The poem is really an allegory that teaches children a useful lesson for life.
Sis Beryl, such great writing. Superb. Every line is beautiful and flows and rhymes. This acrostic is the greatest as per me. God bless your poetic talent.
I love this poem. I used it at my father's funeral in 2013. I now share it with any farming friends in need of wonderful words. Still brings a lump to my throat when I read it. Thank you for the wonderful resource.
Thank you for this poem. It will be a year tomorrow, July 4, 2019, that I lost my third to oldest brother to cancer, and this hit home with me.
I lost my third to oldest brother to cancer. It will year tomorrow, July 4, 2019. There's not a day that goes by that I don't think of him. He was my daughter's godfather and one best brothers a sister could ask for. He was always here for me. I love Jay and miss so much.
An excellent and very moving poem that helps to send a clear message. I hope it gets read widely.
What a beautiful poem, one that so many of us can relate to, especially when "relating to" anyone or anything seems like an impossibility. Fabulous ending. Well done!
We, too, lost a friend in a motorcycle accident. We don't visit the place he died now. Yes, he was going too fast, but the council had changed the road he was on that he normally does not give way, so he went through. A women hit him, and he died instantly.
I had a friend when I was in prep, but we aren't friends anymore. Now she is just a bully to me. But I am friends with her little sister, which makes me happy. We have our ups and downs. Sometimes we don't talk to each other, but we are still friends.
My sister and I are not very close, but I am trying to come closer to her every day before her birthday, and I think this poem will bring me and her closer than we were ever before.
