Praise for this book

"Could I Have This Dance Forever? is a collection of poetry that tackles the subjects of love, loss, joy, sadness, death, and hope. Even though the poems feel autobiographical, the author creates a connection with the reader that resonates with each poem and builds to a climax of hope in the final stanza of the book. I highly recommend this to everyone who enjoys heartfelt poetry and life."
