Verses And Poems For Your Mum

  • And may you happy live/And long us bless/Receiving as you give/Great happiness. – Christina Rosetti
  • The angels, whispering to one another/ Can find, among their burning terms of love/None so devotional as that of “Mother,” – Edgar Allen Poe
  • God made a wonderful mother/A mother who never grows old/He made her smile of the sunshine/And He molded 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. – Pat O’Reilly
  • I’ll love my mother all my days/For enriching my life in so many ways/She set me straight and then set me free/And that’s what the word “mother” means to me. – Karl Fuchs
  • A Mother’s love is something/that no one can explain/It is made of deep devotion/and of sacrifice and pain/It is endless and unselfish/and enduring come what may/For nothing can destroy it/or take that love away/It is patient and forgiving/when all others are forsaking/And it never fails or falters. – Helen Steiner Rice
