If I could just hug you again,
I’d thank you for being all that you were,
And for making me all that I am.

Patricia Fleming, “Dear Mother, I’ve So Much to Tell You”

To be a mom is to love unconditionally for life.
To be a mom is to support in times of trouble and strife. 
To be a mom is to know you can’t be perfect all the time.
To be a mom is a having a mountain every day to climb.
To be a mom is to nurse, to protect, to nurture.
To be a mom is knowing your words will hold, even on your departure.
To be a mom can be hard, can be painful.
To be a mom can be rewarding, can be joyful.
To be a mom is to say I love you, I care,
And whenever you need me, I’ll be there.

Jenny Elvy, “To Be A Mom”

A woman whom I love…
Waits outside my bedroom door.
A woman whom I care for…
Is there when I am hurt, sad, or mad.
A woman whom I appreciate…
Honors me for the person I am inside.
A woman whom I fear…
Pushes and pushes if only for the better.
A woman who is thoughtful…
Thinks of others before she thinks of herself.
This woman is My Mom…
She cries when I cry…
She’s mad when I’m mad…
She’s hurt when I’m hurt…
She’s sad when I’m sad.
This woman is My Mom.

Junior Guerra, “My Mom”

Ever since I was a little girl, you showed me right from wrong;
inspired me with your courage, put me to bed with a song..

When you got sick and almost died,
you always kept your pain inside to spare me.

You never let me see your tears,
encouraged me to be strong.

Who could know what God’s plan was,
He let me keep you after all.

Every day you told me, Education is the key.
It all sunk in, because now I’m in college, securing a good life.

If things had turned out differently, 
If you had been taken away,

And your words had never gotten through,
where would I be today?

All in all, it seems as though,
I owe my life to you,

You are my Mom, and if you weren’t here,
I don’t know what I’d do.

-Martina Middleton, “What Would I Do Without You?”

When I cried,
You wiped my tears away.
You showed me the colour
When I only saw grey.

You made me smile
When I felt hurt
And made me laugh
When I felt like dirt.

When I felt like a shadow,
You showed me to the light
And always reminded me
The world’s not black and white.

I have some words for you,
Just like you always do.
I just wanna say,
“Happy Mother’s Day.”

When you hug me,
Your hug smells of flowers.   
I want to stay there
And hug for hours.

When I want to give up,
You say, “Keep trying.
Get up again
And stop crying.”

When I said words of hatred
You kissed my forehead
Forgive those who hurt you,
Let your kindness spread.

Happy Mother’s Day
Is easy to say,
But I say it from my heart,
And I always did, from the start.

You’re kind, nice and pretty,
Always there when I need you.
I always look up to you,
Like I always do.

When nights were cold,
You were there to hold.
You were warm
And stopped the storm.

I just want to say
Happy Mother’s Day.
I love you
And I will forever, too.

-Adeena Rahman, “For My Special Someone”

Mum, as from the start
I have loved you with all my heart
I can’t tell you how much I care
There are so many things I would love to share

There are so many ways I could say I LOVE YOU
And I know you think the same too
I can’t begin to explain how happy I am when I see your face
I’m so glad that I live at your place

I love that sweet smell on your pillow
It would be great to take a walk under the willow
Mum, I have so much love for you
But when it comes to other people there’s only a few!!

Jess, “I Love You Mum”

When I think of Mom, I think of all things good.
I think of a time when I felt safe.
Nothing makes me feel as safe as she could.
When I think of Mom, my heart feels a little lighter and if the sun happens to be shinning it shines a little brighter.
When I think of Mom, I see her face so clearly in my mind.
The shape of her nose and her eyes.
Her smile was oh so kind.
When I think of Mom, the world is not the same. 
Just the thought of my Mom can ease some of this worldly pain.
So I think of Mom all the time, whether I am happy or sad.
My Mom is just a thought away and that makes me very, very glad.

