In the beginning of the short story, as Brother reflects on Doodle’s life, the author uses personification and foreshadowing to create a mood of remorse. As he gazes out of the window into his backyard, Brother states that “the graveyard flowers were blooming. ...speaking softly the names of our dead” (Hurst 1). The flowers provide flashbacks of the past, and foreshadow a loss of life. The loneliness felt by Brother causes readers to consider how they would feel if their loved one was gone.

The personifications of the seasons as stages in the cycle of life and death creates an unsure and uncertain mood. The shift between seasons creates an idea of change and uncertainty of events to come. Hurst creates a mood of remorse through

The two of you pulled away from each other and Scott grabbed ahold of your arm. “Ready?” he asked you. You nodded again and screwed your eyes shut.
A shrill scream escaped his lips, his eyelids fluttering and threatening unconsciousness. It had been going on so long that he didn't even feel the pain anymore, in its place stood an overwhelming feeling of tiredness. There was a final blow and his tense body slumped to the floor. Officer John Parkson woke with a jolt.
I was frightened; I would perspire and tremble when awoken from creepy dreams or from visualizing images in my room. Most nights sleepless, and my daylight hours becoming more challenging to mange, I had become an insomniac and struggling with meaning.
That’s how the weeks after weeks went by in the facility, flowing like a repeating dull song, like a sea minor the wind and wave. Despite the medicine he regularly swallowed three times a day, he doubled his trouble sleeping. Most of the night,
Grace tied a piece of twine into a bow around the daisies and balanced the bouquet carefully, so the flowers would hide the death date on the gravestone. She had purposely left the dash between the life and death dates visible. She wanted to see the tiny etching in which her aunt’s life was supposed to have taken place, not that any one person’s life could be fit into a dash. However, in the whole scheme of things, maybe their lives were just a bunch of dashes.
The softly spoken question was so childlike in its innocence, the tears reflecting brightly in Booker’s dark eyes spilled freely down his cheeks, the tidal release of emotion forcing his sorrow into his throat. “I promise, baby,” he choked. “I

Love You Forever is a classic heart-warming story by Robert Munsch built around a simple, but eternally meaningful commitment from a mother to a child to love him forever.
