About the poem
Firstly,Edna creates here the major theme:time. It is true that we forget about him/her with the passing of time. But it remains forever. Recently i have lost my grandfather. He was very close to me. But i know,he will be in my mind,my heart ever & forever. I have read this poem. I like it.

I first discoverd this poem a few months after my dearly loved husband of 28 years left me for another woman. I had recorded a programme about poetry and there it was. I remember playing and replaying the programme until I had the poem by heart... how sad am I! 8 yaers later I am still lonely and this poem still talks to me. I don't think it's about death as others do, but that's my opinion and if this sonnet sums up how desolate you feel as it does for me then that's good. Would that I had never been able to understand the feelings it conveys!
