JUDGE COMMENTS: "Short, simple, but so emotive! This poem hits right at the heart and draws the reader into the agony of a lost love, or loved one. No long diatribe of words but just raw emotion. It impacts the mind and heart with its poignancy and loss. Rhythm is smooth and the poet manages not only to share the pain of that loss but also to draw the reader into it. Congratulations to the poet. A powerful read."
