Joanne,
I, too, want my dad back. He was never sick a day in his life. I am your age as well, with a family of my own. I truly believed that if I cried out to the Almighty that I wanted my dad back even for just one human moment to hold him once again and scent of my dearest papa. I feel closer to my papa now more than ever and oh so glad he was chosen to be my dad. My birthday in October 2017 was my first without him. I have papa's intelligent eyes and unibrow to the detail. He is with me in each new dawn.
Take care!

My mom passed away just few days ago, Nov. 4, 2017. And my heart is sad. I can barely function. I love her so. She fell and hit her head and was ripped away from me and my babies. I know she loves us, but I'm still very sad...

This poem touched my heart! I've been friends with a girl I met in grade school, and we have been best friends for fifty-two years! She is a very wonderful person and is always there for me--and likewise. We make sure we keep in touch and meet for lunches to catch up on the latest gossip! I know our friendship will last until the end of time. Thanks for writing this great poem about true friends!

I am 9 and I really loved this poem. It is so touching. I'm so sorry for what happened to you when you were a child. I agree that people should pay more attention to child abuse. It is so bad! It's horrible to think that some people can be so cruel to anyone. I think that the people who do the abuse probably got abused when they were a child and think that they can take their anger out by abusing and bullying people that are younger than them. It makes them feel powerful. But really, they are just making life hard for themselves. There are only few people that abuse and bully for the sake of being bad and mean. It's like smoking. Once you've started, it's hard to stop.

This poem helped me get out of depression. I recite it every morning after I get up and every night before going to bed.

Dear Ruth,
I have been searching for a poem to read at my mother's funeral. I would like to read "You Mattered To Me." Her funeral is tomorrow. This really touched my heart.
Kindest regards,
Amalia

I was 21 when I fell pregnant and I didn't know what to do. I wasn't in a relationship; he was a boy I worked with, and he was horrible from the moment he found out I was pregnant. I wanted to keep my baby, but he was adamant I couldn't. He told me if I kept my baby it would ruin his life and asked how I could do that to him! I felt I had no choice, so I had the abortion. It was 11 years ago now, and I have tried counseling, but that doesn't work. I have constant regret and wish I hadn't done it. I remember the date I found out I was pregnant, the date I had the abortion, and the date he would have been born. It's coming up to that date soon (November 24th), and it never gets easier. Never ever have an abortion for someone else because they won't be there for you after!

Wow, this poem came to me at the perfect time...during a huge loss of THE ONE in November. On his birthday he thought I broke it off, but I was just crushed when he failed to be there when I learned my grandchildren were being adopted out. I asked him to call, and he didn't, so I freaked He says I broke it off, but it was him who unfriended me, took all our pictures down, and blocked me so he could talk in private with an old ex he cheated on me with years ago. However, he didn't realize I wouldn't stop or interfere in his happiness if that's what makes him happy. He didn't even get to find out I got the place I've been trying hard to move into, and I move next week. WE were going to move in together, but because he blocked me he didn't get that great news. Anyway, this poem really hit home for how I feel about him. Thanks!

I'm only nine. My best friend and I were separated last year. I moved to Florida, and she is in New York. I really miss her. Her name is Lyric, and she meant the world to me. I don't know how I actually survived without her. I want to finish this story, but I can't concentrate with so many tears in my eyes.
