Ahhhh.... so touching!

I saw my father grieve every day for Mama. I'm glad this ends with a happy tone.
Wow this is just raw emotion on the page filling my heart. You managed to fill the page with the pain in such a beautiful yet sad way. This is a stunning poem.

This is a lovely free verse. So poignant it brought tears to my eyes. Very well done, poet.

You took sorrow and wrapped it in wonderful, descriptive language. The widow's pain was palpable - so real. I love how you contrasted," shawl of darkness" with, "the illuminating glimmer" and "glow of day."

Poetry at its best!

I really liked the progress of this; travelling through the darkness of grief and then slowly seeing the light that brought hope.

The resemblance in the faces of family was, I thought, brilliantly done.

Magnificent. I love every line, every heartbeat ...

Beautifully written, with such a poignant message. Our loved ones do, indeed live on in the ones left behind.
