Happy birthday, Mom!
I hope everyone can see,
What a great mom you’ve always been,
And how much you mean to me.

In times both good and bad,
For the things you taught are with me,
In happy times and sad.

Just like you pass around.
May all your good times multiply,
And happiness abound.

Happiness and health,
Internal wealth.

Mom, your birthday means so much to me;
To have you in my life another year,
The time I spent enfolded in your love,
Each day, each moment with you is so dear.

I cherish the very special bond we have.
You lift my spirit in so many ways.
I celebrate your life; I honor you,
And send to you my love and care and praise.

—Joanna Fuchs

5. Because Of You I Am Me

Mom, on your birthday, I celebrate you
And all the wonderful things that you do.

But if truth be told, and that must always be,
I’m going to talk about Marvelous Me!

Because Marvelous Me did not just come about,
For you were my making; in that is no doubt.

Your STRENGTH gave me power to reach for new heights.
Your WORDS gave me knowledge to learn wrong from right.

Your PATIENCE gave me calm to face a new day.
Your ADVICE would show me there is always a way.

Your CAPABILITY showed me to strive for my best.
Your SELFLESSNESS was given with all of your zest.

You MOLDED and LED me with SUPPORT through it all,
Even LIFTED me up when I’d happen to fall.

So lo and behold, here I am today
Because of your love and guiding way.

Marvelous Me will continue to grow,
Only because of you, this I know.

So I celebrate you now, in this special way,
To wish you a very Happy Birthday.

For I wouldn’t be me if it weren’t you from the start.
I love you, Mom, from the depths of my heart.

—Susan M. Gilbert

6. I Love You Mom

You brighten up my life
With tender love and care.
When I reach out,
You’re always there.
You’re someone I can count on
When I need a helping hand.
You’re warm and loving;
You always understand.

I’m so thankful to have
A mom like you.
There is no other
Who could fill your shoes.
I always took for granted
That you were there for me
And all the things you did,
But now I see.

You’re such a good example
Of what a mom should be.
We always get along so well,
Even when we disagree.

You’re so patient
And understanding.
You don’t ask for anything.
You’re outstanding.

You’re so quick to give
And such a joy to be around.
You’re such a good person.
You deserve a special crown.

You have a good heart.
You’re honest and true.
You’re the best mother,
And I really love you.


7. A Prayer For A Mother’s Birthday

Lord Jesus, Thou hast known
A mother’s love and tender care:
And Thou wilt hear, while for my own
Mother most dear I make this birthday prayer.

Protect her life, I pray,
Who gave the gift of life to me;
And may she know, from day to day,
The deepening glow of Life that comes from Thee.

As once upon her breast
Fearless and well content I lay,
So let her heart, on Thee at rest,
Feel fears depart and troubles fade away.

Her every wish fulfill;
And even if Thou must refuse
In anything, let Thy wise will
A comfort bring such as kind mothers use.

Ah, hold her by the hand,
As once her hand held mine;
And though she may not understand
Life’s winding way, lead her in peace divine.

I cannot pay my debt
For all the love that she has given;
But Thou, love’s Lord, wilt not forget
Her due reward,–bless her in earth and heaven.

—Henry Van Dyke

Whatever may come,
those gorgeous flowers
sing ‘Happy Birthday, Mum’!

—Shelagh E Osborn Wright

12. Happy Birthday Mom

I really love my mother,
And it surely makes me proud,
To know I’m one of her kids,
And to sing her praises loud.

My mother has a birthday,
once every year.
And on that day she’ll ponder life,
And even shed a tear.

See, Mom doesn’t like her birthdays;
She says they make her old,
But she’s as sharp as she ever was,
If the truth be told.

My mother showed me lots of things,
About the world, you see,
So then I could teach my kids,
The things my mom taught me.

My Mother has a Pure heart
That’s made of gold
I love my mother very much
In my book she will never be old.

My mom is a sweetie
She is beautiful, which is true
I Thank god for you, mom
Where would I be without you?

Happy Birthday Mom!

—Kristen M Saccardi

13. A Mother Is So Many Things

First, she lets you grow within
when the miracle takes place –
That is where all life begins
In a warm and loving space.

