Beautifully written. I will keep a copy of this with my will, to be read at my memorial service someday. Thank you!
Something about this poem just touched me deeply. It reinforced what I've always known. people excel when you believe in them and faith is a powerful tool.
This poem was exactly what I was looking for, I don't think have or ever will read another one like it! Keep up the good work, Kate!
I really love the detail and emotion that the author put into this poem. This is a great poem and I think it shows the feeling a lot of parents have (when their kids grow up.)
