Poems for a Niece From an Aunt

An aunt and niece relationship can feel a lot like a mother-daughter relationship. However, aunts often enjoy some relationship benefits grandparents get, like not having to be strict or dole out consequences. Tell your niece how much you treasure the friendship you've created with these loving verses.

My Niece, My Friend

By Michele Meleen

When a woman has a daughter,
she becomes a mom.
But, when she becomes an aunt,
there's a friendship type of bond.

I don't have to tell you what to do,
or how to comb your hair.
I just get to joke and laugh
whenever you are there.

If life treats you unfairly,
or you're at your wit's end,
I will be the voice of reason for
my niece, my friend.

I Will

By Michele Meleen

I did not choose to be your aunt,
you were a gift for me from God.
I will guide you
like a grandmother.
I will love you
like a mom.
I will laugh with you
like a sister.
I will care for you
if ever they were all gone.

Aunts Can

By Michele Meleen

Who can pick you up when you are down
and turn your lips to a smile from a frown?
Who can give you sage advice
and give you cause to think twice?
It's all part of the family plan,
because aunts can.

Who plays tricks and jokes on you
and laughs when you pull them too?
Who takes you out to have a ball
and shops with you at the mall?
It's all part of the family plan,
because aunts can.

Grandmas are nice, and grandpas too,
But, no one gives a niece
what aunts do!

One Proud Aunt

By Michele Meleen

No matter what or who you become
I'll always be one proud aunt
because you are my niece
and we don't use the word "can't."

Poems For a Niece From an Uncle

Some uncles serve as the only strong male influence in a girl's life. Others get to be that fun, cool guy their niece can turn to when she feels no one else will understand. Share your loving sentiments with the amazing niece in your life to help keep her confidence up and give her something to smile about.

The Next Best Thing

By Michele Meleen

There is no greater gift,
for an uncle like me,
who has no daughters
to love dearly,
than the next best thing,
that unique missing piece,
who fills my heart with joy,
it can only be my niece.

Nieces Are Nice

By Michele Meleen

Nice, kind, good and fair
Idealistic, optimistic visionary
Effervescent, bubbly, joyful
Charming, sweet, and delightful
Everything my niece can be.

The Girl Who Stole My Heart

By Michele Meleen

Who knew there could be
a girl not my own, a niece
who stole my whole heart

What a Niece Means to Me

By Michele Meleen

When you're an uncle,
no one ask questions like
"What does a niece
mean to you?"

But I've thought about it
long and hard anyway
and to me, a niece means
one more drop of family glue.

You help hold our family together
filling the generation gap.
You give me one more person to love
in more ways than I ever knew.

Poems From Any Aunt or Uncle

Poems that could be from any real aunt or uncle or any person you call "Aunt" or "Uncle" celebrate special occasions like birthdays. Inspirational poems for a niece might help her through a tough time or a poem for a niece who passed away could help the family heal. Whatever the subject, special poems from aunts and uncles have a place in every niece's heart.

To My Special Niece

By Michele Meleen

"Special" is a word
reserved for the best,
and my dear
you have won my award
for Niece of the Year!

For My Niece's Birthday

By Michele Meleen

For my niece
on your birthday,
I want to say to you
that the greatest gift
I ever got
was your parents introducing you.

As you blow out your candles
and eat your cake,
I hope you'll remember
life is full of gifts we make.

Proud of My Niece

By Michele Meleen

I'm proud of my niece
for so many reasons
I couldn't possibly list them all
But here are a few big and small:

She's a great person
with a great smile
who chooses me over Mom and Dad
once in a while.

She's determined and strong
with a witty sense of humor
who keeps me on my toes
never knowing what's in store.

I'm proud of my niece
for so many reasons
but the biggest one I see
is how much she loves me.

For My Niece in Heaven

By Michele Meleen

For my niece in heaven
I hope you find it true
that all the angels in the clouds
are now your aunts and uncles too.

The Importance of Family

Close-knit families enjoy an eclectic and vast support system beyond their own parents and children. Give your niece the gift of a huge, loving network when you share your special bond using sentimental poems.
