    At long last, my kindred spirit found.....
    for such words as these, poetry dance!
    With mine heart whisked away,
    as my tongue quakes to say:
    such saddened feel, this lost romance!

    Intensely beautiful. So glad to have found you Valerie. For so long I have felt alone in the world of classical poetry. I must agree with Achill below - this is certainly a masterpiece..... (Report) Reply

    A very touching and tender poem. Death can take its toll
    on loved ones left behind. Yet there are still memories
    to cherish. Loved this. (Report) Reply

    This is a masterpiece. I had a tear in my eye reading this Valerie. My sister died when she was nineteen, we were very close. This poem brought the memories I have of her back, so vividly. Wish I could write this well. (Report) Reply

    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
