Hi, Mom!"

33. Always Mom – Anonymous

No matter the miles between you, mom is still there.

You were my fairy tale princess,
So much larger than life.
You were my angel and my witness
Through all my pain and strife.
At times you made me angry,
Great words I would proclaim
How someday you'd be sorry.
You were the one to blame.
But when I needed comforting
You always found the time.
Your words were more soothing
Than days of childhood sublime.
Now the distance holds us apart,
The boundaries have no end.
I'll hold the memories in my heart.
You're my mother, my best friend.

34. Mother - Sumita Datta

Sometimes the little things are the most remembered.

Mother is she who spends sleepless night to make you sleep
Mother is she who understands you from the very deep
Mother is she who will laugh and cry along with you.
Mother is she who teaches how to drink, eat and how to chew


35. My Dear Mom! - Anonymous

Simple appreciative memories.

Mom, I loved you yesterday, I love you tomorrow and everyday.
You were there for me my first day of school, to hold my hand and give me courage to go.
You listened to me when I needed to talk, you talked to me when I needed to listen.
You let me grow and learn from my own mistakes.
You never left my side when I was feeling down, I knew you would be there to pick me up.
I wish there was a way I could repay all the things you have done for me, but there's nothing great enough to repay the greatest mother of all.

39. Mother's Love - Anjana Asok

Of all the people in the world, mom is the most everlasting friend.

Mother is a word that is full of love,
care and joy that we may wonder how?
no matter if you are the worst,

40. A Mother's Love – Anonymous

The lasting power of unconditional love.

To some love is just a word
To me it's a feeling
A feeling I get every time I look into your eyes
A feeling I get when I realize you're my mom
A mom who loves, shares,
A mom who inspires
What's that?
That's love
A mothers love, but only you would know
And me
You returned that love time and time again
Possibly to much, nevertheless you did
Thank-you for being there when I needed you most
For being my rock when I should have been yours
Thank-you for believing in me, even when I doubted myself
For being the one person I could trust
No matter what, no matter where
But most of all thank-you for being you-my mom
A mom I am so proud to claim
I love you
Now and forever

41. Your Arms Were Always Open – Anonymous

Mom is always there, whenever you need a friend.

when I needed a lesson
Your strength and love
guided me and gave me wings
to help me soar.

And I love all your style.

44. No One More Lovely - Charlotte Carpenter

Win a few easy brownie points with a touch of flattery.

She Walks in elegance whose heart
Is filled with beauty, like the spring
Her gentleness is but a part
Of all the joy her graces bring.
The things she taught me at her knee
Are honesty and faith and love,
No one is lovelier than she
Whose soul is joined with things above.

Growing up, my ideals were
Barbra Streisand, Cher, and my mom.
- Kevyn Aucoin

45. Wings – Anonymous

So simple, yet so profound.

You've given me two things
One is roots
The other's wings

46. Happy Mother's Day – Anonymous

Celebrating the meaning of Mother's day.

"Happy Mother's Day" means more
Than have a happy day.
Within those words lie lots of things
We never get to say.
It means I love you first of all,
Then thanks for all you do.
It means you mean a lot to me,
And that I honor you.
But most of all, I guess it means
That I am thinking of
Your happiness on this, your day,
With pleasure and with love

47. Mother – Anonymous

For the mom that never took her age too seriously.

They were lovely, all the mothers
of the days of long ago,
With their gentle, quiet faces
And their hair as white as snow.
They were middle-aged at forty,
at fifty donned lace caps
And at sixty clung to shoulder shawls
and loved their little naps.
But I love the modern mother
who can share in all our joys,
And who understands the problem
of her growing girls and boys.
She may boast that she's older
but her heart is twenty-three...
My glorious bright-eyed mother
Who is keeping young with me.

48. I learned from you - Joanna Fuchs

Because you're mom's pride and joy.

I learned about love from you,
Watching your caring ways.
I learned about joy from you
In fun-filled yesterdays.

49. What is a Mother - J. Kyler McManus

All those things that mean so much to a kid.

What is a Mother?-
She's someone who shares
In all of your problems,
Your joys and your cares-
Someone who gives you
Right from the start
The warmth and the loves
Of her motherly heart
Someone who's loyal
And helpful and dear
And seems to grow more so
As year follows year
Life is much brighter
And happier, too
Because there are Mothers-
Mothers like you.

baby 50. Thank You Mom – Anonymous

Forgive me, but now I know how much you mean to me.

I know how often I took you for granted
when I was growing up.
I always assumed you'd be there
when I needed you...
and you always were.
But I never really thought about what that meant
till I got older and began to realize
how often your time and energy were devoted to me.
so now, for all the times I didn't say it before,
thank you, Mom.... I love you so very much!

51. You let me know you love me - Joanna Fuchs

All the ways a mother shows her love.

You let me know you love me
In so many different ways.
You make me feel important
With encouragement and praise.

52. M-O-T-H-E-R - Howard Johnson

The definition of mother in a spelled rhyme.

"M" is for the million things she gave me,
"O" means only that she's growing old,
"T" is for the tears she shed to save me,
"H" is for her heart of purest gold;
"E" is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
"R" means right, and right she'll always be,
Put them all together, they spell "MOTHER,"
A word that means the world to me.

53. Mother's Hands - Dyncan Wylie

Artfully retold memories of years gone by.

