    You filled my life with joy
    on that hot sticky summer day.

    Daddy had hoped the old car
    would live to bring
    us to the hospital and back-it did just that-
    but soon after was buried in the car grave yard.so beautiful, lovely and heart touching poem.... i simply loved it....10

    The 'big check' was the love given and still being given.

    a wonderful description! ! ! I loved so much the stanza of separation! ! !
    We were separated and you became “you”...

    Bravo this maternal poem deserves 10!

    Almedia, I love how each child is so different and so special. The love cheque to deposit and to share your rainbow such artistic and clever comments. I have read 'to find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, at first we need to feel the rain'. The colors in the last stanza are wonderful.
