Walk Two Moons takes its time to show you that Sal's mother died whereas the poem “Missing Mama” is right to the point. One of the feelings that they both go through is not being able to go with their mothers and be with them forever.

And immediately after the divorce my grandfather got married to another woman, which left people in the community and my grandmother in absolute shock. My grandmother was relieved that she got a divorce because she felt like the marriage was setting her ten steps back and she also saw his true colours when he chose to get married soon after the divorce.
As Virmati does, her daughter too hates her mother, she too do not want to become like her mother.
