This is beautiful. I feel your pain (literally). I'm very sorry for your loss.

I actually started tearing up from reading this, because tomorrow is three years past when my best friend died and you described my emotions exactly.

Well done.

I felt pain when I read this and tears filled my eyes. This poem is absolutely powerful, beautiful, and sad. The way you done the breaks also added to the power, beauty, flow, and uniqueness of this piece. You're a very talented author. I know that your friend's death has left you hurting but you turned it into a meaningful, powerful poem. I'm sure she would be very pleased with it. Don't ever stop writing.

Wow. That was really great. The repetition worked beautifully. I really liked what you did with the three lines every once and a while. I have no idea what that's called but I love seeing it in poems. I liked this a lot and don't have anything I really think you should change about it :)

Incredibly touching and beautiful. Love the raw emotions felt in the simplest of words. I also like the spacing and structure of the poem; it helps it to flow and read quite well. Keep up your hat work it was a pleasure to read.
