Mother's Day Poem Inspiration

Best friends forever -- Mom and me.
Picking flowers and climbing trees.
A shoulder to cry on, secrets to share,
Warm hearts and hands that really care.
-- Author Unknown

Your arms were always open when I needed a hug.
Your heart understood when I needed a friend.
Your gentle eyes were stern when I needed a lesson.
Your strength and love guided me and gave me wings to soar.|
-- Sarah Malin

To my mother, who is the best,
Who built our home, our cozy nest.
On Mother's Day, I want you to know,
My love for you will always grow.
-- Abby Wolner

Mom, you're amazing
You're one-of-a-kind.
You cheer me up,
And you can read my mind.
Sometimes you read it far too well,
You know when I don't have a clue,
But I guess that's why you're the mom,
And why I need you as much as I do.
-- Abby Wolner

Mom, you've given me two things.
One is roots, the other wings.
-- Author Unknown

When you look at me it's clear to see,
My mother is a true beauty.
-- Abby Wolner

My mom and I are peas in a pod,
She knows me best of all,
She sets me straight when I'm feeling odd,
And comforts me when I fall.
She calms my every fear,
And always knows what to say.
So now it's time to shout and cheer:
Happy Mother's Day!
-- Abby Wolner

Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.
-- Author Unknown

A mother is not a person to lean on, but a person to make leaning unnecessary.
-- Dorothy Canfield Fisher

My mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it.
-- Mark Twain

Mother's love is peace. It need not be acquired, it need not be deserved.
-- Erich Fromm

Most of all the other beautiful things in life come by twos and threes by dozens and hundreds. Plenty of roses, stars, sunsets, rainbows, brothers, and sisters, aunts and cousins, but only one mother in the whole world.

-- Kate Douglas Wiggin

There is no way to be a perfect mother, and a million ways to be a good one.
-- Jill Churchill
