This poem has everything - tragedy, a hint of romance... and a PUPPY! Wonderful!
A lovely story in poem form - wonderfully written :)
Kenn said it all. :) This is a good read.
Really lovely poem! I agree; romance, chocolate, and puppies just can't be beat. Though the trials of the main character are sad, the actions of her loving young man leave me with a smile!
I too, have to agree with Kenn because he said it all. This takes the reader on a whole spectrum of emotions! And that's a good thing - along with the great writing.

Kudos on this!
Amen to Kenn's comment. This is a keeper.
I just love this - can't say it any better than Kenn! Loved the meter.
I loved the last lines! The puppy was the perfect finale. :-)
Your sweet poem showed a mom's desire to make her child happy. It was so sweet and I was happy (like the mom) to know there was a devoted boy and a puppy to help.
This is too cute. The flow was great. I felt the mother's agony and the love for her child.

You did a wonderful job.
So tender--with a touch of romance. What a good job! :-)
What a lovely story you've told in rhyme! Well done!
This was lovely Chrissy. I loved that it tackled some of the 'sadness' of happiness. Does that make sense? It does to me anyway.
What a delightful poem, Chrissy! I loved it! It was filled with harsh realities, a faithful suitor, and a puppy! Now that's the recipe for a successful poem! Well done.
