After a loss of a loved one some people tend to have a lot of regret of not spending enough time with that person, hoping they know you love them, and many more reasons why. His regret is evident by describing the raven as “this grim, ungainly, ghastly, gaunt, and ominous bird of yore” (line 70). You can’t do anything with regret. It’s just like an empty hole and you can’t take any good memories from it. In the main character’s case his lovely wife left him widowed and he would stay up till midnight.
As Holden is on a quest to find someone he can truly relate to, he recalls his moments spent with the person he felt most attached to, Jane Gallagher. Holden is sitting in the lobby of his hotel, having failed at connecting with girls in the Lavender Room, and he begins thinking about Jane. He remembers how he “held hands with her all the time” (89) and that she is “terrific to hold hands with” (89). Holden realizes that “Jane was different” (89) because with most girls he felt self-conscious, yet he never felt that way with Jane.

In my opinion, I believe that the poem “Her Long Illness” really painted an image for the readers and made us feel as if we were there at the hospital with him and watching him nervously pacing around, drinking coffee, and reading poetry to his wife while in chemotherapy. He was a dedicated husband there by wife’s side The words throughout the whole book was great works and made us feel what he was using the words weren’t difficult to understand. Hall arouses feelings of sorrow in the readers’ minds by telling us exactly how he felt while his wife was dying and after her death. Hall felt lonely and didn’t know how to live without Jane. In closing, “Without” is a very deep, heartbreaking, and touching book of poems.

I know my mother and I sat for hours in the hospital listening to how content and happy my grandmother sounded and we questioned night after night why was this her time to be fading away from us. We would stay up all night to make sure that nothing would go wrong. We would stay up to ensure that she was as comfortable as she could possibly be. The stress and
“Find your passion and make it happen” - Irene Cara “This one is an easy strikeout bud!” my dad would say. “Ball four! Batter take your walk” the umpire called out. After the game my dad would give me his motivational speech, telling me how much he looks up to me for finding love in the game he loved as a kid.

He talked about all this to Ratanand she always looked up to him.
