"I was there"

This is the poem that I am thinking about using as Josh's final message to his wife. Comments anyone?
"I was there"

I was there when you needed me
I picked you up and carried you home
  brushing away the tears as we went.

"I'm scared," you whispered
I couldn't help but smile, gently kissing
  the tears away.

"I'll never let you go," I said as
  the light faded from your eyes.

I laid you down, beneath the tree
  in the cold earth, forever more.

  1. It's really good. It has a lot of emotion in it. And it's a different style to a poem. I like how the rules are a lot looser with poetry because it makes everything more creative and unique.
