this poem described how i feel about my best friend exactly(except for the fact he's a guy) it made me cry. i don't know what i would do without my bf and i know that if we never got to see tomorrow that he knows everything this poem says is how i feel.

So honest and powerful, I was nearly in tears. Half because it made me reaslise how special my best friend is to me and half out of jealousy for the girl he wrote it for!

When our life gets too complicated we sometimes lose sight of those little things that make life a little sweeternd more bearable. And it's really assuring to begin to look back on the blessing we have... the love we have.. and to cultivate that much needed attitude of thanksgiving and gratitude. Thanks for bringing out the essentials for making this otherwise melancholic life a little better.

As a retired English teacher, I wish I had had Mr. King in one of my classes. "For All the Times" is a simple, yet moving expression of what friendship really means. His use of free verse works beautifully; his sentiments are so purely stated. His sensitivity is obvious. I particularly like his use of repetition. Can we ever say "Thank you" enough? It's a poem I intend to hand copy for my husband as an anniversary card - my husband is my best friend. Perhaps I should also, with Mr. King's permission, copy that first stanza as a Mother's Day card to my Mom. In fact, maybe Mr. King should consider approaching Hallmark Cards or Gibson cards. They are always open to new writers, and his poem would be ideal for Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, or Father's Day. Most especailly the first stanza. It might even be a good card for a graduating child to give to his/her parents. What a tribute to ! their efforts and what a loving thank you to parents. If he considers it, tell him I'm a veteran watercolor painter. I'd be honored to do an illustration; however, Hallmark and Gibson usually use their own in-house illustrators for cards. He needs to go for it. If I saw that poem in a card at a store, I'd buy - like I said - one for my husband, my mom and my dad. Gifted young man.

My friend and I just had a fight. It was my fault that all of this happened and from my heart I feel terrible about it all. At first I thought we were through but I'm hoping that we can work things out. I sent her this email in hopes that she might see how upset I am and try to forgive me. I thought that it was a beautiful poem and should be published in Chicken Soup for the soul or in some book. It has a lot of hidden meaning in it, I think and it should be shared with the world.
Lynne
