Your son is luckier than he can know at his tender age. I should have been so lucky as to have a mother such as you. But I made it through those years if not unscathed and least alive. Really nice write lady.

beautifully written, it's hard as a parent to let them fall, when we want to catch them always. I remember those days as a teen and with my thirteen year old am starting to see it from the other end, thanks for sharing

I don't know who is more fortunate, you or Brandan. I can hardly believe he is fifteen already. You are always just a happy thought away and we can all be thankful that you share your happy thought with us. I would love to hear the tune to this song in my ears, though I hear it in my mind, I bet yours is all the better for the inspiration of its creation is love. jj

Mom's have to understand that teenage kids come to you, because they are afraid to tell you they are falling, they come to you because you have always had the answers before. You just have to know enough to listen and ask the right questions, it appears you have mastered the art Lori, great write.

What a beautiful expression of parent/child relationship! How well so many readers must relate to this wonderful poem.

This is really sweet. As only a loving mother could write it. Reminds me a lot of my own mum. God rest her soul...I do miss her.

I like the "matter-a-fact" way this is expressed.

a wonderful poet, a wonderful mother. what more can a son want in this lovely mix? what more can a reader want, but all the ingredients are here to cure what ails. and it does not fail so to do. read and be well. be well.
