There is nothing here I don't love. This poem is like Jan's Master's Class come to life. I'm left with a painful lump in my throat. Wonderful.

Absolutely riviting...drenched with emotion...perfectly paced. Superb.
The voice within this poem is so real that it vibrates like vocal chords on paper. Beautifully done, evolving into a revealing ending.
I enjoyed how you unfolded the details one at a time. A beautiful piece.

This is wonderful--what a voice! Your metaphors are stunning.
So real, so tender, every line deeply considered, nothing superfluous. You have painted a word picture of the intangible inner life. Well done.
