This is just lovely...I signed in earlier simply to nominate it only to find someone had beaten me to it. It's a very honest, raw and emotional write and...if it's not on the front page next week then I will be on here making some serious noise!
Bravo Maryanne...it's really quite beauitiful...

Maryanne, This poem is so honest and real and i love the story you tell here. I truly believe that the best poems are not filled with cliches or metaphors, its based on reality, and you have written this well.
