Wow, lots going on here! I liked the story you wove in between, very nice! Your title is great, compassion is the fashion. We need to get that message out!

The title drew me in and what a lovely tribute.

I love your title and I love that phrase. It jumped out to me and stuck in my head. This was very lovely. I was a bit distracted by the overall rhythm of the poem, and I thought at times the stretch of rhyming took a bit away from it. I would love to see this in free verse, where you just write the feeling without focusing quite as much as the rhyme. My favorite description was We didn't always have a lot of money, But she would try to make your days, feel sunny. When I think of my mom - I could completely relate to how she made the most out of the not so good - and made so much in my life more sunny.
