I can understand you. It's an unbearable loss. On May 8, 2019, my brother and his friend were in a car accident and died on the spot. Five minutes before, he was with us, and within a second they both left us. We are still in shock.

This poem touched my heart in so many ways! I'm writing this through tears. On June 23, 2019, I lost my dad to cancer. I had just gotten to meet him. That sounds odd, I know, but I didn't get to know my dad until I was 36 years old. I found out I am his first born. My brothers and sister got to have him their whole lives, but I only got to know him for a few years. I feel cheated, even though I could have gone to see him more often than I did. Thank you for this beautiful poem. It really helped me.

A beautiful poem with childhood memories, both positive and negative. The experience of many younger brothers, I guess.

Don't let it bring you down. Don't give up on love. There is still true love to be found. Just stay in the fight.

It's a beautiful poem and it's so true. You have touched my heart with your poem because no one understands, so we go along pretending we are ok and wait as the burdens get heavier.

The poem projects the image of a truly loving mother. Irrespective of caste and creed mothers are always ready to make sacrifices for their children. It is a universally accepted truth. I feel that the poem compels many to rethink about their mothers.

I had a similar childhood in which many rejected my company. As I grew up, I identified my skills and I could draw the attention of others. My teachers were helpful in this regard. I feel that this poem makes the adults aware of the situation of some hidden individuals in society who need much attention to escape from their lonely life.
