Compassion embraces a child eternally
That uplifts a childs soul in isolation in every way.

Sweetest Sound

I'm very young, mother reads

her voice leads my imagination

romantic, fantastic

sweet, like cake


I'm twenty-eight,

hold my son and read

familiar poems, tales

from an orange book

A Mother's Quote

Mother's are most special

Their Tender Touch

And Loving Care

Is more than a Father

Could even Bare

Their Magical Boo-Boo Kisses

And Bright Sunshine Smiles

Takes every bit of Heartbreak away

Even across the Miles

Short Mother Daughter poem by Nyonglema Pisoh| Details |

New Life

Hiding in mummy's tummy, kicking happily away

 I'm kissing you warmly, clapping and singing in play

 They say in a few weeks

 I'll be able to kiss  your new cheeks

 I can't wait for the morning I'll lift you in a sway

(c) Nyonglema

Priceless pearl
my hidden diamond
love's sweet jewel

Heaven sent
Angelic countenance
Beauty so pure

Lovely daughter
your character delights
my devotion forever

Heartbeat on screen
My unbelief ceased
the moment
first squeezed my finger

For Aung San Suu Kyi

For Aung San Suu Kyi

you remained unyielding
bruised by their bayonets of power
you remained unyielding
gagged by their coarse brutality
you remained unyielding
today you return
and we salute
your spirit
that remained
and remains

Short Mother Daughter poem by April Mitchell| Details |

Where were You

Where were you
When i started to grow
Where were you
When my puberty started to show

Where were you
When my mind was confused
Where were you
When i was being misused

Where were you 
To teach me what i should know
Where were you
When i needed strength to grow

Where were you

Short Mother Daughter poem by liam mcdaid| Details |


to cherish
one moment
is to hold 
so dear

in your heart
a golden treasure
like in life
it lives with you

the angel
 whom i cherish
is my mother
who in every day 
she believes 
in me

no matter,
what wrongs i do
this angel 
lives with me
all of my life
in the heart
my mother

Short Mother Daughter poem by TOM GREEN| Details |

Can you see mee,

Someone's mother
 A wife
 Your sister
 My aunt
 Beaten abused..
 Battered an broken
 Blaming themselves
 In the shadows
 Feeling invisible
 Some are lost
 Scars are there
 Wings sprout ..
 They fly
 Can you see me?

 This is my view of growing up around women abused an violated.

Short Mother Daughter poem by Holly Wagner| Details |

Dear Mother

Dear Mother,

Thank you for the love you share,

The advice you give,

The way you care.

Thank you for the strict rules,

The constant nos 

Pointing out the surrounding fools.

I know I dont always show it,

So you may not think its true,

But no matter what happens,

I will always love you.

Short Mother Daughter poem by Debbie Duncan| Details |


He hurts me mommie 
Can you help me 
Set me free 
From this pain

Where I don't wanna be
Let me fly with the angels 
Drift on clouds past the moon

I love you mommie 
But I don't want to stay 
And live in this pain everyday 

He hurts me mommie
Can you help me
Help me, pass away

Short Mother Daughter poem by Allie Ogletree | Details |

Mother is Gone

Umbilical cord, slain

By the silver hands

Of Death-

I grieve in mourning.

Naked babe is left,

To writhe and churn,

On tethered ground,

Cold, so cold.

Mother is gone.

The hum of wings fades,

In Time's net,

Of captured dreams.

And umbilical cord, tossed

Like scraps

To the hungry chute,

Is lost.

Short Mother Daughter poem by Dave Wood| Details |


I need a Mom who's always there

Someone to care,

Who loves to play

Will always stay.

A Mom to mend my broken heart

Give a fresh start,

Who holds my hand

Gives strength to stand.

I need a Mom to find me here

To make it clear,

I'm not alone

Please take me Home!

My Darling Girl, My Black-Eyed Susan

My Darling Girl, 

your big dark eyes  met mine

against your pale skin and yellow hair

this name sang in my heart, Susan,

my Black-Eyed Susan.

A wild flower youll be, youll be a

kind friend,

loving wife,

strong mother,

sweet grandmother

and always youll be

my darling girl, my Black-Eyed Susan

One Billion Rising

Today we rise.

No more hiding in the shadows,

of culture,

No more silent complicity,

defensive arguments,
sickening pretences,
shabby excuses,

for the actions of men,

brutal and coarse and vulgar and obscene and murderous and abusive.

Today, we rise,

as one.

Today the change starts,

with me,
within me.

Today we rise.

