Death has been placed in perspective as only one aspect of life and memories and friendship enable people to transcend death. The poetic voice acknowledges the true value of friendship. There are images of change such as Harwood as a child, carefree and confident to a middle aged person with an aging body — “when our bones begin to wear
She lived her life caring and loving her every desire. A life lived by her heart. Her passing has left this void in my life. I still sit and think about this day when I received this call, thought it was the usual greeting call from my sister and mother, not knowing it was the sad news of granny’s passing.

The poem Love in Place by Nikki Giovanni (Barnet, Burto, & Cain, 2011) is a look back at a person’s past, critically contemplating whether she ever did fall in love. Looking at the overall poem the theme appears to ask the question as to whether or not love really was a part of her life. Love can be so subjective even to the same person. For example, even in this short poem Nikki seemingly crosses over generations looking back over old photographs. Her thoughts and feelings seem to contradict at times almost as if she is losing her memory.

“Absence” by Elizabeth Jennings is a heartbreaking, romantic and very personal poem, in which the speaker is talking directly to someone she misses terribly. She effectively communicates how her emotions were running wild when returning to a place where she had previously met with a lost loved one. Jennings describes how the place she visits has been left unchanged, despite her tragic loss, which it is shown throughout the poem to have left her emotionally shaken and feeling depressed. Absence is a three verse poem, each verse consisting of a clear 5 line structure in which Jennings makes the first, third and fifth lines rhyme in each stanza also the second and fourth line. Jennings generally uses soft, gentle language particularly in the first two stanzas of Absence, but this changes in the final stanza.
