Format: Paperback
This book trys to convey what grief is like through metaphors. I'm sorry my wife dieing is not the same as Bob's mother throwing away his old clothes and getting him new ones. Nor is it like drops of water being afraid to go over a water falls. Mr. Vogt turns to religion . I've read most of the book and his wife is not mentioned in it. He calls her"something".

Format: Paperback
After I lost my wife, this book was one of the more helpful ones for me in dealing with my grief. Most books try to tell you how you should feel, or how you should feel ok about feeling. Whatever. This author never claims to have any clue about how the reader might be feeling. He just pours his own emotions onto the page - in poems, metaphors, however he can manage to express himself at the moment. For me, this was much more useful that the more directed help books. My emotions were often different than Robert's, but reading about his struggle made me feel less alone in my own.

Format: Paperback
This book was published about 8 months after my wife died suddenly at age 33. She left me with two little boys, 5 and 2 years old. It was difficult to describe the profound grief that overwhelmed me. There are not very many 34 year old widowers out there with two small children. My minister found this book for me and it was the first time anyone seemed to understand how I felt. The stories and poems resonated with me and helped my grieving and healing process. It's been 16 years since I first read this book and I still think about the reflections often. It has been a blessing in my life.

This book has some nice poems and a lot of metaphorical stories that are just made up, without any factual basis.
