Homework Help: Poetry (9th grade)

Posted by Josh on Thursday, January 22, 2009 at 1:24pm.

This is a poem by Alice Walker and a question at the end but I can't figure out the question.

Poem title: "Good Night, Willie Lee, I'll see you in the morning."

Looking down into my father's
dead face
for the last time
my mother said without
tears, without smiles
without regrets
but with civility
"Good night, Willie, Lee I'll see you
in the morning."
And it was then I knew that the healing
of all our wounds
is forgiveness
that permits a promise
of our return
at the end

Question: Consider the death in "Good Night, Willie Lee, I'll see you in the morning." Is any unfinished business here? Explain
