Though the best types of poems are the poems that are written from the heart and are personally constructed, some people do find it hard to express themselves in poem form. So if you find that you are not the next Wordsworth or Keats, you can find examples of Mother/ Daughter poems from such websites as and

The relationship between mother and daughter is one of the most integral and important relationships there are. A mother provides not only the care and nurture of the child when they are young, but as the child grows up into womanhood, the mother provides the example or guidance through which the daughter generally follows.  Additionally, most women find that as they grow up their mother becomes their closest friend and confidant.

There have been many poems in history that have been constructed to pay tribute to the strength and bond of the mother/ daughter relationship,  below is an example of one:

Poems From Daughter To Mother

We're daughter and mother
Not so long ago.
We give and take
And take and give
Along times endless row.
Love is passed
And love received
To be passed on again:
A precious heirloom
Twice, twice blessed,
A spiritual cardigan.

I'll put it on
And treasure it,
The me I have received,
And when the roles
Reverse again,
I'll have what I most need.

So may our love
Go on and on,
A hundred thousand years;
Mothers and daughters,
Daughters and mothers,
Through joys and other tears.

If you would like to construct your own version of a mother/ daughter poem to play tribute to this special and nurturing bond,  you can start by listing what you think a mother or a daughter is relating it to your own mother or daughter. This will help to give you ideas on the content of your poem. After you have listed these ideas you can then begin to construct your poem. If this is your first attempt at writing a poem, feel free to keep the rhyme scheme simple, but alternatively poem do not have to rhyme, so don’t feel restricted by a particular rhyme pattern, feel free to be creative and simply let the words flow onto the page.
