Charming and lovely - and I adore the title. This absolutely warmed my heart!
I loved the poem. I liked the persoanl touch of using specific names and requests.
It read very smoothly and the ryhming was great, as well as rhythm. A poem doesn't have to have perfect ryhme or rythmn to be well written. Slant end rhymes are even more interesting than perfect ryhming these days!

“Though they’ll never know of her efforts that night
Her prayers for their burdens would help make them light.”

A real unsung hero. This was such a delightful poem. I also liked that you used individual names with each of their struggles. It made this piece more real. Well done!
Yeah, Donna ! Well deserved Ist Place! Great job!

I could almost hear it said 'sing-song' just like the original poem. Such more depth of meaning though! ;) Good work.

Donna, excellent job. Well worth the acclaim you are receiving. The ultimate unsung hero that speaks to anyone. Beautiful, and well written. I generally am not a big fan of poetry, but this one worked well for me.
