    Love the poem and wonder could it not be written by a woman as well? Because the feeling is universal to both males and females? What do you think? (Report) Reply

    Love this and wonder, couldn't it be a woman waiting just as it could be a man? It tells a story from either perspective to me. what do you think? (Report) Reply

    Love the intensity of this poem. A heart longing for lost love trying to endure its absence.... Wrapped in aches and pains...... Beautiful write. (Report) Reply

    i understand(?) how this poor man is just waiting at his fire for his loved one to enter the door again. what draws me to his story is that he seems very persevering in his patience. he' s loyal. and how often in life does loyal get paired with the unloyal? and for what reason? because lovers are so loving that nothing, even a polar shift in personalities can strip the love of remembering. and these will last forever and are worth all the patience in the world.
