You Are My Mother and My Friend

By Nicholas Gordon

You are my mother and my friend,

Which is unusual.

Somehow our characters must blend:

Your wisdom and my will.

I turn, and you are there for me;

I speak, you understand.

I feel cared for, but also free;

You lead but don’t command.

I’m fortunate that I was born

To someone just like you;

I love you, not just as my mom,

But for what you are and do.

Mother’s Day Poem

By Jon Bratton

If I could give you diamonds

for each tear you cried for me.

if I could give you sapphires

for each truth you’ve helped me see.

If I could give you rubies

for the heartache that you’ve known

If I could give you pearls

for the wisdom that you’ve shown.

Then you’ll have a treasure, mother,

that would mount up to the skies

That would almost match

the sparkle in your kind and loving eyes.

But I have no pearls, no diamonds,

As I’m sure you’re well aware

So I’ll give you gifts more precious

My devotion, love and care.

Happy Mother’s Day

Mother

By Phyllis McGinley

No painter’s brush, nor poet’s pen,

In justice to her fame,

Has ever reached half high enough,

To write a mother’s name.

Life is the fruit she longs to hand you,

Ripe on a plate.

And while you live,

Relentlessly she understands you.