Short Mother Daughter poem by Juanita Thorn| Details |

Working Gal

The high-class Prostitute life
Her life full of secrets and lies
Untruths and betrayals are rife
But this life she vehemently denies

Her daughter, left to fend for herself
No choice but to grow up quick
Her needs shoved to the back of a shelf
Forgotten as the dust layers grow thick.

Summer Time

Summer Time
and in the spring
the children sprout
growing up until they old
reminiscing on the past
(Summer Time)...
 So innocent and young
growing old and wise
telling true stories
to the children eyes
some young become old fools
just make sure its not you
Summer Time
and in the spring
the children sprout
growing up until they old
reminiscing on the past
(Summer Time)...

Role Reversal

I knelt down and did up her zipper -
She struggles with her sight you see
She kissed me gently on the top of my head 
Saying things I did for you as a child now you do for me

Jan Allison
12th April

The above happened yesterday - I am on massive emotional roller coaster with mum at the moment 3 amazing days and today shes not so good and Im struggling with the emotions

Short Mother Daughter poem by Juanita Thorn| Details |

My Daughter Laura

You are so important to me
I hope you know how much
I love you
And this love gets stronger
And stronger each day 
we are together
You make me laugh
You keep the smile
on my face
You are funny, smart and beautiful
I know you are an
Angel that was sent to me
I thank God for you
Every day
Stay yourself and
Be yourself.

Short Mother Daughter poem by Megha Praveen| Details |

Oh my mother

Oh my mother! you are soft as a feather,

Caring as a bird and bright as the sun,

And for me, so much fun!

Oh my mother! you are the head of the family,

You give us food and treat us good.

You are never so strict, just you scold us a bit!

Oh my mother! you are my first teacher,

You helped me to talk and helped me to walk.

Oh my mother! these are the things I liked about you.

I love you!

Short Mother Daughter poem by Mari Roberts| Details |


The phenomenal essence of all that I am
Is what you have made me
I trail in your wake
A vapor,
Remains of a constantly blazing star
You burn through the heavens and fall to the earth
Becoming rock upon which I stand. . .
Rest. . .
Raise myself to the level of forever.
Letting go the hand of the child I was while
Standing on my toes peering into the face of the woman
You enabled me to be. . .

Short Mother Daughter poem by Bobbie Jo Price| Details |

Mommy You're Gone Now

when I as 7 and would hold mommy's hand

everywhere I went, I

thought nothing bad could ever happen.

mommy's here, you're safe.

Mommy, you're gone now and 

I'm not safe anymore 

Where are you 

you never told me that you were leaving 

and that my own brother was capable of hurting me.

what am I going to do when dad comes home drunk 

and gets violent again? 

Mommy you're gone now

I'm not safe anymore

Short Mother Daughter poem by Brentni Burrola| Details |


To live in a world with so many things

What does life offer

What does it bring

Life brought me a mom but the lord took her back

And now life changed just like that

There should be a rule if you love it let it know

For life today tomorrow may go

Love in the moment for time will tangle

Yesterday a mom

Today forever an angel

Though I am on earth and she is above

Were bonded forever with

Mother-Daughter Love!!

Short Mother Daughter poem by Sami LaRose| Details |

The Devil

The devil is my mother in disguise

In case no one knew

Want to know if youre going to heaven or hell?

Come on over, shell show you

My mother is the devil

Dressed in pants and blouse 

People think shes so sweet

Until she opens her mouth

I live in hell everyday

No hope to fight the demons away

My house, you can smell the fire

When she approaches the door

She is such a whore

My mother is the devil; and nothing more.

why i am

i am me

i am mother,daughter,lover                                                                                             but i want to tell you why

why i am this way

i was a lost little girl wanting 

i was a scared litle girl crying

a question mark upon my chest

always wondering why

where did you go

why did you leave

have you never loved

do you know how to stay

safety and security only a fleeting fantasy

Short Mother Daughter poem by Hitendra Mehta| Details |

Remembering Mom


is one who first 

understood the reason of your cry


is one who first

knew how to calm you after cry


now that you are no more

I have stopped crying


other construe as weakness

I have stopped correcting them


now I direct inwards

as in soul you reside


you still calm me 

when drop touches you inside


with you in me

how can I ever be weak?

