    So good Ben, you’re really grooving with your muse lately πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

    I hope that your poem is not based on a real event but rather “if” it was going to happen.

    It is an excellent reminder of what really matters in life, and how love is the greatest gift.

    Thank you, Benjamin,

    That ending is brillant Benjamin. It made me remember that even if you lose material things it can almost be replaced. However the same can’t be said about people because we can choose to either come back or not at all. Hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday Benjamin!
