Mother's day is celebrated in many ways. It is true that children share extra special words of love with their mother on this special day, but many husbands celebrate this day as well with their wives or children's mother.

These poems are dedicated to the man in the mothers life who wants to say Happy Mother's Day in a very special way. Sometimes the words are hard to find or you may not know how to put them all together in a letter or poem.

I love poetry from all periods of time. Here you will fnd a variety of poets expressing their love.

Enjoy the words and meanings they express and share them with the woman in your life. Share them on Mothers Day any other special occasion.

The first poem I chose reminds us that it is never to late to ask the mother of your children, the woman you love, to be yours forever.


From the very day we met
It seems I never could forget.
The wonders of your loving heart
And the feeling I get that well never part.

I think about you all the time.
And cant believe you're actually mine.
The love I have for you is real.
And as I say this I start to kneel.

I take your hand and squeeze it tight
And look into your loving eyes.
Now I have figured out
That you, are my greatest prize.

I want to say I love you
But really don't know how
The only time I've felt this way
Is right here and now.

Now the time has come at last
I hope it doesn't go by too fast
You have filled the void in my heart
And I really don't know where to start.

I guess I'll just have to come out and say
That I love you more each night and day
You're love for me is all I need
And more than I can stand

I hope that you will take my hand
As I slip on your finger, this little band
It has no beginning, and it has no end
Just like my love for you, my very best friend

Now I have to take a chance
And tell you after all this romance
I want you always by my side
And so I ask you to be my bride.

John D.


My heart is like a singing bird

Whose nest is in a watered shoot;

My heart is like an apple-tree

Whose boughs are bent with thickest fruit;

My heart is like a rainbow shell

That paddles in a halcyon sea;

My heart is gladder than all these

Because my love has come to me.

Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830-1894)


Rise up, My love, My fair one,

Arise and come away.

For lo, 'tis past the winter,

The winter of the year;

The rain is past and over,

The flowers on earth appear.

And now the time of singing

Is come for every bird;

And over all the country

The turtledove is heard.

Jackson Mason (1833-1889)


If I could catch a million stars,
I know just what I'd do,
I'd arrange them on a paper,
And sing them back to you.

If I could give you gifts of gold,
I'd have each one inscribed,
With a special memory,
That I hold, dear, inside.

I'd give you everything you'd want,
Or you could ever need,
But that would never measure,
All you've given me.

With honesty and compassion,
You lend a tender ear.
And when I look into your eyes,
My troubles disappear.

But, I am not a rich man,
Nor lucky enough to catch a star,
I can only give you one thing...
All that's in my heart.

This is something you'll never be without,
Whether you are near or far,
For it is a simple but precious gift.
My love is where you are.

Paul D. Medway

      This is my favorite all time poem for moms!

      My mom passed away almost 1 year ago and I really miss her!

      She was very..... SPECIAL

      'Special' is the word that's used to describe

      something one-of-a-kind like a hug or a sunset...

      ...or a person who spreads love with a smile or a kind gesture.

      'Special' describes people who act from their heart...

      ...and keep in mind the hearts of others.

      'Special' applies to something that is admired and precious...

      ...something which can never be replaced.

      'Special' is the word that best describes... you.

      Thank You
