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.

A Beautiful Noise
A Beautiful Noise

When I step outside
early in the morning.
I can’t help hearing
birds singing.
Greeting the day
in their special way.
a cacophony of birdsong
Mother Nature’s music
A beautiful noise.

Our fine feathered friends,
birds of a feather.
Giving their voice
in fair weather.
In the city, 
in the forest.
And...Read More

I try to create silence in the colors
when I decorate my home
The rooms have their own high pitched atmosphere
Where the artist has painted
the smallest and finest details
My favorite artist is, Mother Nature
Nature has its own palette
and soft brushes

Optimizing freedom zest
Challenging mother’s tidiness best
My son whirls himself around
Oblivious that he’s wheel-chair bound.

Loosening mobility gear
His spastic hands hurl things everywhere
Zooming beyond glee’s ecstasy
He’s waged war against my mess-flee policy.

Entangled around disarray’s coil
My mind screams, devoid of nagging turmoil
Special child...Read More

Painful bloody tears
My child, the one i left under the care of flies

Cos i'm unworthy to...Read More

Someone's daughter
Someone's lover
Someone's sister to
Someone's brother

Someone's niece
The list is endless
It doesn't cease
Someone's wife and
Someone's friend
Someone's mother
It still doesn't end
Someone's Godmother

Nobody is nothing

When just a child the poet's mom said "Son,
Throughout your life beware the sin of pride.
Remember this when every day is done,
What counts the most is who you are inside."

At first he thought his mother's words unfair
For recognition surely has...Read More

True Pain
The truth is
nobody really cares
they say they do
but really,
they don't even remember.
They aren't reminded each day
of this gaping hole in our hearts.
Reality is transposed
and it's us four against the world.
No matter how many prayers,
how many messages,
how many hugs.
No amount of...Read More
