A Few Visitor Comments

I think this poem is the best expression of hard times that everyone goes through but has no explanation to, times that the poet gracefully described in feelings and emotions. I was feeling bad today and the poem spoke to me. Thanks.
Your poem was so touching. I think a lot of people will like it. It's beautiful.
This is exactly how I am feeling right now. Your words moved me.
I thought that poem was very Good, Life is difficult some times and I felt that it relates to me, so Good Job
This is a very good poem, it says alot. My daughter is going through a very trying time right now and I am going to make a hard copy and send it to her. She has had nothing but hard times in her life. Hopefully this will sooth her and let her know that I will always be there for her!
This poem is amazing. I have been in that situation, that that is exactly how I felt. You did an amazing job of expressing those thoughts that run thru your head when something like that happens.
Reading this poem reminded me of me, the me that I thought was lost. But now I know that this heart still beats, with memories that I cherish the most.
