This piece really touched me - I have been where the poet is... And, although I understand the writer may have been feeling small when this was composed; I personally, would have used a capital 'I'.

Deeply meaningful drop. Sometimes life gives a shock and you can't take the same path with the one you love. Thanks for sharing.
