Happy Mother’s Day Fingerprint Poem From Kids

(Author unknown)

Dirt and cookie fingerprints

are not too hard to find.

You’ll see them on our walls and drawers

Where I go, they’re left behind.

But soon I’ll learn to wash my hand

And tuck them by my side.

The walls and drawers clean once more

No grubby marks to hide.

So, here I leave my fingerprints

Each and every one,

Painted as a reminder 

of dirt and cookies and fun. 


Dear Mom

(author unknown)

Dear Mom,

I will love you forever;

And forever you will be

The most wonderful mother,

You mean everything to me.

I thought of buying you flowers

In the usual way

But I knew you would prefer

A forever bouquet!
