Your poem was wonderful. I lost my father in 2001. Even though it has been a few years, it still seems like yesterday. I was his little girl. I know you have a great talent.
Richelle
I lost my father 1month and 1 day ago. Your poem described my feelings.
Samantha
This poem touched me more than anything else in this world. I had to bury my daughter a few months ago. She was only 3mths. If it wasn't for my other daughter. I don't think I could go on. She's the only one that keeps me going day to day.
Ruby
This was a beautiful poem, and it has special meaning for me because my dad died last week. I was there with him, holding his hand when he died, and that was one of the most saddest moments in my life. Thank you for this poem, and I think it is simply beautiful.
Sal
This poem touched my heart in more ways than one, It has brought tears to my eyes, to think that I had a similar feline friend that filled my friendship void, and now she's gone, the pain is more than what anyone else could understand.
Sierra
Your poem was soo touching! As I read it, I cried so hard, it was terribly sad, but happy as well. You did an excellent job on it. I hope your brother's memory never leaves you.
Cindy
How beautiful a poem,how sad and touching. It is a comfort to read someone who is living the same feelings as we are. Good work
