wow, the way you write is really excellent, i couldn't stop reading this for two reasons

1) I'm interested in world war 2 and loads of historical things like titanic.

Tom, I have read this before, thanks to your graciousness, but as I read it again, my eyes tear up once more as I remember what you describe here in words so elegently arranged.

Hi,

Thank you for taking the time to read the poem. It was years after the actual visit (yes, it is autobiographical)

Even though years have passed since I wrote the poem, it still haunts when I read it.

Thank you,

Tom
