Lee this a beautiful poem that displays a mother's love and the sadness of realising through a sad song. Wonderfully written from the heart. Top marks and thanks for sharing it my friend. David

I don't believe any us truly appreciate our mother's love (beyond the ego-driven possessive need of it) until we have our own children. Then something changes - and we can shove her off the pedestal and let her deep inside our heart. A loving, honest piece that many readers will relate to and shed a tear for. love, Allie xxxx

there's never enough time to spend with those closest to us, and afterward there are always those things we never got around to saying. The music in your mother's heart are echoed through your fond remembrances of her. We may never understand all the pain and sorrow in our parents' hearts, but luckily (?) we'll all have plenty of our own to sing about. nice tribute

As a poet, you have the unique ability of translating into words (with brevity and power) the feelings that have laid dormant for years in the heart of your readers. This poem almost made me cry because it reminded me of my dearest Mama. Now I can truly say that I'm one of your fans.

Apples don't fall far from the tree...My bet is she always knew how you felt... My guarantee is that if she missed it here...she' knows it now & forever, after reading this fine emotion packed gem.....She knows...just like you know how your children feel, no matter what....Mom's just know....Excellent tributive, Mrs. Degnan ~ ~ ~
