A mother is special, she’s more than a friend.
Whenever you need her, she’ll give you a hand.
She’ll lead you and guide you in all that you do.
Try all that she can just to see you get through.
Good times and bad times, she’s there for it all.
Say head up, be proud, and always stand tall.
She’ll love you through quarrels and even big fights,
or heart to heart chats on cold lonely nights.
My mother’s the greatest that I’ve ever known,
I think God made my mother like He’d make his own.
A praiser, a helper, an encourager too,
nothing in this world that she wouldn’t do.
To help us succeed she does all that she can,
raised a young boy now into a man.
I want to say thank you for all that you do,
please always know mom, that I love you.

By Edgar Allan Poe
Because I feel that, in the Heavens above,
The angels, whispering to one another,
Can find, among their burning terms of love,
None so devotional as that of “Mother”
By Erin Belieu
How to describe
that world that mothers spin
and consume and trap
and love us in, that spreads
for years and men and miles?
Those particular hands that could
smooth anything: butter on bread,
cool sheets or weather. It’s
the wonder of them, good or bad,
those mother-hands that pet
and shape and slap,
that sew you together
the pieces of a better house
or life in which you’ll try
