    Whoa. Wot a powerfully emotive dedication, David. The raw human loss and survival of it all. See, you can knock free verse out of the park as a homerun when you want to....maybe this is connected when the topic comes purely from your heart. A big congratulations on your win!

    Oh gulp. I was reading the comments below & things finally clicked in place I was wondering about the line, about losing half your DNA-- I can be a bit dense, considering I have a twin myself I guess I should have gotten this poem more? What stood out for me here was the Emotion, I just couldn't get this out of my head, this poem, your last couple of lines totally gripped my heart, all the more now that I understand who this is for. Very beautiful, touching poem, David! Super congrats :D!

    How this touches my heart David, The acute sorrow in this verse can't help someone feel the pain you are experiencing. A beautiful sad verse with so much love expressed. Thank you for sharing my friend.

    So lovely David..sadly its something we all tell ourselves 'happens to other people' and it's hard when its your own. A million tomorrows isnt going to stop you missing her. Big big hugs x0x It is really nice to see you writing again David, it does help :)
