What a story. Was there more than time being her greatest teacher or was there a million other reasons...your poem is very expressive that it make you wonder. Good job!

Wow, this is practically a whole novel crammed into a poem. I was kind of shocked at how quickly it progressed. I found one little typo in the third stanza: you wrote "there was so spell" instead of (presumably) "no spell." Which, incidentally, was a line I really liked because of the subtle use of rhyme and enjambment.

The whole idea behind the poem-that love lives on after death-was a little too romantic for my tastes. I found it a little trite. You managed to improve this for me by beautiful lines like "Quicker than raindrops, her fears/ fell away" and I would consider giving this sort of line a little more attention and spotlight in the poem. Overall, a very good poem.

sorue, love is in actions, not matter if sometimes it's hard to understand :) the end is sad.
