Interesting. Years ago for our children I made this little rule. They had to periodically repeat it after me.

When you're wrong, admit it.
When you're right, shut up.

I'm an avid reader and obviously had read this years earlier and the last part stuck with me.

We lost our 96-year-old dad this past week. He was an honorable veteran of WWII and a wonderful man to all. This is the perfect poem to be read at his burial service tomorrow. Thanks for sharing!

Because you had autism? If she loved you she would have understood, she didn't deserve you if It that was the case.

I lost my son 11/2/2017. He was unaware that he was ill until it was too late. I didn't get to the hospital in time before he was placed on a ventilator and never woke up after several days. It is not fair, and I can find no reason. I know that he is no longer suffering in pain, but I need him here. That mother to son bond is still with me, and I think that maybe I can feel him now, somehow. I agree, no mother should ever have to attend her own child's funeral and I seriously doubt that I will ever find comfort.

After feeling a bit low and sorry for myself, this poem had me falling about laughing - what a tonic, much better than a visit to the doctor.

My beloved sister Carolyn was taken away from me suddenly with a heart attack on November 14, just some 6 weeks ago. It seems a lifetime already, and I just can't imagine the rest of my life without her. The poem is beautiful, and I relate to the words and sympathize with all comments made. It would seem life is never to be the same. My heart goes out to all, and I can only take strength in her beautiful, short life, aged just 47. Love to all, Terry xxx

Missing my dad so much. He was a wonderful man. He was suffering from kidney failure. When he left us, I was so young and couldn't even bear the pain. Mom died 2 years back. It's terrible to live without your parents. Everything has changed after you left, Mom. I'm not the same as I used to be. I miss both of them so much.

Thank you! I love it. My father hanged himself while I was in the house when I was 17. I'm now 26. It was a shock and a loss, but he was in so much pain. He left me and my sister behind. Keep going. We will push through!
