Tears of a child

I hear
Each night she cries
Tears like crystalline rain;
They pierce my heart like frozen knives,
Sink deep

Every heartbeat is bestowed upon,
Compassion embraces a child eternally
That uplifts a child’s 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 Brandi Elizabeth Brown| Details | |


In a sunny moment of the morning
We were driving down the road
Mom looked at me in the rearview mirror
"You know, you're a pretty girl," she said
And I smiled and turned my head
Out the window
"Sometimes I think so."

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 Eileen R. Kelly| Details | |


She birthed me a star...
Her inner galaxy well travelled.

Seized by womb impact...
Silence - Rattled

Tone tormented yet blissful sigh...

Return to the source - yield rescue the cry...

Triumph this claim as we draw near...
Partake in this memory...

We both share.

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 Lyric Man| 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!

A Minute Poem

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 no’s 
Pointing out the surrounding fools.
I know I don’t always show it,
So you may not think it’s 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.

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 you’ll be, you’ll be a

kind friend,

loving wife,

strong mother,

sweet grandmother

and always you’ll be

my darling girl, my Black-Eyed Susan

mother,daughter,aunt, and wife
sister of Lois and Penny
Lover of poetry, nature, and cooking
who feels pain,heartache, and failure
who fears losing those she loves, snakes, and other critters
who would like to see the Jack Daniel's distillery, the mts. and a secluded cabin area
resident of Ft. Loramie, ohio

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.

Short Mother Daughter poem by Carmen Sunshine| Details | |


Kindhearted loving daughter
Always smiling, and enchanting 
She stole my heart when she was born
A few mistakes I would make along the way but 
Nestled in my arms I knew she would become the 
Daughter I would love and cherish forever and a day
Remembering that moment, I've come to realize that 
A beautiful young woman has blossomed right before my eyes

Short Mother Daughter poem by Michelle Edwards| Details | |

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 she’s not so good and I’m struggling with the emotions

Sweetest Child Alouette

Mom you're so lovely!
Like my lil’ bunny!
Your arms are fluffy and soft;
Want to hold you more;
Makes me feel secure;
With your hands all of me oft,

Mom you're so cuddly!
Want you beside me!
Wake me up a lil’ later;
Miss you so by then;
Like I miss you when
My eyes close and you’re not there.

* overheard my niece talking to her Mom as she was put to bed :))

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.

Giving Me Strength

I was often scared as a child,
I would close my eyes tight.
Things always seemed to go wrong,
When would they ever go right?

A lot of things happened, 
When I was very young.
Now the memories are fading,
Except the sad songs life had sung.

My mother gave me strength.
She gave me the power to live. 
My mother was the one who needed strength,
But taking advantage of her was all I did. 

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!!

The Devil

The devil is my mother in disguise
In case no one knew
Want to know if you’re going to heaven or hell?
Come on over, she’ll show you
My mother is the devil
Dressed in pants and blouse 
People think she’s 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.

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

Gender Discrimination

Who are you
Your father's son or daughter
Or your mothers?
If you are your father's
You gotta have his surname
But if you are your mother's
Her name you don't take
But once you get married
Oh, boy! Your surname won't change
Hey girls, What makes you change your surname?
This is anomalous
Seemingly unfair
An assault on women rights
A blow to the fair sex
Whoever hath made this rule
He must be a damn big fool!!

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?

The Chosen one

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,

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 
You’re another day older
The world’s much colder

It’s not your fault
They were taken 
Don’t blame yourself 
for God’s 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
It’s clever to see
What happens to us
And here we are

Take the evil out of this
You’re stronger
She’s 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

She’s the air that I breathe.
She’s the beat in my heart.
She’s the tear in my eyes
when we’re apart.

She’s the pride that I feel,
with all she achieves.
I’m the one who gives hope,
in what she believes.

She’s a part of my body,
but now she’s all grown.
as she waves me goodbye,
to find a life of her own.

My beautiful girl,
you’ve grown up so fine.
So proud am I
to know that you’re mine.

Short Mother Daughter poem by jaycel frances tamayao| Details | |



Seven years I’ve 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 can’t 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.

To My Mother RIP

We've had our differences, we've had our fights,
Now you're gone, yet I’m 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)

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