Short Mother Daughter poem by Shirley Candy| Details |

Rythm of a prayer

Let me sing this song
Dozens words in my yearning rhythm
Delivered within the wind of autumn
A single pray, only for you

In this moment of silence
Bearing clearly in my mind
The love we have given one another
In our years of sharing

You embraced me with endless love
A love that cannot be compared
And it lights my sky forever
Made me a woman I am

We are destined to have each other
Since my first breath, until your last
So I sing this song for you,

Short Mother Daughter poem by brandy wassam| Details |

a mothers love

on this special day

I doest say

that thy mother is of graceful sort

it hath been said she is devine

and I do holdeth this to be true

now dearest mother may I be so bold

to tell you the sun still shinest on one so old

as true as this be

you still grasp your faith 

like the roots of a tree

tis said you are wise

and this I have found true

the eye doeth grow deceived when it is drawn upon you 

as your thoughts become known 

only then your age is shown

Short Mother Daughter poem by John Paluszek| Details |

Skin Deep

Achilles' heel 
Youre another day older
The worlds much colder

Its not your fault
They were taken 
Dont blame yourself 
for Gods mistake

Her beauty reflects your own
Her life reflects your future
Chasing rabbits will get you there faster
Loss of faith will bring you there faster

The ball drops
Its clever to see
What happens to us
And here we are

Take the evil out of this
Youre stronger
Shes stronger and always,

Short Mother Daughter poem by Perry Campanella| Details |

Your My Dear Friend

We have been together
treasured joy now for many years
we trust each other with our
emotions, with affection, tears,

Any day when you are sick or hurting
I feel your pain - significant other,
when eighter-one needs attention
we help one another...

These mutual friendly feelings
for assistance, approval, support
form our tight bonds,
usually never broken

Sharing visions, time together
we respect each other,
regardless of shortcomings
I know you, "I love you anyway"

Short Mother Daughter poem by Tracy Marie Windisch Mason| Details |



The Blossoming

Within shivers
Hot like
Hides he
Phantom yet
Passes her
So shyly
Dark tresses
Diamond like
Halls grow dark
Haunts her
This want
Disco ball
Of tentatively
Walks within new 
Cursed within
Like shards pang
A lullaby 
I can
No longer
Hold her so
Yet so far
This new life
In Solo
She sings


Short Mother Daughter poem by Archana Garg| Details |

My Daughter

Sometimes she is SWEET n sometimes STRAIGHT.


sometimes BOASTFUL n sometimes BORING.

her CUTE TALKS make her my BESTEST MATE.


whatever i say she DOESN'T MIND.

dishonesty is something she HATE.


she is SILLY but LOYAL n NICE.

CARELESS sometimes, sometimes CARING. 

may god bless her with BESTEST FATE.

im sorry mom

the wind is blowing,
my blood is flowing,
the thoughts of u are in my head,
trying to get out of this bed,
u made me crazy, thinking of how i made u sick,
the wrong i've done, in two im gonna split,
i need to show u, that ive changed,
there is a price i have to pay,
your heart is filled with hate and disgrace,
i lied to u, but im going to make ur pain fly away,
show u a way, that i am the same,
the little girl that was ur angel,
the little girl that was ur best freind, ur daughter..

Short Mother Daughter poem by Toni Kane| Details |

My Girl

Shes the air that I breathe.

Shes the beat in my heart.

Shes the tear in my eyes

when were apart.

Shes the pride that I feel,

with all she achieves.

Im the one who gives hope,

in what she believes.

Shes a part of my body,

but now shes all grown.

as she waves me goodbye,

to find a life of her own.

My beautiful girl,

youve grown up so fine.

So proud am I

to know that youre mine.

To My Mother RIP

We've had our differences, we've had our fights,

Now you're gone, yet Im doin alright.

A month and ten days it'll be four years,

I miss you mom, and I wish you were here.

It was crazy times and a war,

But I still wish you were here and we'd party at the bar.

I think of you often and miss your voice,

But it's not like we had any other choice.

One day we shall meet again,

And who knows... Maybe next time we could be friends.

Love you. R.I.P. Teresa Marie Reese (8/13/1964-8/18/2009)

Short Mother Daughter poem by jaycel frances tamayao| Details |



Seven years Ive been waiting for
A Christmas with you I wish for
Just like the other years that passed by
My wish for Christmas never gone by

A thought bothered my mind
How do you feel fine?
How do I feel fine?
If it breaks your soul it breaks mine.

Everything you have to sacrifice
A tear drops in your eyes
I wish I could make it dry
But I too cant stop myself to cry

I hope he will grant my wish
If not now, maybe next year
I would still be waiting here
The same wish that I wished.

Short Mother Daughter poem by juliet Hail| Details |

a mothers love

 a mothers love is stronger than all and she knows her daughter better than all 
a mothers love is never bitter and never vengefully 
a mothers love is always kind and there no matter what you do
a mothers love is forever a bond between a girl and her mother is always a strong on but it gets stronger as they grow up and it gets even stronger as the girl moves away calls and calls then less and less.... then you worried about the bond but no worries that's a bond that cant be broken nor replaced
