Angel Mother

Mother, you’re the angel
who brought me into being
and watched over me.
You guided me, sheltered me,
repaired and restored me.
When I was lost,
your focused attention
and unconditional love
lifted me and showed me the way.
I give you the credit
for the best parts of who I am today.
I don’t have words or gifts,
or anything that’s worth enough
to let you know
what having you in my life has meant to me.
Happy Mother’s Day, Mom.
I love you with all my heart.

Creating memories they would always treasure.

Force of Nature

On Mother’s Day, I realize
you’re a force of nature, Mom.
You’re the earth—keeping me grounded
when I want to float toward trouble.
You’re water—cooling and cleansing my brain
of unwanted, draining thoughts.
You’re fire, burning with

You’re wind, pushing me
back on the path
when I lose my way.
On Mother’s Day, I realize
I couldn’t be me without you.

You Taught Me

You taught me the important things,
The way a mother should.

No matter what the cost;
You said for every angry act,
A part of myself was lost.

You taught me crucial lessons, Mom,
I never will forget.
For your wisdom and affection,
I’m forever in your debt.

Mothers Day Poem From Son

Here's a rhyming poem that could be used as a Mothers Day poem from a son.

Best Mom Award

For all the things I didn't say,
About how I felt along the way--
For the love you gave and the work you've done,
Here's appreciation from your admiring son.

You cared for me as a little tot,
When all I did was cry a lot,
And as I grew your work did too--
I ran and fell and got black and blue.

I grew some more and it didn't stop;
Now you had to become a cop,
To worry about mistakes I'd make;
You kept me in line for my own sake.

I got older, and the story repeated;
You were always there whenever I needed.
You guided me and wished me the best,
I became wiser and knew I was blessed.

So, for all the times I didn't say,
The love I felt for you each day,
Mom, read this so you can always see
Just how much you mean to me.

Mom, Thanks for everything!

This simple mom song is sung, even by young children, to the tune of “Row, row, row your boat,” so it’s a Mothers Day song that can be performed as a round, which means that one group sings the first line and then the next group starts the first line, and so on. We also have a Mothers Day Song for older children and adults. Sung to the tune of "Greensleeves," it's called Love Is A Mother's Gift.

My mom is really great;
She’s sweet as she can be;
When I need some help, I know
She’s always there for me.

Even when I’m a pest;
She always takes good care of me;
My mother is the best.

The Fruit of the Spirit

My mother is a Christian,
In every important way;
The fruit of the Holy Spirit
Is displayed in her every day.

My mother is filled with kindness,
With love and joy and peace;
Her patience and her goodness
Inspire, and never cease.

She follows our Lord Jesus
With faithfulness, and more;
She’s gentle and has self control,
She knows what prayer is for.

Thanks, Mom, for being a Christian,
And showing me how to be;
I’ll follow your example
For all eternity.

Lord, please take good care of my sweet mother.

Here's another Christian Mothers Day poem in the form of a free verse Mothers Day prayer. These Christian Mothers Day poems can be used at public occasions or events honoring mothers. 

Bless Our Mothers: A Mother's Day Prayer

Dear Lord,
today we pray for mothers--
our own mothers, and mothers everywhere,
who have made such a major contribution
to the good qualities we have,
sometimes through genetics,
more often through great effort and patient instruction,
and who have done their best
to gently polish away our rough edges.

Lord, please bless our mothers
for the endless hours of time they spent
and the boundless energy they invested in us.
Bless our mothers for their sacrifices on our behalf
as they often gave up or deferred their own dreams
so that we could have ours.

Bless our mothers for always being there for us,
for being the person we know we can turn to
when we need comfort, encouragement, or just a hug.

Bless our mothers for making a home for us
where we could feel safe, where we felt we belonged.
Most of all, Lord,
bless our mothers for their unconditional love,
for loving us no matter what,
and for frequently showing love
in ways that make us feel valued and cherished.

Lord, please bless our mothers mightily.
Strengthen them, soothe them,
wrap them in Your infinite love
and shower them with blessings
too numerous to count, too magnificent to describe.

We love them, admire them, respect them,
and we wish that You would give them back
many times the good they gave to us.
In Jesus' name we pray; Amen.
