Overflowing with depth, I found this hard to get through without shedding tears. Your parallel between God and earthly parents is a great lesson for every believer, and especially this mommy. Thank you for sharing your gift.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful...so rich in meaning, in poetic excellence, in feeling. This is one of the best poems I've read on this site.

Very beautifully written! I love this, "My crumpled, brooding body found, Marinating in disgrace, Holding epistles of gore inside;" Excellent thoughts and writing!

As much as my daughter loves her baby triplets right now, I told her there may be times they break your heart, but you go on loving them anyway. This poem is priceless, meaningful, beautiful and a reminder of God's love for us regardless... Great writing.
All I can say is a crumpled "Wow!" Any words would be inadequate for this splendid poem.