Catherine McGhee, “Thinking of Mom”

You could never be appreciated enough
You could never be thanked enough
For the gift of just being you
The world was given through your womb
But life was given through your love
What a privilege it is
To have a Mother like you
Was there a mold made for you
How inconceivable a thought
The most devoted
The most respected
The most encouraging
The most dedicated
The most one woman could be
What is a mother?
A mother is you
The ultimate definition of motherhood
Resides in your mirror every day
If every child had a mother like you
The sun would never set
Happiness rises with you
Never to be eclipsed
A Mother’s love
Is as priceless as priceless gets

Joseph Boyd, “Mother”

I sit and look out upon the life of a single parent
I hear the single mother’s selfless cries of loneliness for her child in the still darkness of the night
I see the mother awaking her child with a playful game of peek-a-boo with a smile as warm and bright as the afternoon sun at its apex of the day
I mark the loving kindness she expresses toward her son even with the all the trials and tribulations this world puts upon her
I observe the mother getting herself ready for work with the misgivings of the coming day (where are my socks, did I already put salt in the eggs, where did I put my keys)
I observe the quiet darkness of the child’s bedroom with the mother sitting on the bed with a Bible in hand telling her child of all the wonderful things of God’s love then kissing him good night
All these things are things a mother has to do to help her child grow
See, hear, and be not afraid you can succeed with God’s help

Tiara Winston, “Single Mom”

There’s not a single day that goes by
That I don’t think about you.
You’re the reason my hair is dark brown
And my eyes are so blue.

I thought we had nothing,
That my life was rough,
I wish I could have known
Just having you was enough.

I understand a little better now
You did the best you could,
As anyone being disabled, having five children
And a drug addiction would.

I’m so sorry, Mom, I didn’t show
You then,
But if you gave me the chance
I would do it all over again.

I would hug you so tight
And never let go,
You need me and love me,
That’s all I need to know!

Amber Adkins, “Dear Mom”

Ever since my first breath of life; not knowing what lay ahead of me
You have guided me through
Ever since the first time your hand was fitted in mine
I felt secure
Ever since the first time I heard the rhythm of your heart beat
It filled my heart with joy; and made tears fall from my eyes
Ever since I smelled your sweet, motherly scent
Ever since the first time I looked into your deep, beautiful, brown eyes
I can see the love inside
Ever since the first time I heard you say ‘I love you’
Your voice remains in my heart and in my mind
For every laugh, every cry, every sigh, and every smile
The memories with you I shall treasure
For you are my one and only mother

I thank you, this day and forever.

-Jacqueline Baker, “Thank You, This Day and Forever”

M – is for MUM,
U – is for Unique in every way
M – is for Memories enshrined forever
With a mum like you I could never be glum

Your smile is like sunshine, it warms me through and through
Your eyes are pools of liquid love that just makes me want to cry
To hug you till I die

When I was little you showed your love in every way
By applying magic plasters and kisses by the day
Every hurt you healed with loving grace
Bringing back a smile to my tearstained face

Nothing was ever too much for you
You were my taxi, my mentor, my mum
All I asked of you, with love you would do
Sometimes with a sigh, a look, a gesture
But always with buckets of love by the measure

When I was inconsolable and my heart was broken
Your arms around me, loving words were spoken
You gave me faith and hope that love would be mine one day
That my knight in shining armor would surely come my way

You were there when my hand was given away,
and cried as dad handed me over
You gave me a hug and squeezed my hand, its’ ok, love,
I’ll always be here for you night and day

You took turns in mopping my brow when my babies came along
You gave me support and strength to carry on
Helped me through teething, colic and broken bones
Always with compassion, caring and calm

Mum, my debt to you is undisputed
My love for you unconditional and limitless
You are my rock, my anchor, my safe harbor in times of stress
Thanks mum, for everything, I love you

Franciszka Doris, “Ode to My Mum”

She is someone who loves
She is someone who cares
She protects, nurtures, and keeps a
person smiling.
She is the symbol of excellence,
intelligence and elegance.
Her words will pierce you like an arrow
when you’ve done wrong
Other times they’ll flow from her mouth
with joy and compliments.
She shows that life’s brutal but that
she’s a shelter from the storm where you
can always run to and be free.
If there ever was or ever will be a
woman like this her name is Mom

-Ashley Lassiter, “All That A Mom Should Be”

O thou whose care sustained my infant years,
And taught my prattling lip each note of love;
Whose soothing voice breathed comfort to my fears,
And round my brow hope’s brightest garland wove;

To thee my lay is due, the simple song,
Which Nature gave me at life’s opening day;
To thee these rude, these untaught strains belong,
Whose heart indulgent will not spurn my lay.

