Inspired by Tom leaving.  

It's a gray cloud covered day cold and rainy to match my mood, my mind is on this irrational sense of loss felt deep inside; I sigh as I read words that reflect the essence of who you are. I work my way up the list, from the first one posted months ago, to the most recent; I read them all, slowly and wonder, how did I miss this one before, or this one, or this … Tenderly highlighting each line, I copy and paste your thoughts into mine

I like what you replied at the bottom here to someone, Indeed, our poems here are a type of diary of not just our own poetry but of people who came and then left our lives. I just love what you said at the ending of your poem. So special, Becca.

Hi Becca, Long time eh'? :) I don't know who this Tom is right off hand, but you have done a touching tribute to him. Well done. I hope he see's it.

I am deeply touched by your poignant poem, Becca- makes us realize that we need to find the goodness, and good works in all. Many famous poets and writers in the past didn't get on with one another, and yet their " body " of works remain to be read. And to make us think...It's obvious that Tom had a positive influence on many, and we should take that into account.((HUGS)))

Thank you Becca for this touching tribute to Tom, I'm sad he's gone, he is so talented, I told him before please leave your poems if you want a break great but don't delete...probably 30% of my faves were his..now what? I wish him the best, he'll probably be back!

I think we have all experienced that, Becca, but in hindsight, reading my stuff is like a journey back, there are milestones amidst the whimsy. Lovely piece, and the last line is genius. Viv x

There are times I have thought of removing all my poems. I sometimes wonder if there is or has been any purpose in putting pen to paper. I remember the sense of loss I felt when you removed your poems from this site. I am glad you have come back and have left a few morsels to savour.

Rick, I'm glad you haven't removed your poems. It is kind of a diary or a history of being here, and I regret deleting all of mine, because I lost that "diary" and also because it deleted all the comments, and those always mean something to me. And yes there is a purpose, you have reached many people through your poetry here and your book.

So sorry for our loss, congratulations on your honor...

You like him and he made you laugh because you were not threatened by his critiques or his religous arguments. I think people who have confidence in themselves and their beliefs are able to handle differing opinions better. Thanks for the love.

I actually like Tommy! He's come onto my page and rebuked my work. He's made me laugh, although I told him he wasn't funny. I've had silly religious arguments with him and everything. At least he is honest. I salute Tommy. Love sent...

Aw there's my sweet friend... Thank you. I would tell him, but I'm not in touch with him now, and he has deleted all his poems :( but it's so awsome that you wrote this comment - maybe he'll see all the support he has and come back one day. I'm so glad to see that YOU are still here, Keith! Thanks for stopping by!

Your tender emotions are expressed in such a beautiful way, Becca. Your poignant tribute is moving and your last stanza is absolutely exquisite. I will miss July, as well, as I enjoyed his visits as much as his stirring poetry. Congratulations on your wonderful and well deserved recognition with POTD honors.. ~Susan
