Poems for Sons to Their Mothers
Sentiments from sons to Mothers ...
"My mom passed away a day before high school
and her dream was for me to be
a full rock and roll
guy, and play drums in a band."
- Travis Barker
24. From a son, Best Mom award - Karl Fuchs
Mom, your hero.
For all the things I didn't say,
About how I felt along the way--
For the love you give and the work you've done,
Here's appreciation from your admiring son.
25. Another Man's Wife – Anonymous
Cheerful, short, and definitely good for a laugh.
The happiest days of my life
Were spent in the arms of another man's wife
Thanks, Mum, for everything
26. Untitled - William Ross Wallace
For the mom that took on the world – and won.
They say that man is mighty,
He governs land and sea,
He wields a mighty spectre,
O'er lesser powers that be,
But a mightier power and stronger,
Man from his throne has hurled,
For the hand that rocks the cradle,
Is the hand that rocks the world.
27. Motherhood - Joaquin Miller
For the mother that is also a lover of classic literature.
The bravest battle that ever was fought!
Shall I tell you where and when?
On the maps of the world you will find it not;
'Twas fought by the mothers of men.
Nay not with the cannon of battle-shot,
With a sword or noble pen;
Nay, not with eloquent words or thought
From mouth of wonderful men!
But deep in a walled-up woman's heart -
Of a woman that would not yield,
But bravely, silently bore her part -
Lo, there is the battlefield!
No marshalling troops, no bivouac song,
No banner to gleam and wave;
But oh! those battles, they last so long -
From babyhood to the grave.
Yet, faithful still as a bridge of stars,
She fights in her walled-up town -
Fights on and on in her endless wars,
Then silent, unseen, goes down.
Oh, ye with banners and battle-shot,
And soldiers to shout and paise!
I tell you the kingliest victories fought
Were fought in those silent ways.
O spotless woman in a world of shame,
With splendid and silent scorn,
Go back to God as white as you came -
The Kingliest warrior born!
28. A Poem for Mothers, and Mine – Glaedr
Bringing back those boyhood memories to show mom how much you loved it all.
The love of a mother is beyond compare
One who dearly loves and is always there
From scraped knees
To falls from trees
