Even before we are born, the moment that we are conceived as a tiny dot, there is only one feeling that we know, The warmth of our mother. The first touch that we feel when we are born is from the soft hands of our mothers. They give us a home in their hearts and we know we will live there forever.
Their love is so unconditional and enormous, it feels unworldly. Loving them doesn’t mean there will not be any ups and downs. Everyone has their own share of difficult times but they even love us then. They love us when we a mess because for them we will always be their perfect child.
Losing your mother is a devastating kind of pain. We wish we never have to go through it, but time is cruel. It snatches away things we cherish without missing a beat and when it is the time to bid farewell to the one person who loved us the most in this world, we feel like our word has stopped rotating.
You cannot do much to help a person in such pain because we can never honestly know what someone is going through. The least that you can do is let them know they are not alone. Use kind words to comfort them through these dark times. We know everyone is not so good with words and that’s okay. This is why we have compiled these comforting messages and quotes to say to someone dealing with the loss of a mother. You can use these words to voice your feelings.
Saying something is always better than not saying anything at all.

Hundreds of stars in the pretty sky,
Hundreds of shells on the shore together,
Hundreds of birds that go singing by,

Hundreds of bees in the purple clover,
Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn,
But only one mother the wide world over
Only One Mother
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 I love her and miss her,
and when she turns to smile,
place a kiss upon her cheek
and hold her for awhile.
Because remembering her is easy,
I do it every day,
but there’s an ache within my heart
that will never go away
If Roses Grow in Heaven
Dolores M. Garcia
If there are any heavens my mother will (all by herself) have one.
It will not be a pansy heaven nor
a fragile heaven of lilies-of-the-valley but
it will be a heaven of black red roses my father will be
(deep like a rose tall like a rose)
standing near my (swaying over her silent) with eyes which are really petals and see
nothing with the face of a poet really which
is a flower and not a face with hands which whisper
This is my beloved my
(suddenly in sunlight he will bow,
and the whole garden will bow)
If There are Any Heavens My Mother Will
By E. E. Cummings
I do not think of you lying in the wet clay
Of a Monaghan graveyard; I see
You walking down a lane among the poplars
On your way to the station, or happily
Going to second Mass on a summer Sunday–
You meet me and you say:
‘Don’t forget to see about the cattle–‘
Among your earthiest words the angels stray.
And I think of you walking along a headland
Of green oats in June,
So full of repose, so rich with life–
And I see us meeting at the end of a town
On a fair day by accident, after
The bargains are all made and we can walk
Together through the shops and stalls and markets
Free in the oriental streets of thought.
O you are not lying in the wet clay,
For it is harvest evening now and we
Are piling up the ricks against the moonlight
And you smile up at us — eternally.
In Memory of My Mother
By Patrick Kavanagh
I cannot say and I will not say
That she is dead, she is just away.
With a cheery smile and a wave of hand
She has wandered into an unknown land;
And left us dreaming how very fair
Its needs must be, since she lingers there.
And you-oh you, who the wildest yearn
From the old-time step and the glad return-
Think of her faring on, as dear
In the love of there, as the love of here
Think of her still the same way, I say;
She is not dead, she is just away.
By James Whitcomb Riley
Somewhere in my heart beneath all my grief and pain,
Is a smile I still wear at the sound of your dear name.
The precious word is ‘MOTHER’, she was my world you see,
But now my heart is breaking cause she’s no longer here with me.
God chose her for His angel to watch me from above,
To guide me and advise me and know that I’m still loved.
The day she had to leave me when her life on earth was through,
God had better plans for her, for this, I surely knew.
When I think of her kind heart and all those loving years,
My memories surround me and I can’t hold back the tears.
She truly was my best friend, someone I could confide in,
She always had a tender touch and a warm and gentle grin.
I want to thank you Mother for teaching me so well,
And though the time has come that I must bid you this farewell.
I’ll remember all you’ve taught me and make you proud you’ll see.
Thank you my Dear Mother for all the love you showed me.
Although you’ve left this earth and now you’ve taken flight,
I know that you are here with me each morning, noon and night.
Farewell Dear Mother
