    Nice twist with a late mother rather than lost lover! Deep emotions in there! Nicely done

    Reading the poem half way I thought this could very well be for a mother. As it turned out it was. A beautiful heartwarming tribute to a mother. Thanks for sharing.

    Dear Deva, this is a very beautiful piece of creation from your pen, a lovely tribute to your mother but the same poem which also can refer to anyone we deeply love. Keep on posting. Very delightful read.

    Dear Deva De Silva, The very fact that your mind and heart are full with the memories of your beloved mother is evidenced in your beautiful and intense poem. May she continue to inspire you into a noble and memorable life. Would you please clarify what you mean by 'Speak red, ' which I couldn't understand? Love.

  • Sandra Fowler (4/22/2009 7:07:00 AM)

    You have given your mother a superb poem gift. Your tribute is extraordinary.
    It is deserving of all those comments and more...

    Love,

    Sandra