Mother's hands took us to school
Mother's hands in the morning
Mother's hands rain, protecting us
Mother's hands act as awning
Mother's hands would hold our face
Mother's hands held the tears
Mother's hands braille our face
Mother's hands read our fears

54. Mom – Anonymous

Sometimes moms give up a lot to raise wonderful children.

Mom, for all these years
I'm sure you've had
a heart full of hopes and dreams
and special longings of your own.
And you've always listened and shared
my dreams, my wishes, and my heartaches
as if they were the only ones in the world...
That takes a lot of love, Mom
I understand that now
and I hope you realize
how much I thank you...
how much I love you...
and how much I wish you happiness.

55. Mother – John Greenleaf Whittier

Looking back on the years she helped you grow wise.

A picture memory brings to me;
I look across the years and see
Myself beside my mother's knee.
I feel her gentle hand restrain
My selfish moods, and know again
A child's blind sense of wrong and pain.
But wiser now,
a (wo)man gray grown,
My childhood's needs are better known.
My mother's chastening love I own.

My mom never taught me
to be waiting for some prince on a white horse
to swipe me off my feet.
- Tyra Banks

56. My Miracle Mother - Joanna Fuchs

For the mom that just seems impossibly perfect.

Mom, I look at you
and see a walking miracle.
Your unfailing love without limit,
your ability to soothe my every hurt,
the way you are on duty, unselfishly,
every hour, every day,
makes me so grateful
that I am yours, and you are mine.

57. Ode to Mothers – Kristin F. McKendall

Mothers are human, and can only do so much.

Mothers cannot do it all
But surely do they try.

Mothers hear the angel's call,
To comfort all who cry.

Mothers for themselves may fall,
For others they will fly.

Mother's bear the weight of all,
For their children, they would die.

A Mother's gift extends beyond
All bounds of time and space.

Her lovingness and nurturing
Make Earth a peaceful place.

58. Precious Mother – Anonymous

There's a bond between you that just has no competition.

Mom You've given me so much,
Love from your heart and the warmth of your touch.
The gift of life and you're a friend to me.
We have a very Special Bond...
I'm sure you agree.
As a child I would say Mommy I Love You,
Now you're my Mother so dear
I love you even more with each and every new year.
If I could had chosen, I would have picked no other.
Than for you ... to be my lifelong friend and Precious Mother.

59. What "mother" means - Karl Fuchs

Mom helped you become all that you are.

"Mother" is such a simple word,
But to me there's meaning seldom heard.
For everything I am today,
My mother's love showed me the way.

60. I Wish I Could Tell You Mom – Anonymous

Some things are just impossible to express.

I wish I could tell you, Mom
how much you mean to me....
But there are no words to say
how much I admire you...
how much I appreciate you...
how much I thank you
for everything you've done.

61. Mother... - Anonymous

The wonderful progression of a mom's role.

When you're a child she walks before you,
To set an example.
When you're a teenager she walks behind you
To be there should you need her.
When you're an adult she walks beside you
So that as two friends you can enjoy life together...

62. As I look Back - Anonymous

Trying to make up for a few missed thank you's.

As I look back on my life
I find myself wondering.....
Did I remember to thank you
for all that you have done for me?
For all of the times you were by my side
to help me celebrate my successes
and accept my defeats?
Or for teaching me the value of hard work,
good judgement, courage, and honesty?
I wonder if I've ever thanked you for the simple things...
The laughter, smiles, and quiet times we've shared?
If I have forgotten to express my gratitude
For any of these things,
I am thanking you now....
and I am hoping that you've known all along,
how very much you are loved and appreciated.

63. Everything mom - Joanna Fuchs

Amazing all the hats a mom wears!

How did you find the energy, Mom
To do all the things you did,
To be teacher, nurse and counselor
To me, when I was a kid.

64. To My Mother – Anonymous

Simple but somehow touches on every detail.

For all the times you gently picked me up,
When I fell down,
For all the times you tied my shoes
And tucked me into bed,
Or needed something
But put me first instead.
For everything we shared,
The dreams, the laughter,
And the tears,
I love you with a "Special Love"
That deepens every year..

65. You Were There – Anonymous

You may have gone your separate ways, but mom is where home is.

You were there when we took our first steps,
And went unsteadily across the floor.
You pushed and prodded: encouraged and guided,
Until our steps took us out the door...
You worry now "Are they ok?"
Is there more you could have done?
As we walk the paths of our unknown
You wonder"Where have my children gone?"
Where we are is where you have led us,
With your special love you showed us a way,
To believe in ourselves and the decisions we make.
Taking on the challenge of life day-to-day.
And where we go you can be sure,
In spirit you shall never be alone.
For where you are is what matters most to us,
Because to us that will always be home...

66. Super mom - Joanna Fuchs

For the mother that took extra special care in loving you.

Mom, you're a wonderful mother,
So gentle, yet so strong.
The many ways you show you care
Always make me feel I belong.

67. Mother – Anonymous

Love is so much more valuable than anything material.

If I could give you diamonds
for each tear you cried for me.
if I could five you sapphires
for each truth you've helped me see.
If I could give you rubies
for the heartache that you've known
If I could give you pearls
for the wisdom that you've shown.
Then you'll have a treasure, mother,
that would mount up to the skies
That would almost match
the sparkle in your kind and loving eyes. But I have no pearls, no diamonds,
As I'm sure you're well aware
So I'll give you gifts more precious
My devotion, love and care.
