For a mother who loved nature

If your mum appreciated nature, then you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to finding a suitable poem to commemorate her.

This poem by Dolores M. Garcia captures the beauty of roses and the eternal love felt for a mother.

If Roses Grow In Heaven

If roses grow in Heaven, Lord,
Please pick a bunch for me.
Place them in my Mother’s arms
And tell her they’re from me.
Tell her that I love and miss her,
And when she turns to smile,
Place a kiss upon her cheek,
And hold her for a while.
Because remembering her is easy,
I do it every day,
But there’s an ache within my heart
That will never go away.

A poem to celebrate a mother’s life

Focusing on your mother’s many positive qualities can help you to celebrate her life and achievements.

A Wonderful Mother by Pat O’Reilly encapsulates this with simple yet heartfelt words:

A Wonderful Mother

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.

For your unique mother

Every mother is one of a kind, and nothing captures this better than this poem by George Cooper.

Only One Mother

Hundreds of stars in the pretty sky,
Hundreds of shells on the shore together,
Hundreds of birds that go singing by,
Hundreds of lambs in the sunny weather.

Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn,
Hundreds of bees in the purple clover,
Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn,
But only one mother the wide world over.
