Artisitic tribute to your mother that this reader appreciates. Like the way your descritption rolled like a reel of tape with audio...great presentation. Your subject matter was interesting even in its sentiment hardly boring like I really like "One day I hope to emulate to walk the shadow of one so great to be to sleep to smile to keep... The ways of My Mother" `Always write poetry, Cheryl.
This greaqt descripion...i get a picture of your mom just reading. This really would be a good Mother's day present. It's very touching. I love the second stanza, its very fitting and apt to the subject, and flows beautifully. "She kissed my hurts like skinned knees." That was a great line too, and good how it described emotional hurt like a simple skinned knee. Very good job. Laura
A very heartwarming tribute to your Mom. I do hope you let her read this. As a mother, I know it would have touched me deeply. I enjoyed your description of her physical, and inner beauty. And the greatest tribute of all...wanting to be like her. A very nice write.. and so fitting for a Mother's Day poem. ~Sandra
