Poems for Parents - Inspiring Samples and Tips for Writing Your Own Poetry for Dad and Mom

Are you looking for some inspired and touching poems for parents? Or perhaps you wish to write your own poetry.

Poetry is making a comeback. Many people are finding poetry as a great way to express their feelings for their loved ones. Children especially like to write poems for their parents to express how much they mean to them.

Here are some poems for parents that you can consider when trying to find the right words to tell your parents you love them. These pieces of poetry are our original compositions.

Also discussed are some tips and ideas to help you with writing your own pieces of poetry for dad and mom.

A great way to write a wonderful poem for your parents is to take a sheet of paper and write the individual's name on the left side (one letter per line) so that the name reads downward. Next, start each sentence with the letter at the beginning of each line. You can also do this with the words "mother" and "father." For example:

Many times I have thought
Of all you have done for me
Through all the years
Happiness is just within reach
Every time I see your smiling face and your arms
Reaching for me.

For a poem for your father, you could do something like this:

Fathers are friends that never go
And rocks for us to lean on
Through good times and bad
Hope remains
Each time I
Remember I have you as my father.

Remember when writing your poems for parents - make them as personal as you can. You are telling them deep feelings and expressing deep emotions, so you want that to come through in your poem. Consider this poem for example:

When I think back to growing up
I never realized that an angel
Was always looking out for me
Through thick and thin
In times when I was rebellious
Or gave you trouble
You were always there
Ready to catch me when I would fall.

You want to convey as much meaning in your poems for parents as possible. When writing poems for parents, you also want to acknowledge just how much they have done for you. Parenting is a tough job, so you want your parents to know that you recognize that and appreciate it. For example:

For all the times that I was mean
Or rebellious or downright ugly
You never stopped loving me
You never gave less than 100 percent
And you never showed your hurt
Or pain
You always made me feel
The love that only a parent
Can give a child
You made me the person I am today
And I pray
That someday
I am half the parent
You were to me.

Most people only write poems for parents at anniversaries or Mother's or Father's Day; however, a poem for mom and dad is a wonderful way to acknowledge a great accomplishment in a parent's life. For example, if your parent is retiring, you may want to write a poem talking about all their hard work and sacrifice, such as:

Each day
I watched you
Wake up before sunrise
And put on your suit
You'd pick up things
And head out the door
With a kiss and a smile

Each day
I watched you
Come home in the evening
And sit down to dinner
With the family around
And you never showed
How tired you were
Or irritated
You always
And asked me
"How was YOUR day?"
And I never
Felt more special
Than I did when I was
With you.

Poems for parents are a great way to show them how you feel and how much they mean to you. When you are writing your poem for your parent, make sure you include all the wonderful feelings you have for dad and mom. Happy writing!
