This is heart rending and I had to bite back tears. An exquisite story of love and friendship. I cannot think of enough adjectives to desscribe how your story made me feel. May the Almighty bless Kevin's soul. He was very lucky to have a friend like you. This story is generous and there is a big bear of fuzziness tickling my belly. It's full of warmth and innocence despite the youthful deviances.It makes me want to hug the next sad person I see. My favourite line from the story was where you refer to yourselves as 'Trippy and Dippy' I laughed out loud. Look forward to reading more! Brilliant story! God bless. :)
Insightful and well balanced. Forgive me for my ignorance but what is the ending relating to? I am not aware of the meaning behind it. So please enlighten me.
I like your style. You summed up different characters and moods in a short piece. :)
You are absolutely right. We will not debate on the right or wrong. We want to help each other achieve that unique near perfect style of writing that can move someone to a point where they cannot wait another second without reviewing your writing! :)
You are a seasoned writer and I could learn a lot from someone like yourself and many others on WDC. I feel blessed to be able share such unique experiences with different individuals. Keep it up! Very moving piece. Not at all preachy with subtle humour. May the Almighty keep us all close to Him and show us the way that leads us straight into His light. Amin.
Thank-you for sharing!Warm wishes. :)
PS: I wrote something to this affect last year on my Facebook account and will be uploading it shortly. Do have a read and see what you think. It is presented through a different angle. Hope you enjoy it!
Beautiful absolutely beautiful. Every word tugged at my heart. I'm reviewing from my phone so unable to go into detail. You poem makes me want to be wanted like the subject. Elegant yet modestly passionate. Charmed Calli. Will read more of yours and perhaps get inspired. Loved your bio block too! :) You are fab!
Hi there. This is very sad and heart warming at the same time. Unfortunately the stigma of single men and children is hard to shake off. Just pray to the Almighty and your good intentions will never go wasted. Trust me. You may not realize it now but every good thought or deed never goes unnoticed. Maybe not by the people who can perhaps make a difference on a larger scale but somewhere, somehow it has made a difference. Don't dwell on the obstacles in your way. Simply carry on believing and doing your best. Your kindness will be rewarded. Without wanting to sound like some holy matron please be rest assured all will be ok.
Many blessings and good wishes.
Oh wow!!Sorry I am new at this so I cannot yet come up with the most eloquent of reviews. However this is beautiful. Simple yet profoundly lyrical. Excellent! I am perhaps a little biased as these issues are close to my heart too. But you expressed yourself beautifully through this poem. Will keep an eye out for you. Please leave reviews for me too. It is a learning curve for all of us albeit at different levels perhaps. :) Good luck and lets all change the world shall we? :)
