Poems, Songs, Quotations & Prayer
Profound, beautiful, sage or even lighthearted, lyrical words crystallize feelings of love and appreciation toward Mom in a festive, devotional and thankful manner. Many people, in fact, feel a natural urge to write verse or sing special songs on Mother’s Day—it almost can’t be helped. The holiday itself was even created with a poem!
A Mothers Day poem, whether from your own heart or the pen of another may simply strike a chord with either you or Mom. Use poetry to convey your thoughts and feelings about Mom or what she has meant to your life.
Here are a few of our favorites:
Ode to Mothers
Mothers cannot do it all
Mothers hear the angel's call,
Mothers for themselves may fall,
Mother's bear the weight of all,
A Mother's gift extends beyond
Her lovingness and nurturing
- Kristin F. McKendall
When Mother Reads Aloud
When Mother reads aloud, the past
When Mother reads aloud, far lands
When Mother reads aloud, I long
Song and Music
Music really is the soundtrack to our lives. Whether you choose to write your own or even create a special CD mix, Mom will be able to listen over and over.
Through their writing, speeches, music and conversations, great men women—Moms too—have crafted marvelous words in honor of Motherhood. A well-chosen quotation about Mom may help encapsulate exactly what you want to say.
