Mother Poems. Read and share your gratitude and admiration with beautiful poems about and for our moms. Nothing can replace a good mother in our lives, and we often want to share words of appreciation with the woman who raised us and who shares a special place in our hearts. A mother’s love profoundly influences her child’s development, which is why we owe so much to these beautiful women. Sadly, they are not always with us, and not a day goes by when their memory is not with us.

Child of War
Bombs blasting so near,
child of war covers her ears,
mother is gone no where to be seen,
sheet covers broken window,
blocks the light but not the screams
of the dying next door.

Child is hungry and eats stale bread on floor,
A dirty cotton dress...Read More

Our meeting
And my greeting
It’s nice to see you
It was overdue,
I see you every day
You never came my way,
Once I’ve got the spirit
Yet I’ve got nothing illicit.

I know what you mean
I also was keen;
I hoped you asked me out
For about you...Read More

Molly Lori
Eternal waves, cascade for days
Sun dried and free, they frame her face
Twirls and spins, cinnamon skin
Sky blue eyes, magnetic grin

To the T, my mini me
But more than I could hope to be
Angelic, sweet, glitter tipped feet
If I’m a song, she’s...Read More

Africa starving, droughts that go for years
Ask yourself who amongst you really cares

Who; really took it all on board, their strife
Life was cheap to every child that lost a life

Sealed from Human Eyes
Sealed from human eyes,
Veiled in shawls of the mist - 
Like the Arabian lady so shy...

All standing together,
Never far from each other,
Always holding hands...

The deer, the river, the pines,
In a perfect life so wild,
Its jewel of peace survives...

Mother nature thrives,

“Your Finest Hour”

from isolation
a heart torn

absorbed in the mother vein

And bury it into my Earth,

All in the Family

Patricia’s father has a brother,
which makes him her uncle,
and she by law his niece.
All are very close and amiable.

Now her older brother Jim
had a son, namely Matthew
and that naturally made him
her fleshly nephew. 

As it happened they fell in love

Mother natures Cure
The world is gently sleeping
breathing in the fresh air
its repairing, rejuveating.
Recovering from the virus 
her temperature still rising.
And life support is still needed 
her  oxygen deplenished 
Yet mother nature is still weeping
in despair at human kind.

When I know I’m down and out,
When I feel sad and need to cry;
When the pains are intolerable,
Everything begins to go awry.

I realise the devil has the best tunes.

When darkness comes upon me,

My Mom and Her Home
These old stones 
have undressed their 
plaster-clothes. Her roof
is tattered, yet she declines my call.

Fashion and novelty
never tempt her. Her soles 
sometimes soil her floor, but she
doesn’t fear a stretched-out  index finger. 

She refuses a share 
of yummy Chinese...Read More
