Liz this poem has me in tears. The heartbreak and pain is so raw and alive here that it's hard to not be automatically pulled into the emotional aspect of this piece. There are so many times we lose people and wish we could say things we left unsaid, only to agonize about them later. Trust that this person knows your feelings, knows you care, and give yourself the allowance to say goodbye in your own way now. This one definitely tugged at my heart.
What a powerful piece this is...the author captures our hearts with this tear jerking piece- I do love the simplistic and elegant style of this author. She takes the raw and deeply emotional subject of her father's passing and paints of a touching portrait of her heartfelt memories... The beautiful imagery starts this piece off with such beauty - I love her ways of expressing and talking about her father. The title is one that grabs me the most and sums up this piece to a tee... If only I had known.... It's a question that I have had within my thoughts many a time...the ending is one that left me speechless.... Touching write- Well Done Lioness
