Poems of Gratitude and Love:

“A Mother’s Love”
by Helen Steiner Rice
A mother’s love is like a beacon,
Burning bright with faith and prayer,
And through the changing scenes of life,
We can find a haven there.

“A Mother’s Hands” by Anon
A mother’s hands are gentle, yet strong,
They wipe away tears and guide us along.
With love and care, they shape our days,
In countless ways, they show us the way.

“My Mother, My Angel” by Anon
My mother, my angel, my guiding light,
You’ve been with me through every plight.
Your love is a beacon that shines so bright,
Forever grateful, day and night.

“Thank You, Mom” by Joanna Fuchs
For all the times you dried my tears,
And chased away my fears,
For every smile you brought my way,
I thank you, Mom, on this special day.

“A Mother’s Prayer” by Helen Steiner Rice
Lord, bless my children, keep them near,
Guide them with love, and calm their fear.
Grant them strength and courage to face each day,
And let them know that you’re never far away.

“A Wish for You” by Anon
Just one little wish for you, Mom,
But it’s loving and happy and true –
It’s a wish that the nicest and best things
Will always keep coming to you!

“Wishing You a Wonderful Day” by Anon
Sending this, Mom,
Especially to say
Wishing you a happy
And wonderful day…
And to tell you this day
Will always be one
For remembering the many
Sweet things you have done!

“Super Mom” By Joanna Fuchs
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!

“Mother & Daughter” by Anon
It’s a special bond that spans the years,
through laughter, worry, smiles, and tears.
A sense of trust that can’t be broken,
a depth of love sometimes unspoken.
A lifelong friendship built on sharing,
hugs and kisses, warmth and caring.
Mother and daughter, their hearts as one –
a link that can never be undone.
~ Unknown.

“Short Mother’s Day Poem” by Anon
There is no doubt Mom,
you’re the best.
The one and only.
I’m proud to be your son.
And I’d like to thank you for
the loving things you’ve done.
