Can't comment on the poem because poetry isn't my thing. But I will say I lost my mom to brain cancer when I was 9. I cried plenty, so did my dad.
Cry if you need to, it's not weakness. I still cry when I think about what I did in the war but that's a different story.
Don't let someone else's death be the end of your life I guess. We all die. It's not bad or anything, it just is. People can be just as real in
your memories of them as they were when they were alive.
All you can do is honor your ancestors by keeping fresh memories of them in your head. Celebrate their lives!
