Yes, poignant message indeed! You've put into verse the reality of many older adults. Thank you!

This really caught me...I usually skim poetry but your words grabbed. Such truth and good message! It was sadness and hope together.Thanks!

To invoke the topic of "space" - 3rd paragraph's "place" could be replaced by "space"; However, it's a terrific poetic view of life after....60? I thought you were writing my life story, that's how real it was to me. I loved it, and it is so true, and so nicely done. God Bless.

Lovely poem of rhyming couplets with a great message. There is sadness at the loss, but also the realization that what is lost is not really important
