YESSSSSS! I love Lang Leav! I screamed at your tags!! ❤
ah! i read a lot of poetry and a lot of quotes and i even write some myself and that poem is just one of the ones that sticks with me, no matter what. it’s always relevant, no matter who you’ve lost or how. there’s an undeniable human element of how Lang captured the human soul and emotions so easily in just simple words and a short few lines. it’s magnificent.
(for a little backstory: the first time i read it was after my father’s death. when it came back around in my life, it was after a really tough breakup with someone i loved. so, when poetry hits you at times like that, i think it makes more of an impact than if it hits you on any normal day or time in your life.)
