    I think this is perfect. That, to me, is exactly what a poem should do....let me see from your eyes, hear what you heard, feel what you felt. I really like this Michael. I think it says alot with so few words. Sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply

    Brilliant Micheal! ! Can't believe you managed to sum it all up so neatly, no perfectly! I love it Moyaxx and I felt it! (Report) Reply

    I never thought of it in that sense Michael. This is a great tribute summing up all that needs to be said, without hyperbole and with great economy. (Report) Reply
