this poem gets me everytime i read it. It clearly explains the inuendos of
love and how we are sometimes so caught up in ourselves that we fail to see
the ones who stand before us with the best they have to offer....

This poem reminds me a lot of the relationships that i have been in. He
knows that he has so much to give and she cant see or understand what
exactly it is. The ironic thing though, is that the only thing to give is
himself, but that is an extrodinary gift and if she cant see it then there
is nothing he can do.

This is one of my all time favorite poems, becasue I think that it can be
interpreted to mean so many different things. I see it as a lost
relationship of some sort, or feeling as though someone doesn't know the
real you, and how you feel about them...
