This is a beautiful, touching, and heartfelt poem, one of her better in my
oppinion. I have to agree with Laura in the meaning, and also must state
that if you are someone who doesn't appreciate poetry and the analysis then
it would be a much smarter usage of your time to spend it somewhere other
than a poetry commentary; you only have one life, after all.

this poem is about the loss of love and how the little things they leave
behind is what is remembered. these small tokens help the people left
behind remember those gone.

This poem is great! It basically says that when people die we remember them
in thier personal objects or in things they gave us. Awsome the way she put
it though.
