Bishop started to lose her peacefulness.
In theending lines, the author tried to reassure herself that the loss of love willnot cause her to lose her power over herself.

And all the rhymes and repetition show that the speaker isin conflict with herself about accepting things that she wrote. Everythingcomes to one point, and that point indicates that losses are tragedies regardlessof how much a person is ready for them. The
