Good show of empathy and understanding. Empathy without thinking you know exactly the feelings of the person is better illustrated in your poem. Should be a good entry for the contest. Best of luck in the voting booths.

A very good sonnet. I think you should have a very good shot at this contest. The iambic pentameter is great. Just a few fluctuations but nothing too worrisome Possibly re look at the line with 'healing' I thing the stress is inverted there. Otherwise, great poem!

Nice Shakespearean sonnet form. Good set up, strong volta, and a good closing couplet. The image works very well. Cheers - DJ

You certainly, vividly express empathy and grief in this sonnet. Your addition of rhyme and repeat of the title add to the intensity of the message. Best wishes in the contest- Joan

I thought your poem expressed empathy for the grief of another human being and it showed that another person can't take away all of the misery in another persons life until they are ready. You are always ready to support and lend a shoulder to cry on when needed. I liked your rhyming and the flow of the poem.
