Not just a wonderful tribute, but a wonderful picture in words of a worthy person, revealed through what he had done. Excellent poem.
Great word pictures of an incredible person. Enjoyed all of it. The flow of the words fit the mood of the poem quite well.
Wonderful and well-written tribute to your brother-in-law. By this account, he was well-loved and greatly missed. Your poetry is beautiful.
This is just so good! I particularly loved "We see you in
Their hands,
Their eyes,
Their hearts
Forever more
Your knowledge
Molding theirs."
What a wonderful tribute to an amazing man.
Enjoyed this - masterfully done with wonderful images. A wonderful tribute!
Your poem paints a lovely picture of this wonderful man. Well done!
Fantastic imagery--I loved that the carpetry was both a metaphor and the reality. Very well done.
This is a beautiful tribute and I enjoyed the flow. I found the last stanza especially touching.
Moving and incredible writing:
But a new job awaits:
Now you build afar
Playing a new song
Laying a new foundation

What a tender, poignant piece. Very nice job indeed!
Loved how he was instrumental in the lives of his grandchildren.
Lovely free verse poem! I especially like the third stanza -it's very touching. This flowed so well, and you paced it just right.
I loved the ending of this. I can picture him up in Heaven constructing our mansions that we will someday live in. Very touching and beautiful.
Wonderful! I loved the first verse best, that summed up all the different roles. Again, Wonderful! ^_^
