    The last lines show all the simple yet complicated strands of family transmission. Very nicely put indeed. Thanks for it. Hope your mother saw this poem. (Report) Reply

    Many people, including myself, don't give enough thought to our mothers... we don't realize all that they have done for us... This is a wonderful writing, and it's actually quite funny because I have been thinking a lot about the people that influence and care for us the most- family. I really enjoyed reading this one.

    Simply beautiful - a most thoughtful and heartfelt tribute from a son to his mother - real lump in throat stuff here...words any mother would cherish. jxx (Report) Reply

    As wide as the ocean
    As deep as the sea,
    As high as the heavens
    is her love for her child..................a fine tribute to the soul whose love and care is responsible for our existence....,
    She plays her part well and now is the responsibility of the children to show their gratitude...and you do it so well....
    the poem also reflects your personality...a kind, gentle and truly humane. liked the sentiment of the words too much...

    Stunning mark of respect from clearly someone who appreciates the love and guidance shared by a parent in order to keep us boisterous lot on track.

    Great piece, definitely one for a mothers day card....10/10


    Stay strong my friend

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
