Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
I was devastated

My life changed suddenly

by jenintorre

I felt young and bold

Then my friend suddenly died

At once I turned old

...... My original poem ......

No more dancing

My very best friend was just like me,
a dedicated dancer
but I will never dance again
since I lost my friend to cancer.