O say, amid this wilderness of life,
What bosom would have throbbed like thine for me?
Who would have smiled responsive?—who in grief,
Would e’er have felt, and, feeling, grieved like thee?

Who would have guarded, with a falcon-eye,
Each trembling footstep or each sport of fear?
Who would have marked my bosom bounding high,
And clasped me to her heart, with love’s bright tear?

Lucretia Maria Davidson, “To My Mother”

My beautiful Mother
sweet as a flower
Never asks for anything
Always giving
Always smiling
Never frowning
Caring as a teacher
Never too busy to give advice
Always there by my side
Always helping
Never neglecting
Understanding as a counselor
Never gives up
Always does her best
Always shining
Never quitting

Monica, “My Beautiful Mother”

Who fed me from her gentle breast,
And hush’d me in her arms to rest,
And on my cheek sweet kisses prest?
My Mother.

When sleep forsook my open eye,
Who was it sung sweet hushaby,
And rock’d me that I should not cry?
My Mother.

Who sat and watched my infant head,
When sleeping in my cradle bed,
And tears of sweet affection shed?
My Mother.

When pain and sickness made me cry,
Who gazed upon my heavy eye,
And wept for fear that I should die?
My Mother.

Who dress’d my doll in clothes so gay,
And taught me pretty how to play.
And minded all I had to say?
My Mother.

-Ann Taylor, “My Mother”

A mother is someone who cares,
Someone who will readily share.
Who tries to bandage up cut knees,
Who likes to give and to please.

A mother is someone who smiles a lot.
A mother is someone who gives all she’s got.
She loves to make others smile,
Tries to go that extra mile…

A mother like this is a rare gemstone.
With a mother like this, you’ll never feel alone,
For a mother can be your best friend,
Caring, sharing, pleasing to the very end.

Laura Sanders, “A Mother”

For all the years of guidance and support.
For putting up with me as I began to court.
I owe you so much I could never repay,
I can only send love forever your way.
The strongest, the bravest is who you are
I am thinking of you always near or far.
You gave me a home and showed me love.
You are truly an angel from high above.
I always strive to make you proud,
Although I am sure my life has been too loud.
No matter what you support me to the end
You’ve been my Mom, my Mamaw, my Friend.
For the woman and mother I am today,
It all goes to you for showing me the way.
May today and every day leave you feeling blessed,
Just as I have since God gave me the best.

Kristie Smith, “Blessed”

when I am in the dark,
she is the light for me
when I am in the hot sun,
she is shade for me
when I sleep,
she is bed for me
when I am ill,
she is medicine for me
on earth, she is life for me
great to have a sweet mom like YOU.

-Janani, “Mom’s The Best”

From the moment
I came into this world,
you gave to me
your heart and soul.

You give up all the time
you have for yourself
just to show to me
how much I mean to you.

Every day and every night
you give to me all your love.
You run to me
when I call your name.

You embrace me
to heal my pain.
The warmth of your touch
will always be in my heart.

Even if the time will come
that God will take you away from me,
I will never forget
your undying love for me.

Your love molds me
to become a person with morality.
Sorry for all the times
that I just made you cry.

Sorry if I can’t return
all your love for me.
To all of my imperfections,
your love for me will never change.

Your love for me will always be true,
for your love for me is endless.
I love you, Mom, now and forever.
I’ll love you, Mom, until the end of forever.

“The Greatest Love”

My worries hang heavy on her boughs
Our scars look the same, carved into her forgiving bark.
This world only knows change, but her roots are unmoving.
Her hurt is mine, and mine is written onto her heart.
Even when I leave to go touch each corner of the earth, I’ll always
Return to rest in the shelter of her loving arms.

-RedRiverGirl, “Mother”

Mom, from the time I was really young,

I realized I had someone…you,

who always cared,

who always protected me,

who was always there for me no matter what.

You taught me right from wrong,

and pushed me to do the right thing,

even when it was hard to do.

You took care of me when I was sick,

and your love helped make me well.

You had rules,

and I learned that when I obeyed them,

my life was simpler, better, richer.

You were and are

the guiding light of my life.

My heart is filled with love for you,

my teacher, my friend, my mother.

-Karl and Johanna “Guiding Light”

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.

-“Mother’s Love

throughout my life you are always near.
