You don’t need a writing degree to tell your mother-in-law how important she is to your family. A mother-in-law is the woman who raised and supported the person you love today. Whether it’s her birthday, a special holiday or a moment worth noting, writing a personalized poem is a sweet and simple gesture that shows how much you appreciate and adore her.
- Share how much you adore her
Some possible sentences to use in the opening include:You mean the world to me
So many things I would like to say
You’re the best mother-in-law I know
- List keywords that rhyme
Compose a list of words that rhyme with your first sentence. For example, the word me rhymes with be, free, see and tree; the word say rhymes with away, day, today; the word know rhymes with go, glow and show. Write a sentence that captures what you are feeling. For example:
So many things I would like to say,
About how much I love you today.
- Write the remainder of the poem
Continue to use the list of words you have developed. For example:
No matter where I go,
You are the best mother-in-law I know.
You mean the world to me,
That, I hope you can see.
- Deliver your message
Write or type your completed poem on paper or a blank greeting card and deliver your special message to your mother-in-law.
