Just wonderful! I loved the last line, it was truly special, it summed up the 'way' of a mother, I supposed. I liked it. Nice job! ^_^

What a tender, loving poem. It speaks of every young mother's heart at the very beginning, wanting so much to do a good job with the assignment God gave to them. Great poem!

The rhyming heartbeat of a mother. Just beautiful. And your ending was perfectly perfect.

I had to smile at this, "With bottles, diapers, baby food, -- I thought that I was through, -- When God sent me another child, -- Now son and daughter, too." I wonder how many FWers this has happened too. :) Your pleasant thoughts are so eloquently penned in this. Very nice!

I so admire your work. You say so much so well with so few words. Your last line resonates with me as I've heard it a thousand times from my own mother...."you will always be a child to me." Somehow, there is great comfort in that.

Oh, Verna! What a beautiful ode straight from a mother's heart! And your ending was just perfect. My, you've captured a mother's thoughts so completely and wonderfully here. I just love this.. it's so real and so lovely too. One of my favorites of all I've ever read! You are such a master poet! Thank you especially for this one.
