How a memory becomes a treasure? ~Old Post~

Hey,I was looking through my old word documents and found something I wrote in 2005.(I was 18. My cousins were 5 and 7 years old.) It was published in a local magazine back then. If I find it I’ll share here.It’s dedicated to my late aunt and her wonderful, brave kids. ♥ How a memory…

Heaven Owns My Heart

Sadly, another beautiful soul has left our family.Despite the pain, anguish and anger we’ll remember all the love you shared with all of us. Despite the fact that nothing will ever be the same again, I’m reassured that by now, “Heaven owns my heart.” Rest in peace Aunt Julia, I hope you’re at peace now….

An Open Heart♥

Something bad happens and it hurts. It changes you into someone new. Your emotions become tangled up and it can get confusing. So you burn all your bridges thinking you’ve already learned all the lessons life has to offer. You instantly build these huge walls around you for protection, before it happens all over again….

Are We Ever Prepared?

Are we ever prepared for the toughest goodbyes?To feel as if a chunk of ourselves has departed,And that our hearts will never be the same. Are we ever prepared for the masks?That fall off people’s faces when least expected. Are we ever prepared to face the things that haunt us?To mourn the pieces of ourselves…

Choices

You’ll Remain.

You’ll remain in a place that nobody could access,In an emotion that nobody could understand. I hope you’ve found peace despite the complicated love you gave,And your strange ways of showing you cared. You’ll remain in the hearts of everyone who ever knew you,In a memory that nobody could erase. You‘ll remain in my words,In…

A Tribute.

Standing in the rain and lightning while gazing at a wall in a strange place. I was wondering how a life could suddenly end. We had passed by to check on our housekeeper who wasn’t answering her phone and the shock we had gotten, from a complete stranger, was that our housekeeper had passed away…

Desperation.

Your absence has left me broken and lost,Desperate to find my shattered pieces,In order to mend them together. But what if I’m not meant to be mended? Desperation makes me rush to find my old confident self,I fear that I’ve lost her forever,And no matter how much I search, I just can’t find her.What if…

Lessons Grief Has Taught Me.

Grief is never consistent, you could be fine for one minute and completely break down the next. For a moment, you could be the shoulder that everyone cries on . You could feel un-stoppable and courageous just for making it through a difficult situation. Then for the next few days you could break down from…

A Message to God.

Hi everyone, My 3rd uncle passed away yesterday and sadly I’m missing his funeral because I’m sick. My head is still in a fog from all this. It’s difficult walking through this path again but writing has been my best friend. 💖 A Message To God. Please be gentle or I’ll break. I’m not asking…
