|Ashes to ashes, dust to dust...but the Creator knows every detail of them and has promised resurrection to paradise here on earth and without disease or defect...perfection as it was in the beginning. That is what we can look forward to for our loved ones, Christine. This is a beautiful poem of the love they shared here. We only need to be there when they are awakened and need explanation.|

|I think that this is one of your most expressive poems, Christine. Such a well-balanced composition and effortless strength. Some of my favorite lines: "Feel her formless spirit flesh again", "She his quiet dust counterpart"... Very moving.

|When two such as your Mom and Dad share such a wonderful lifetime of memories the beauty of it is that those memories are first bequeathed to each other and then become the property of their children when they leave this earth. To have such a blessing as two parents who loved us is truly a gift from God. \fee|

|This is at once so logical and concrete in its discussion and yet, as flesh and spirit dance and merge, so beautifully ethereal as you take us to your transcendent last line, Christine. Question and answer are both fully realised in just 15 elegant and gracious lines that epitomise the heart and soul of both lover and beloved. Exquisite and moving. Bless you, Kate xx|

An outstanding tribute to mom. Your poetic song also transends how much love surrounds your family. This love is indeed a mystery as it is so strong and powerful but cannot be seen and is as omni present as our Father in Heaven. Treasure times with your dad now. He will take time to mend but time is the great healer. Surround him with love, music and poetry. You have a special gift that is rare. You easrned the number #1 position on the AD's romanic poetry for now. But you will always be among one of my my favorte poets on the den because you truly have heart of gold and a love for life itself.
Much love and blessings to you and your family,

|Tributes can often be quicksand for the writer
but you, Christine, handle this with the right amount
of emphasis and tenderness
and such understanding of loss and love.
It's a beautiful poem, beautiful.

|Lovely, lovely words, Christine. When the reality of one's life isn't what one may wish, hopefully our dreams will return us to that which we want or love. Except for the sadness upon waking.

|Christine, such a beautiful sentimental poem about two people who obviously were in love. You look like your mom in this picture..
I love the sensitivity in this poem. Your dad will be fine, he seems like a strong person.
We can never understand the "why" let alone the Because..
Much peace, love and light,

Their lamps lit, each for the other
She his quiet dust counterpart
Now resting in his immortal depths"
