I'm no joking when I said tha this poem made me well up in the end. It's such a pretty story, pure and true. I was grinning like a happy li'l mofo at the beginning and then that was all snatched away in the last stanza. It's a perfectly written story. I can't believe I've never read any of your poetry before this. It's just fantastic.
Oh, but in the second stanza I was slightly irritated by the word "tho." I'm against that type of speech in poetry. Just thought I'd let you know. :P
