A poem about and for my mother who passed away little over a week ago. Could be a second part to "I'm Going Down With You (Eulogy For the Dying)". Please let me know what you think. :)

Sorry that I haven't posted for ages, I just kinda lacked motivation and inspiration. I'll try to have some sort of one-shot up tomorrow night if I can. :)
(#) tortillachip 2012-03-20 04:57:06 PMThis is a beautiful poem! I think it really showed your emotions and it wasn't depressing. I'm glad that you will dwell on all of the positive aspects of your mother's life. And I completely agree that someone would want to be remembered for their good qualities. This is a very emotional poem and it really is truly amazing. I absolutely believe that you should give her your poem. It is honestly marvelous!
Author's responseAw, thank you very, very much! I'm really relieved that you thought that this wasn't depressing; I was really worried that it came across as all mopey and that's the one thing that I didn't want this to be, so it's really nice to know that you don't think it was depressing.I think I will give to my Nan; I hope she likes it!
Thank you soooo much for taking the time to leave such a detailed review! :)
