Best poems for Mother’s Day

Rock Me to Sleep – Elizabeth Akers Allen

The beautiful poem is dedicated to the bond between mum and child, which is still in full force in adulthood.

The final verse reads:

Mother, dear mother, the years have been long

Since I last listened your lullaby song:

Sing, then, and unto my soul it shall seem

Womanhood’s years have been only a dream.

Clasped to your heart in a loving embrace,

With your light lashes just sweeping my face,

Never hereafter to wake or to weep;—

Rock me to sleep, mother, – rock me to sleep!

A Mother’s Day Prayer For You – Anon

I said a Mother’s Day prayer for you

to thank the Lord above

for blessing me with a lifetime

of your tenderhearted love.

I thanked God for the caring

you’ve shown me through the years,

for the closeness we’ve enjoyed

in time of laughter and of tears.

And so, I thank you from the heart

for all you’ve done for me

and I bless the Lord for giving me

the best mother there could be!

Wonderful Mother – Pat O’Reilly

God made a wonderful mother,

A mother who never grows old;

He made her smile of the sunshine,

And He moulded her heart of pure gold;

In her eyes He placed bright shining stars,

In her cheeks fair roses you see;

God made a wonderful mother,

And He gave that dear mother to me.

Funny poems for Mother’s Day

This Be The Verse – Philip Larkin

If your mum’s got a sense of humour – she may enjoy this rather negative portrayal of parenthood.

But make sure she knows you’re joking if you don’t want to offend her on the big day!

They f*** you up, your mum and dad.

    They may not mean to, but they do.

They fill you with the faults they had

    And add some extra, just for you.

But they were f***ed up in their turn

    By fools in old-style hats and coats,

Who half the time were soppy-stern

    And half at one another’s throats.

Man hands on misery to man.

    It deepens like a coastal shelf.

Get out as early as you can,

    And don’t have any kids yourself.

A cheap Mother’s Day gift – Unknown

Mum, I know I owe you the world
And you deserve no less
But circumstances have unfurled;
I’m in a financial mess.
For Your Mother’s Day party
I write for you this ditty.
My poetry skills are hearty
And cheap, but oh so witty!

Mother’s Day threat – Unknown

Mum you know the worst of me, My weaknesses and follies,

I know you’ve seen me poop my pants and cut the heads off dollies,

You know all my most embarrassing moments, You know that I’m a nut,

So what can I do to repay your love… and make sure you keep your mouth shut!?
