Poems About Mothers-in-law

Through some heartfelt and loving verses, let your mother-in-law know what you think about her and how much you love her.

1. To My Mother-in-law

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,”

Therefore by that dear name, I long have called you –
You who are more than mother unto me,

And fill my heart of hearts, where Death installed you,
In setting my Virginia’s spirit free.

My mother – my own mother, who died early,
Was but the mother of myself; but you

Are mother to the one I loved so dearly,
And thus are dearer than the mother I knew

by that infinity with which my wife
Was dearer to my soul than its soul-life.

– Edgar Allan Poe

2. A Second Mom

You are a second mother, you know
At times I get busy and may not show
How much I care for all you do
You are special; that’s so true.

I feel so blessed to have you around
A strong bond with you I have found
So on this day, I send my love
And count you as a blessing from above.
– Catherine Pulsifer

3. Loving Mother-in-law

No woman apart from me
Knows the meaning
Of a mother-in-law
Whose love is undying
No one except me
Understands what it means
To be loved by a mother-in-law
It’s always more than what it seems
A safe and valid conclusion
No one except me can draw
That you are the world’s best
Mother-in-law

You are the mother I received the day I wed your son.
And I just want to thank you, Mom, for the things that you have done.
You have given me a gracious man with whom I share my life.
You are his lovely mother, and I am his lucky wife.
You used to pat his little head, and now I hold his hand.
You raised a little boy, then gave me a man.
– Wendy Johnson

5. I Learned From You

I learned about love from you,
Watching your caring ways.
I learned about joy from you.
In fun-filled yesterdays.
From you, I learned forgiving.
Of faults, both big and small.
I learned what I know about living
From you, as you gave life your all.

The example you set is still with me
I’d never want any other.
I’m thankful for all that you taught me,
And I’m blessed to call you “Mother.”
– Joanna Fuchs

6. My Mom AndMine Is

My mom and mine is
My husband’s mom is mine too
There is a special bond without any clue
Don’t know when I came so close to you
Don’t know how it all started and true
Today I have in you my best friend
The purity from my heart and no present
Coz no one is as wonderful as you are
Whether you stay near or you stay far
You will always remain in my heart
My most amazing mom-in-law!
God bless you!

No words can describe the respect I have for you
You have always been there to help me
In all my troubles and through
I was scared when I was married to your son
But over the years that I have known you
I have respected you more
Its all about the loving grace in your eyes
And your wish being so wise
I love you, you are a mom to me
With you there is all glee
Stay blessed!

Today I want you to know
For you, I really care.

9. Mother-in-law

Mother-in-law,” they say, and yet.
Somehow I simply can’t forget
“Twas you who watched his baby ways,
Who taught him his first hymn of praise,
Who smiled on him with loving pride,
When he first toddled by your side.

“Mother-in-law,” but oh, ’twas you
Who taught him to be kind and true;
When he was tired, almost asleep,
‘Twas to your arms he used to creep.
And when he bruised his tiny knee,
‘Twas you who kissed it tenderly.

“Mother’-in-law,” they say, and yet
Somehow I never shall forget
How much I owe
To you, who taught him how to grow.

You trained your son to look above,
You made him the man I love.
And so I think of that today
When with thankful heart I’ll say,
“Our Mother.”

Mother-in-law Poems From Son-in-Law

Through some poems here, a son-in-law tells how much he appreciates his mother-in-law for raising her daughter well and how grateful he is for that.

10. Dear Mother-in-Law

To the mother of my wife
I have some things to say
So many things to thank you for
Lord, help me find a way

I see your love in my wife’s eyes
The way you held her close
Of all the people in your life
She knows you loved her most!

Your love spills out with every breath
With every sigh and laugh
When she tells of you and dad
in some hilarious gaff

And when she looks at me.
With soft and tender eyes
I know it’s ’cause her heart was filled.
With love from someone wise

From her youth, she heard the words
That strengthened her young soul
And now those words pour forth from her
Like water from a bowl

She builds the words, thoughts, and deeds
She learned from you, her Mom
Into her own blessed children
like a precious healing balm

She weaves a strong yet tender wall
Of Love around us all
So all her children are kept safe
From every slip and fall

Every day I see your love
In what she says and does
And I say a prayer to God each day
For your heart, your prayers, and your loves
– Michael Weber

That has made me so connected to you
My super mom in law
Know for sure that I simply love you!
And you are simply the best in life!

NO one can compare, not one of the rest.

Your son you shared with me, it means that you care.

a Mother-in-law so precious and kind.
So my dearest mother-in-law I just wanted you to know,
I’ll always appreciate you and love you so!

22. A Mother-in-law

When I got married, I didn’t think
A Mom, I would also gain
But now I see that smile and wink
I could never complain.

You are loving, kind, and supportive of
The many things we do.
All we do and all we love
You are included too.

By marriage, you become my Mom.
I am grateful for that day.
We could all use another Mom.
I wouldn’t have it any other way.
– Catherine Pulsifer

You are truly my second mother, you know
I may not tell you, or I may not show
With time, my bond is getting strong
With time, my trust is getting so deep

So I am so getting the reap
The fruits of my deeds by having you
Yes, you are truly one in few
The best mom in law anyone can have
You are the best in every way
I love you, dear mother-in-law
Stay blessed!

24. Star Mother-In-Law

Some mother-in-laws are possessive;
Their child they still want to own.
My mother-in-law’s love is like sunlight;
On both of us it shone.

Some mother-in-laws put you down;
They think you’re not good enough.
My mother-in-law shows approval,
Affection, and other good stuff.

Some mother-in-laws interfere;
They think that they know best.
My mother-in-law lets us be;
She’s better than the rest.

And so I just want to thank you
For being who you are;
You’ve made everything so easy;
As a mother-in-law, you’re a star!
– Joanna Fuchs

25. Mother-in-laws Are Said To Be

Mother-in-laws are said to be
Nasty, mean, and interfering
Some say they even so contrary
All that was said was truly overwhelming.

But you, my dear, are not like that
You are special and thoughtful too
Easy to sit and have a chat
We love you and thank you for all you do.
– Catherine Pulsifer

Sometimes, we may not find appropriate words to say our feelings out loud. One of the greatest ways to express your emotions to a loved one is by penning down a few lines.

Share a few verses with her and see how happy and special she feels.
