Couldn't help but think of my grandfather at his end... beautiful message. I think you have a talent for making words that aren't supposed to rhyme, sound like they do. It eats at my OCD and makes me jealous at the same time : D
Ren, I really liked this a lot. I was totally engrossed the entire read. Really nice rhyming through out. Wasn't sure if this stranger was there to harm you or just make an appearance in your life. Well done!
Dear Cowgirl, what a beautiful, excellent piece! First of all, the title is brilliant, and the message of the poem kills me. The flow is absolutely beautiful and I must agree with Alec, not forced, but all the emotions just seem to tumble out with the unfolding of every line! Agree with Frank totally, this is like reading a symphony! Wow may fall short to describe how amazed I am of your talent. I am not only impressed, I appreciate you even more. Added to favorites!
