Funeral Poems For Mothers: Remembering Mom

When planning a mother’s funeral, it can often be difficult to find the right words to say to honor her memory. As such an important person or loved one in your life, how do you put into words the impact she had on your whole life and the lasting imprint that she will have on your memories? Between funeral prayer cards and funeral programs, as well as the readings during a funeral service, there are a lot of different times to share something special about your dear mother—especially if you’re giving the eulogy for your mom, too. Sometimes, getting inspiration from short poems for mom, mom in heaven poems, or a beautiful poem about the death of a mother can help get your creative thought processes flowing. Let us help guide your words in this difficult time.

Memorial poems are a beautiful way to remember your mom, who was perhaps also your best friend. They speak to her love, her dedication, her strength, and the beauty of her soul. They can help us to say “I love you“ and goodbye, but also never forget her memory. Inspirational and uplifting poems about a mother’s death can help provide the right words to express your feelings of mourning and remembrance or even celebration of life.

Maybe you’re thinking of writing your own poem for your mom as part of the funeral readings. Maybe you’re looking to pull from other sources. If you need a little assistance in finding the right funeral poem for your mother, look no further. Here are some profound and somber examples of the best funeral poems that will keep your mom’s memory alive and always with you.

Keeping Mom Close with Memorial Ornaments

In addition to the comforting words of funeral poems, there's another way to cherish your mother's memory—through memorial ornaments. These special pieces serve as a constant reminder of the love and connection you shared. Whether it's an ornament adorned with her name, a heartfelt message, a cherished photo, or a combination of all these elements, memorial ornaments can provide solace during difficult times.


Mother In Heaven Poem

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 everyday,
But there’s an ache within my heart
That will never go away.

We Had a Wonderful Mother

We had a wonderful mother,
One who never really grew old;
Her smile was made of sunshine,
And her heart was solid gold;
Her eyes were as bright as shining stars,
And in her cheeks fair roses you see.
We had a wonderful mother,
And that’s the way it will always be.
But take heed, because
She’s still keeping an eye on all of us,
So let’s make sure
She will like what she sees.

I Miss You Mom Poem

I thought of you with love today,
But that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday,
And days before that too.
I think of you in silence,
I often speak your name.
All I have are memories,
And your picture in a frame.
Your memory is my keepsake,
With which I’ll never part.
God has you in his keeping,
I have you in my heart.

A Mother’s Love Poem

Of all the special joys in life,
The big ones and the small,
A mother’s love and tenderness
Is the greatest of them all.

Dearest Mum

Memories unfold as we think of you,
A real mum, through and through.
You suffered in silence everyday,
An illness that would not go away.
But now you have no more pain
For God’s loving arms have healed you again.

An Angel

An angel lived among us,
A gift from God above.
She showered us with kindness
And shared with us her love.
She cherished every moment
With the man who was her life;
Walking hand in hand together,
Facing life with all its strife.
She loved her children dearly,
Each one a different way,
Nestled close within her heart.
Though, now, she’s far away.
She’s gone to live with Jesus.
But, she’s here with us today,
Smiling down on every one of us,
And telling us she’s okay.
