hey traveler. it is a pretty amazing thing to make that connection. It is funny, we talk about making the connections to our lost child and yet it is so difficult to explain and articulate. I have never written a poem before and not since the boy warrior. So in a moment ot inspiration when trying to understand my feelings i simply started writing and this is what came out. it may not be a real poem but it still does it for me.

yes, jas - amazing - and not something that i believed in, hoped for or expected.

and congratulations on such a powerful first effort at poetry - quite apart from the content!

here is a link to a poem i wrote about the younger lee connection:

I read your poem and it touched me and everyone should read it.

Iwas amazed at its title hide and seek. the cover of my book is a boy starting the game of hide and seek.

I have just read your poem again, and realize that the boy warrior that is me is still here. I did not know that before right now, and am crying tears of relief and of recognition. I am still alive. Thank you for your poem. Don
