    Mother's love is universal and time unbound. Sadly enough, We all get to the peak of it, mostly at her demise. Brilliant write. Congratulations! (Report) Reply

    Thank you everyone for your kind comments, regarding this poem!
    So pleased to have made Poem of the day x I may have confused some!
    Not sure what all the question marks are for? When I say that we will meet again,
    I'm talking about a better place, in Heaven which I do believe there is such a place.
    Nothing confusing really, I'm always open to any critiscism. Thanks again xx (Report) Reply
