This is a beautiful poem and a lovely tribute to your parents who brought you up with love, guidance and the knowledge of God. Thank God that He is able also to intervene in the lives of others who were not raised with such love and conviction! He can reach down into those lives by other means. But this poem shows His plan for parenting so beautifully! The pattern of rhyme was so interesting and well done. Great job! God bless you! Linda

i know i'm not a poet so i can't compete in this particular arena. i take my hat off to you. i heard the message in your poem and that's most important.
Very nicely, done, Lisa.
I love poetry - writing and reading - and this was beautifully crafted with a great message. It reminded me of one of those great poems that often ends up framed in a child's room!! This is worthy of framing! Congratulations!

Oh what a well deserved 1st place. Truly inspired and beautifully written. All newborns should be clutching a copy of this in their tiny fists to pass on to mum and dad.
The style of this poem is so unique - I really enjoyed it. Congratulations. Well deserved!!!

I was one of the judges for this week. I thought your poem was wonderful. The structure was well considered and your choice of words was spot on. There were lines that I almost memorised. A well deserved win.
