That was very touching as a human who faces challenges almost every hour. This keeps me fighting!

Although I loved the poem, it is the last four lines that tear at my heart. Sums all my love for a man I last saw 8 years ago, knowing he still loved me. We had loved each other for over 20 years with many breaks and returns. Reasons he could not commit - yes, he was married, but there were other things that stopped him. (Not children) We parted with love in our hearts. I miss him still every day. We are old now. There will be no on else. My love is too deep to be ejected. Karen to TP

Beautiful poetry. The bond between grandparents and grandchildren is invaluable. The feelings in poetry are purely relatable.

I agree with your analysis of this piece. I plan to study it further to gain the insight that seems to be parallel with my current state.

My fiancee is in the Air Force (pilot), currently in Israel. He was supposed to come home in April, after being there a year. But he was offered a promotion last minute. He decided to take it and delay his homecoming by weeks, possibly months. We had been planning for a June wedding. It was so painful canceling everything. I never knew I could be that angry with and hurt by someone and still love them so, so incredibly deeply. He says he's coming home end of July. This will have been the longest 4 months of my life!! Your poem really touched me, almost as much as your intro. I had always thought of military spouses and girlfriends as being "mostly" strong and accepting of their life. It helps to know I'm not alone in this pain of missing my guy so much that it hurts. Thank you for sharing!

This poem has really touched me. It reminded me of my own family. I had six siblings, me being the seventh child. Sadly, four of them passed away. I now have two sister whom I love and cherish with all my being. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful words.
