Awe, this is really, really sweet. This is truly spoken like a loving mother who has invested everything into her children. I'll bet that if I could personally see the lads, I'm sure that they would give you a good report. This is good work and I enjoyed reading this inspirational and well written work. Well done!

This sort of illuminates how I feel also - one of the best parts of our lives have been the children, now grown and taking care of their children. To think that God was generous to give us these sons. Well, I surely agree with you.

Well, I appreciate the conclusion. (I only raised one, wish there had been more.)

I am not sure what you were trying for.

I do not claim to have expertise in overt rhyming, but I do have a question?

Were you planning to have the rhymes be purely visual?

If so you succeeded. But if you wanted them to be musical, the vowel sounds of the "done" " gone" and "tone" are each very different from one another and do not work for a listener.

I think you meant this to be more "verse" than literary poetry, and that is fine.

For me, it is pleasant, somewhat comforting, even skillful, but does not stretch my perception or understanding.

I wish it did.

    So sorry you didn't feel the lilt. There was obviously no particular type of rhyme. Thank you for your attention.

This is both a welcomed and an intellectual piece to come across. It exhibits that love vividly without mention of the word. I like the humbleness that it implies as well as the selfless character that we can all respect. Beautiful!

Blessings Raffaelina. I really enjoyed your rhyming poem. I rhymed very well and flowed smoothly. As I read it I thought what is it? What is the best part of her? And then when you answered with your four boys, I looked at the image you chose of four little birds. Wow! what an ending. Well done!

Well, as a mother know where you're coming from! Often our children do inherit the best of our genes and go on to lead responsible, productive lives. Thank you for sharing these uplifting sentiments.

This is very, very well written and has an awesome truth and value to be taken from it. I like the ending and how you've taken the focus off of the egotistical to the joy of having children to care for to take the attention off of self. This is selfless and honourable. Well said and presented.