Then she is you nurturer
your life is in her hands –
24 hours a day, she gives
that’s what, this job demands.

Then she is your nurse
cleaner and your cook –
She takes care of everything
without a guide book.

A Mother means so much more
than words could ever say –
She is everything we love
and means the world each day.

Thank You, Mom
Happy Birthday

—Toni Norton Kane

14. Don’t Forget

Your birthday is the day I remember
all the wonderful things you do.
Time will fly; each day goes by,
and I’ve forgotten to say, “Thank you.”

Thank you for teaching me strength,
to have confidence while I grow,
for helping me through my biggest challenges,
and for teaching me what I know.

Although our paths may be distant,
and we spend so much time apart,
remember you are the one
who made the essence of my heart.

I will love you until my last breath,
this I know for sure,
as you are the first love I ever had,
and so I will love you forever more.

—Vicki Fearnley

15. Happy Birthday, Mom!

Happy birthday, Mom!
May every second, minute
hour, day and year of your life
be filled with the kind of
comfort, security, and happiness
you give unfailingly to me.
Happy Birthday, Mom!
Without you, there would be
a gaping hole in my life, an emptiness
that only your love can fill.
Thank you, Mom, for all that you do,
for the extraordinary person you are.
Happy Birthday, Mom!

—Joanna Fuchs

16. Happy Birthday To The Queen Of Our Hearts

Poems are written every day for moms across the earth.
Stories, songs, and ballads, all trying to tell her worth,

How every day she battled, the odds against her stacked,
Never giving up on us and never looking back.

There was no time for wishing or waiting for a dream.
Faces to wash, meals to cook, clothes that needed cleaned.

She never feels that she’s been cheated of a life to call her own.
Smiles that come from beneath her feet is where her heart is drawn

Sometimes we saw a worried look or heard a desperate prayer,
But she never burdened her little ones with even a hint of care.

Our table was full, our beds were warm, clothes upon our back.
We always had just what we needed; we never knew a lack.

The outside world might raise a brow and doubt that we’d survive,
But mom was sure of her love for us, and that love kept us alive.

She could’ve chosen a different path, the road to please herself.
Instead she took the high road, and her kids became her wealth.

Investing in us every day, she seemed so brave and strong,
But only God knew the tears she cried when she was all alone.

He heard her every prayer and watched as time went by.
He traded her ashes for beauty and lifted her head up high.

It’s no wonder that we love her so unlike any other.
Happy Birthday to the queen of our hearts, our dear, precious Mother.

—Fran Peck

17. Thank you Mom

For nine months, I was just a part of you,
Little by little, I grew inside of you.
The morning sickness you didn’t really mind,
Cause from day one you are already kind.

When my life is dark, you serve as my light,
When I am sad, you always hug me tight.
When I was inside of you, in me, you already believe,
You sacrifice a lot just to let me live.

I hope when it’s my turn to become a mom,
I can achieve at least half of what you’ve done,
Cause you did not just give me a life,
You also taught me to fight my own strife.

Today’s my birthday, but it should be your day,
Cause you’re the reason why I am here today,
So in this very special day of mine,
I wanna say Thank You to you, my Mom.

—Mayie Cachero

18. I Must Be Lucky

How lucky am I
To have you by my side
Your love shines through
In all that you do
So much you have said
So much I have heard
So much you have taught
So much I have learned
I know that we have had ups and downs
And sometimes even a little frown
You have always been there, so I will say
I love you, and have a wonderful special day

—Valerie Radcliffe

20. The Most Special Day

Mom, your birthday is
the most special day of the year,
because without you I wouldn’t have
the all encompassing comfort
of a mother’s unconditional love
your love, for me.
You are always there for me, Mom.
Whenever I need you,
to cheer me up, make me smile,
bolster my confidence,
or sympathize with me and ease my worries,

with your boundless affection.
Your loving presence in my life

Age is a quality of mind:
If you have left your dreams behind,
If hope is lost,
If you no longer look ahead,

And if in life you keep the jest,
If love you hold,
No matter how the years go by,
No matter how the birthdays fly,
You are not old.
