I think this poem shows how much this woman really thinks and feels about her mom. Her mom was a great woman and if she can be just 1/2 the woman that she was to her children then she feels she will be doing a pretty good job. I know how she feels. My mom was the best mom any girl could have asked for.

I was enthrilled to read this poem. Its a true contribution from a poet or poetess to his/her parents. My parents burst into tears and even I burst into tears when i sent them this poem. It was as if it was a true expression of my feelings or an expression of any genuine daughter or son to his or her Parents. Marvellous !

i loved this poem and it touched me dearly
Michelle
This poem gets my vote because I have been seperated from my mother after 30 years of her being so close to my life. Mom and I have been through abuse and we have seen through the other side. 2 years ago I found myself having to move to Canada to be closer to my husbands family. In order to do that I had to leave mine behind and though I miss all of my family and I miss all the babies I have never met it is my mom I miss the most, who through it all gave me the strength I needed to be the woman and mother I am today. I love her I miss her and I feel this poem touches that sentiment so greatly. Thank you
tina
Beautiful tribute to all Mom's!
Elizabeth

this is a beautiful poems. I don't quite get along with my mother since I was 13 yrs old. But Since I found out I was pregnant with my little girl, she was there with me in the hospital. I guess that shows she still care about me, I love my mother. I wish we can get along more. She hasn't spoke to me for 2 months after she foudn out- but now I'm trying to get along with her, because I need my parents to help me, and show me how to gtow my child. Um I love this poem.

Mohammad
An excellent piece of poetry. Motherhood is universal regardless of time and space. In my opinion it is the single instance of eternal compassion that touches all creations on earth. It is Love of mother that remains a home truth at the spectrum of life to mankind since inception. I do share the great passion of love for Mom of the poet. The poem is representative of Love for Mother all across the barrier of time,culture,geography and space. Thanks NIPPON

I really feel this has come from the heart. This mother and daughter has such a great relationship. It reminds me of mine 3 daughters and myself. We are all so very close and we love each other so very much. And that is what I see in this poem. I really enjoyed this poem and I think it is a great poem for a child or grown-up child to send to their mother. Thank-you for sharing your talent with all of us.
