*sobbing* That one really jerked the tears! You're poems are so wonderful!!! Do you have a publisher yet? I'd be the first one to buy your collection, if you don't already have a book published.

Wow! I'm glad this made it back up to the top Balladeer. I had a friend in first grade who was killed in a fire. This poem was sad and yet made me smile too. great work.

Balladeer,
This is just a kick to get you back up there.
I guess that would be superlative enough.

So many words about your poem, but none of them does it justice. I can't, either, so I won't try. I just want to tell you that it really moved me.

Balladeer....I know your poetry moves me too man...Why I frequently have "movements" immediately after reading your stuff....LOL...this was indeed another great piece of work my friend.....You continue to leave me in awe of you talent......and as Carolina said...(and I know her...she's a fox....and a sweetie....and nuthin' could be finer than to be "in" Carolina in the morning..)you really should get a publisher pal!

'Deer

Another great poem. You make it look easy, ya rascal. I enjoy just about everything you write; the only exception being the villifying comments you often pen in error concerning my saintly nature. But, there should be flaws in every person, else why would you strive ever harder?

I wish I could be that little Billy.... Would you like me to say "Hi" to anybody (or thing) else after I pass on? It might help you out when your time has come.

And when you're going over that contract with your publisher, remind them that the first printing needs to be a large one... lots of advance sales here! *G* Wonderful poem!

I would try to say something but my jaw is still on the ground after reading your poem! I loved the subject of this poem because it was sweet; it gave me bitter-sweet warm fuzzies (if that makes any sense at all). But not only that, your rhyming is always just right and your rhythm never falters. Geez, how do you do it?!?! Will someone share with me Balladeer's secret here? I feel left out of something! If anyone finds out, make sure I'm the first to know!

I'm a little embarassed, but thid poem made me cry. Sometimes we lose sight of what is really important. We often forget just how good we've got it.
