Oh no! You know you love her, you know what she means to you but your mind is blank. What to write in a Mother’s Day card? How to put all that love and appreciation for mum (or any wonder woman in your life) into words that go beyond ‘Happy Mother’s Day’?
Don’t worry. We’ve got a few poetic ideas for you that will help the ink, and the tears of joy, flow.
My Mother, my friend so dear,
throughout my life you’re always near.
A tender smile to guide my way,
you’re the sunshine to light my day.
I’m here in the world
alive, safe and free
But if it wasn’t for you
I know I wouldn’t be
So I wanted to tell you
you mean the world to me
You held my hand for a short while
but you'll hold my heart for ever
I am lucky to have strong, supportive women in my life.
And that’s all down to you!
Thank you for raising the amazing women that surround me.
You’re a wonderful gran, it’s true.
Sending this, Mum,
especially to say
wishing you a happy
and wonderful day...
And to tell you this day
will always be one
for remembering the many
sweet things you have done!
She said ‘you can do anything.’
She said ‘always be kind.’
She said ‘believe in yourself.’
She said ‘know your own mind.’
That person was you.
You made me who I am.
I’ll forever be grateful.
I’m your number one fan.
We are one soul.
The very best of friends.
More than mother, daughter.
My love for you has no end.
There is no blessing quite so dear
As a mum like you to love year after year!
Take inspiration from the Spice Girls and their mother-celebrating hit Mama. The lyrics may not be a match for Sylvia Plath but their simplicity can speak volumes – particularly if your own mama has dropped her Union Jack mini-dress off at the dry cleaners in readiness for the girl power gang’s reunion tour.
Mama, I love you
Mama, I care
Mama, I love you
Mama, my friend
