I lost my husband last week. This poem is recorded in a song by Mathilde
Santing (The best of Mathilde Santing / So far so good). I played it at the

I fell in love with this poem fifteen years ago - at about the same time
that the love of my life (then) was leaving me for someone else.
I found comfort in the arms of these words.

What a beautiful poem. Only those who have experienced this kind of love
will understand that it is possible to let go, because you love someone so
much you just want him to be happy, with or without you.

This is one of the all-time greats in love poetry. We all have an
experience like this; a time when a loved one leaves us for another- or
perhaps even the sense of slowly losing them from your life. As they drain
away inevitably like sand in your fists; the tighter you clutch at the last
few vestiges of how it used to be, how it could be- but how many of us can
truly say that like Cummings, we have been willing to give up the love of
our life, 'all happiness', for the sake of another's, without any
resentment? Perhaps this is what love ought to be like, and may yet prove
to be, for us all. We can only hope.

it's like watching the rain through the window, an old song playing on the
back, and feeling sad without knowing why...

a couple months ago i was introduced to this wonderfully expressive poem.
i was 17. i hate the fact that bjork had turned it into sound (hence the
word sound and not music or an expressive form of art). of course this
poem is my all time favorite and never has a poem ever sruck a chord in me

Such an increadibly beautiful poem. No other way to describe it really. I
love how he is able to express his feeling with such a perfect choice of
words. Especially in this poem. But i love this one the most. The fact that
he can still give his blessing to something that in turn is hurting him,
but not forgetting the sourness of the situation right at the end when he
hears a "bird sing terribly" to sum up his thoughts. Bjork has also done a
wonderful job of turning this into sound. I absolutely love it!
