    I've first saw, or read, this poem in the movie 4 weddings and a funeral, and i've became completely devoted to him. I can't choose better words to explain such pain, such love like thoose wrtitten in this poem. In my humble opinion this is one of the best poems ever written. (Report) Reply

    This poem is so powerful-it is simple and eloquent, and it expresses the depths of grief in a way anyone can understand and relate to. (Report) Reply
