Well written. The wheel of life is continously turning and what goes down always comes up again eventually.

Well, it seems I am the only lucky one to catch this poem yet, but I am sure anyone who reads it will love it. This would make an excellent Halloween poem for a childrens magazine. Your rhyme is impeccable and there is no forced feelings or dragging of the story for the sake of rhyme. Excellent.

On first reading, the poem is a treasure of memories. Once you reveal that it also speaks of Alzheimer's, the imagery becomes poignant and bitter-sweet. I admire the writing and the rhythms of the poem, and the picture is perfect with it.

Such a wonderful imagination you bring to your poetry. you certainly are good at descriptive things. Words must come easily to you. For me, they come slowly but surely, but mine are so simple towards yours.

"WOW!!!???!!! This could be interpreted in so many ways, given the readers' thoughts and most importantly their experiences!!! That's what makes this such an intriguing work of art...free from death? Free from misery? Free from criticism? Free from anything anyone wants!!! That's the beauty of it...you leave this idea open to us. Although your ideas expressed are yours only, thank you for letting the rest of us fill in our blanks." (Comment courtesy of reviewer Jack*** 29)
