Dear PD...This poem is on a level well above any stock adjectives of praise. I've re- read three times....each time finding new ways of interlocking phrasing on many emotional levels.... I have touched on this subject matter in two, past poems. It's my privilege to be associated with such a superbly gifted writer....who inspires me... Your PS friend and fan....... Gene Bourne

Hi Linda What an emotional poem. Sad but true. ALL OF IT !!. It sad that this poem will be ageless. And never out of style. Sad really to have to think that. Thanks for reading my poems as well. Karen

Again, I will tell you Linda. This poem is such a strong and emotional piece of great writing. Poems like this can draw a reader into it. Where they can experience what it is that you are feeling when you wrote it....Hugs....Roger

Painful and sad, I hope the wounds have healed. I can't imagine writing like this unless it applied.

i was emotionally exhausted when i finished reading, saw so many things and unpleasent memories, love and life is a battlefield, now i sit back and i realize somehow i survived, as so many others who have seen these very things happen to either themselves or to others. It is a painful reality, thats why looking ahead and making the best of what you have helps to renew the soul and the spirit, please accept my ssmile and thank you for sharing
