I think that your poem hits a soft spot for everyone here!  Walking away, being the survivor is most times the hardest part.  You've done your job yet again Rose!!!

Rosemary,
  This was a strange poem for me to read because they are thoughts I've never had. It was very enlightening, indeed. Well done

This swept me away into your sorrow, Rosemary. I could feel that awful sensation of having to walk when you do not wish to - as Liz said, it is very enlightening.

Rosemary -

As you know from my e-mail ... I have
visited your web site ...
Oh, my .... how lovingly done.
Much there for everyone to go and see.
The formatting of your poetry and Wayne's
is just wonderful.
Thank you for sharing this wonderful site.

I can relate to this, Rosemary, that 'walking away'...there is nothing that takes more courage.

BRAVO!!! *standing to applaud*

You, my friend, are indeed a talented poet and now that I've read this, your compliment to me is indeed treasured! Thank you for writing and posting this poem which has brought chills to my spine! Excellent!


(don't understand your reasoning for the centering and line break-up/formatting, though... perhaps we can talk more via email about writing)
