Spitfire, you've just written one of my favorite poems. Very touching, very warm, and vividly shows one never loses that link to mom, no matter where we are, or how long we've been gone. Mom's are unique, we always seek their warmth (physical and spiritual), and they are always the first and the last name we call. I am a father, and am extremely close to my children, and although I know my bond with them is as perfect as I can attain, I know I will never have the same bond with them, their mother has, and I envy women that!
Mother's are wonderful creatures, and I adore them all, and I think your poem very much a mothers day poem because it plainly expresses the love and the need we all have for our mothers.
Thank you for it...
