This is a vote, not a critique. i was really touched by ur poem and it made me think about life after death being that my father is old and im not. i felt sorry for myself because now i really dont get a long with my father and dont like to see him alot. but ur poem made me think about what life would be like when hes gone. now i realize that i should precious him ow or forever hell be missed.

I really enjoyed this poem, because my best friend just recently lost her older brother as well when I showed her this poem she really related to what the author was saying in the writing. The author puts feeling in this piece and it shows.

MaryAnn
This Poem is really beautiful and I think it will help people that are having grief problems, I have a very good friend that has lost her 26 year old daughter due to child birth complactions, she has left behind a 4 yr old son and the new baby girl, her mother father and a Brother who is having very hard time with the loss of his sister. this poem is about the loss of a brother but it could go either way! loss of a sister also, the words are comforting, and shows that you never loose that person, you just cant see them, to print and frame this and hang it on the wall, will make you see you never forget, time just goes on! thank you for shareing this. also shows Gods will is much stronger than Anything!
Rose

Hailey
hey jenn i am taking the time to write to you and let you know that your poem really touched me. i lost a friend of mine neally a year ago and it still hurts, i took it alot better than many of my friends expecially my boyfriend who was best friends with him at the time he died. i am really sorry about your brother but never do forget that the people around you love you and will always stick by you. if you need to cry they will be there, i have never seen anyone take a loved one dying as bad as my boyfriend did and still is, but he has gotten through it and i have stuck by him. i hope you have someone to do the same because i know that trying to cope by yourself is the hardest thing ever. stay strong, all my love to you and your family

I like this poems because it is a good way to learn about and to find out more about death. they descripe the death not as a bad thing sondern as a good thing. They show that nobody must be afraid of death.

That poem was awesome! It made me cry because my brother is also 21 and was in a car accident last May and that kinda reflected it! It must be hard to lose them cuz it's very hard just to find out that they were in a car accident!
Chelsey
Jenn, That was very well written. Brother's can be so important in life and it sucks to lose them. Keep the attitude. It helps.
Jamie
This poem is wonderful! I liked it a lot!
Mandy
Dear Jenn, I just wanted to let you know that I really like your poem. I could really FEEL you. I could really feel the poem. It really touched me....
inma
hi Jenn im a Spanish girl who studies at Cardiff university. im 20 years old and my mother died last year. i was really touched when reading your poem, bec it expresses what i do feel. although those we love can go away, they will always be in our hearts, so its as if they were always with us. ive read that your brother died just 2 months ago. its really recent. if u need to talk to someone, just send me an e-mail and i will try to help u. Sometimes just expressing your feelings makes u feel better. try it with me if u need it. be patient, and give it time, u will never forget such nightmare, but as time passes by, u get used to it somehow. its very sad, but life goes on, and we have to continue, thats what they would like us to do. all the best, inma belloso
Annie
This poem brought me both both tears & a smile. Thank you Jenn

Sinead
Jenn is my very best friend and I love her with all my heart. I didn't know her brother but I really wish I did. Everything I hear about him lets me know that he was an amazing brother, son, friend and person. I only wish I could have been so lucky as to have had the honor of knowing him. xoxo
