    Heard once about a poem sounds something like 'You make me feel so special
    like I've never felt before Please don't close this yellow fantasy door...' Is something from a song or video

    Hey, I'm looking for a poem titled 'my mother'.
    The first verse reads like this:

    'Who sat and watch my infant head
    whilst sleeping on my cradle bed
    and tears of sweet affection shed
    my mother.'

    Any assistance (poem or author) would be most appreciated.

      That is not the first verse, but one of the verses to the poem 'My Mother.' Depending on the source, it is credited to Ann Taylor or to Jane Taylor (they were sisters) .

    Hey, I thought someone could help me find some poems about war. Yes I know there are a lot of them in this site, but the problem is I need poems from wellknown poets and hopefully of thoes of old days like William Shakespeare and J. Keats. I would be glad if someone could help me.

    i forgot to add my email address so you can email the poem if you know of it, or even a link to a webpage that has it.

    Hopefully someone out there can help me!
    My nanna is in hospital with severe lung and kidney cancer and a brain tumour and doctors don't expect her to make it much more than a week or two. My mum has asked me to find a poem she once read as she'd like to read it at nanna's funeral service when it does happen. All she can remember is that the poem was called 'a message from mum' but she can't remember who wrote it. It was written through the eyes of a mother saying thank you and goodbye to her children. Someone emailed it to her as a forward message and she lost it due to accidental deletion. I have searched this site top to bottom and have not found the poem. If you think you may know the one i am talking about can you please email it to me as soon as possible. Thanks in advance.

    'deggs I said, deggs I said, what in the world are deggs I said...
    'scramble deggs said Billy'!

    'teggs I said, teggs I said, what in the world are teggs I said,
    poach teggs said Billy'....

    Hopefully someone out there will know what I am on about, as my daughter thinks I am barmy! !

    Some 20 years ago I was given a poem that was written from the perspective of a wife loosing her husband and the mother's perspective of loosing her son.
    The feelings they each had and to whom the loss was greater.

    I'm looking for either a poem or a quote, it may be by an indian poet, it roughly it goes like this:

    I've been to many countries,
    But in my country there is only one town,
    and in that town, one house,
    and in that house, one room,
    and in that room one bed,
    and in that bed one woman..and she means more to me than anything...

    That's VERY rough...but gets the point across...can anyone help me find it?

    Blessings to all,
