    Well Valerie, I had to vote this one a ten and add to my favorites list before making it to the comments box! This poem in my eyes is simply utter perfection. So beautifully written. And that last verse? Oh! Those first two lines in the last stanza are brilliant! And then you close it with that sad but brutal fact that this kiss is his last goodbye. The vivid descriptiveness through the who, e poem just evokes such a moving and soul stirring picture! Love this, love this, love this! Did I tell you that I love this? Lol. (Report) Reply

    Sigh. Valerie, you wrote so beautifully of a dreadful time that instead of running away have found me sitting at her bedside, tears united on my chins would slide down of my neck to stop with a splash on the feet. (Report) Reply

Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
