    I really love your poem! I love the dedication too. It's sad that you had to dedicate it to fallen soldiers, but it is a great way to honor them. (Report) Reply

    i am so proud of you nick
    finding out resentley that this poem you wrote
    was used at the funeral of an american marine
    someone you had never meet or even known existed is a great tribute
    to your talent, also that out of all the hundreds of great poets the family chose
    your work, which has also been posted on a memorial forum for a deceased
    firefighter well done (Report) Reply
