    Very sweet poem, in spite of all those short breaks, your affection endured with good strength. I like the two lines the best.
    And each time I returned to you
    With ever swelling heart.
    relly enjoyed it, thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

    Lovely poem. Very heart warming. In Stanza 5, line 2, did you mean “from places I can’t name: ” Like the way you write the years; especially, five and ten and ten (makes one think) . Don’t know what you mean by the sentence “left me spinning like a top.” (Report) Reply

    The close affection and love of the poet to his family but the limited opportunity to live together seems to be the theme behind the poem and shows the difficulties of a responsible officer who is bound to live away from his home long time on account of his official responsibilities. The poem is written well to understand to a reader in its spirit. (Report) Reply
