Poems for Mum

Joy (Adoption poem)
by April M. Gates

I have a little girl,
Mckaylie is her name,
It’s hard to believe, because we don’t look the same.
Joy is what she brings me everyday,
I could not imagine life any other way.
Each day she learns something new,
Where she got her smarts, I have no clue.
It has been two years since she came to me,
Her growing up so fast is all I see.
I never knew my love for someone could be so strong,
My angel showed me I was so wrong.
Even though there are times she is bad,
If I had to live without her, I’d be sad.
There is a reason she was brought into my life,
If I had to do it over again, I wouldn’t think twice.
Mckaylie, I love you with all my heart,
I hope nothing in life will ever tear us apart!

Her Hands
by Maggie Pittman

Her hands held me gently from the day I took my first breath.
Her hands helped to guide me as I took my first step.
Her hands held me close when the tears would start to fall.
Her hands were quick to show me that she would take care of it all.

Her hands were there to brush my hair, or straighten a wayward bow.
Her hands were often there to comfort the hurts that didn’t always show.
Her hands helped hold the stars in place, and encouraged me to reach.
Her hands would clap and cheer and praise when I captured them at length.

Her hands would also push me, though not down or in harms way.
Her hands would punctuate the words, just do what I say.
Her hands sometimes had to discipline, to help bend this young tree.
Her hands would shape and mold me into all she knew I could be.

Her hands are now twisting with age and years of work,
Her hand now needs my gentle touch to rub away the hurt.
Her hands are more beautiful than anything can be.
Her hands are the reason I am me.

A Poem For Mom
by Champagne S. Baker

You are the sunlight in my day,
You are the moon I see far away.
You are the tree I lean upon,
You are the one that makes troubles be gone.
You are the one who taught me life,
How not to fight, and what is right.
You are the words inside my song,
You are my love, my life, my mom.
You are the one who cares for me,
You are the eyes that help me see.
You are the one who knows me best,
When it’s time to have fun and time to rest.
You are the one who has helped me to dream,
You hear my heart and you hear my screams.
Afraid of life but looking for love,
I’m blessed for God sent you from above.
You are my friend, my heart, and my soul
You are the greatest friend I know.
You are the words inside my song,
You are my love, my life, my Mom.

Mother
by Gary

Mother means a familiar face
Mother is a familiar place
Mother will be there in this life and the next
Mother has been there through all the rest
Mother knows just what to say
Mother can brighten the darkest of day
Mother was there when your life started to stutter
Mother loves you like no other
Mother can make everything fine
Mother will be there through out time
Mother hasn’t left you here all alone
Mother has raised you to be on your own
Mother has and will be proud
Mother is hiding behind the clouds
Mother did not leave you to soon
Mother was here to watch you bloom
Mother loves you more than you know
Mothers love will always grow
Mother is Mother that’s all I can say
Mother loves you each and every day

Mother, A Cradle to Hold Me
by Maya Angelou

It is true,
I was created in you.
It is also true
That you were created for me.
I owned your voice.
It was shaped and tuned to soothe me.
Your arms were molded
Into a cradle to hold me, to rock me.
The scent of your body was the air
Perfumed for me to breathe.

Mother,
During those early, dearest days
I did not dream that you had
A large life which included me,
For I had a life
Which was only you.

Time passed steadily and drew us apart.
I was unwilling.
I feared if I let you go
You would leave me eternally.
You smiled at my fears, saying
I could not stay in your lap forever.
That one day you would have to stand
And where would I be?
You smiled again.
I did not.
Without warning you left me,
But you returned immediately.
You left again and returned,
I admit, quickly,
But relief did not rest with me easily.
You left again, but again returned.
You left again, but again returned.
Each time you reentered my world
You brought assurance.
Slowly I gained confidence.

You thought you know me,
But I did know you,
You thought you were watching me,
But I did hold you securely in my sight,
Recording every moment,
Memorizing your smiles, tracing your frowns.
In your absence
I rehearsed you,
The way you had of singing
On a breeze,
While a sob lay
At the root of your song.

The way you posed your head
So that the light could caress your face
When you put your fingers on my hand
And your hand on my arm,
I was blessed with a sense of health,
Of strength and very good fortune.

160141709 Happy familyYou were always
the heart of happiness to me,
Bringing nougats of glee,
Sweets of open laughter.

I loved you even during the years
When you knew nothing
And I knew everything, I loved you still.
Condescendingly of course,
From my high perch
Of teenage wisdom.
I spoke sharply of you, often
Because you were slow to understand.
I grew older and
Was stunned to find
How much knowledge you had gleaned.
And so quickly.

Mother, I have learned enough now
To know I have learned nearly nothing.
On this day
When mothers are being honored,
Let me thank you
That my selfishness, ignorance, and mockery
Did not bring you to
Discard me like a broken doll
Which had lost its favor.
I thank you that
You still find something in me
To cherish, to admire and to love.

I thank you, Mother.
I love you.

My mum
by Susan Smith

My darling mum, you’re everything
I cannot begin to say,
You’ve loved, cared and brought me up
You’ve made me who I am today,
You’ve always been there for me
And showered me with concern,
You’re my guardian angel
You’re my mum and my best friend.

A Mother
by Anonymous

A Mother is one who
understands the things
you say and do

Who always overlooks
your faults and sees the
best in you

A Mother is one whose
special love inspires you
day by day.

Who fills your heart with
gladness in her warm
and thoughtful way.

A Mother is all these things
and more – the greatest
treasure known.

And the dearest Mother in
all of the world is the one I
call my own.

A Mother’s Love
by Michael O. Adesanya

There are times only when a Mother’s love
Can understand our tears,
Can soothe our disappointments
And calm all our fears.

There are times when only a Mother’s Love
Can share the joy we feel
When something we’ve dreamed about
Quite suddenly is real.

There are times when only a Mother’s faith
Can help on life’s way
And inspire in us the confidence
We need from day to day.

For a Mother’s heart and a Mother’s faith
And a Mother’s steadfast love
Were fashioned by the Angels
And sent from God above…
