women at the wall

There is a strong feeling of sadness that i got after i read this poem. It is sad that the women goes to wherever the name is at, and kisses the name like she is kissing her missed loved one. Also i felt sad reading the poem after she prays to god that he will pull the name out and put the loved one back into her world again like he never left. This poem means something to me because after my uncle died, there was a fight in my family about if we should get a tombstone made for him still even though he was cremated. I see now how important it is for some people to have a place to go to visit a loved one that has passed away.

I agree with your last line, it is definitely important. I also felt the sorrow of this woman, mourning the loss of a loved one.
