Hello Kim, I was so sad to read this. The loving portraits you paint of your children are wonderful, but the death of one eclipses much of the joy of the others. A really emotional read and I hope you are ok.

Your words and the imagery are so very powerful, my eyes are swimming in tears and my heart aches for you, for the emotions you must have gone through to put these words on paper and to share them with the world. This is heartbreaking and breathtakingly beautiful.

Kim, my heart breaks reading this poem. Only those who have lost children can truly know the depths of this pain. I can only hope this is not true for you. And if it is, we can talk. ;(
