    Now I am tearing, I do not know if from happiness or grief Perhaps happiness, but if happiness is it from the message of hope you conveyed, or from the amazement of the beautiful words you created?

      Thank you Mr Swan and Ben,
      I'm sending this to Birdy to read
      While she receives chemotherapy and radiation treatment.

      She once told me lullabies don't have happy endings
      ....as her momma, I'll prove to her, that is not true.

    There is nothing quite like a mother's love. That is all.

    Take care, Andrea.

    Andrea,

    Wow! The imagery is sparkling in this poem, and as the reader you don't want to look away. You pain such a great picture.

    It seems like this poem is about someone who has strayed from nature (their love) and is now getting it back after soul searching in darkness. You want to to live for the loss you have suffered. Such a beautiful poem. Hugs you.

    A truly beautiful lullaby. Rich in love and with what you write best - nature. It's something I can imagine a mother singing softly to her child. Definitely a nomination. Milly x

    As Ben said I completely agree.
    We all pray to God about so many things at the same time, for once he can avoid ours but never a mother's prayer.
    Just keep on praying, Andrea
    We all are praying too for a happy ending.

    Take care.

    It is in a mother's nature to fight for our children and se will go to the extreme. Praying has helped me sadly my daughter has not changed yet. I gave her to God. I wish you all the best and lots of happiness.

    This clearly speaks of a parents love for an estranged and perhaps lost child.

    I think it would be an easy thing to dwell upon and write about the negative aspects of such an experience but this poem does not follow that path. At least I think!

    It tells of hope, of not giving up and it shows a great deal of strength and resolve.

    I wouldn't normally quote from a poem but no this occasion I will.

    "My soul shall adorn you
    with a daisy chain around your heart,
    for you are golden,
    my child of the moon"

    Quite possibly some of the most beautiful words I have read.

    Craig

    Can say this now. Most of us know the story and we pray for you both.

    Ps. I ain't god squad, but it's worth a shot x
