1. Godparents by Unknown Author
When God created me He knew it’d be true
that I’d have a lot of growing and learning to do.
I must stumble, before I can walk.
I must babble, before I can talk.
And just like I’ll learn to dance and sing songs,
I’ll have to learn my rights from my wrongs.
The role as my teacher is what God meant for you.
Will you hold my hand through all the learning I do?
Encourage me to be fair and always do my part.
Show me how to keep compassion and love in my heart.
Teach me to be patient and work ’til I’m through.
Be an example, so I can grow just like you.
So take my hand and show me the way.
Our journey starts on my Baptism Day.
2. A Godmother just like you by Unknown Author
I just want to let you know
You mean the world to me
Only a heart as dear as yours
Would give so unselfishly.
The many things you’ve done
All the times that you were there
Help me know deep down inside
How much you really care
Even though I might not say
I appreciate all you do
Richly blessed is how I feel
Having a Godmother just like you
3. A Godmother’s Love by Amy Elizabeth Zielke
What joy you give my heart
Your sweet smile brightens my day
From the moment you came into this world
I knew our bond would be special
We are connected by family
Bonded forever through unending love
We are separated by many miles
But I hold you in my heart every day
I am so blessed to be your Godmother
You are always in my prayers
I will thank God for you through eternity
How I love you Jordan Marie!
4. A Godparent’s Promise by Unknown Author
Precious little Godchild.
You are surely heaven sent.
Becoming your Godparent
is a sacred compliment.
Although you’re but an infant,
I promise from this day
to be your friend and mentor
as you walk along life’s way.
I promise your dear parents
and God who dwells above;
Until the day I pass away
you’ll feel and know my love.
I accept this holy honor,
that’s bestowed on me anew,
and commit sweet child, to be
a worthy Godparent to you.
5. My God Daughter by Rebecca L. Martell
The day I was asked
if I would feel blessed
to accept responsibility
of a lifetime request.
My heart was overwhelmed
with a loving sensation,
and I accepted this query
Of loving you unconditionally
and helping guide you through life,
to show you the direction
of spiritual light.
To be your strength in hard times
and stand proud when you subdue
the obstacles that life
decides to throw you.
And to you, my angel,
I promise this.
Because without you,
as your godmother,
I couldn’t exist.
As you can see, the role of godparents is a special one that carries with it great responsibility. They are entrusted with raising a child in faith and helping them grow into adulthood. Selecting godparents is an important task, and we hope this poem has helped you think about the qualities you want in yours. If you are looking for someone to fill this special role in your child’s life, consider asking a friend or family member. And if you are lucky enough to be chosen as a godparent, know that you have been given a great honor and responsibility. Congratulations!
