John, That is such a beautiful emotional piece....It almost brought tears to my eyes. No, wait it did. This is such a powerful, powerful poem. I have nothing but good things to say about this poem. I loved it. It was very sad but oh so beautiful. You did such a good job and explaining in detail. Its going on my faves for I admire this poem alot. Take Care.
Such a wonderful write. I think that you really captivated a lot of people with the power in this one. The emotions on this.....I agree....WOW.....
I am over here feeling as though I am lost as well. At times, we lose loved ones....and we always have that thought in the back of our minds...If only I would have been there. I would have made things different.
Yet, destiny is what it is right. I know that a person can put themselves in a situation that they can't handle....but at other times....it is out of their control.
You showed a lot of heart with this write. I think that the format, the rhythm, and the wording....PERFECT!
Pretty powerful piece, no? But that's probably what you had in mind. I think it was nicely put, and the repitition of the one part really added. A lot of times, it won't sound good or look good, but in this case, it did!
I really liked it, sorry I don't have much else to say....
alll i can say is that this is sooo powerful and that the emotion is sooo strong and i am sorry for you loss.... sooo very sorry i have a friend in war right now tooo and just hoping not to get that call myself
This was deeply felt. Deeply written in love, sadness, and beauty. I think it's beautiful how much you loved him but it's terribly sad that he died in combat. I nearly cried while reading this. I like the way this was written. Good ryhme. This was great. What I look for in poems more than anything is the poem's story. What the meaning behind it is. This....was truly felt and was beautiful and tragic. Great write.
