I Feel It.♥

A few weeks before you left us some kind of weird sensation came over me.I felt sorry for all the grief you’ve gone through in your life. But I also felt your strength,And it was the kind of strength that I knew its source,Unconditional love. Now it’s been weeks since you’ve left us,We miss you,And…

Thank You For Being Strong

Sadness clouded her heart as she stood in church waiting for the service to end.The thought of every conversation ending up as memory made her soul ache. The thought of that moment being the last goodbye made tears stream down her face.After her tears dried she approached the coffin,And all she could quietly whisper was,…

That’s Love.

When we’re young the whole world seems safer. It’s more beautiful and majestic because of the older people around us who are there to guide us. They remember the best memories of us from before we could even talk…That’s the unconditional love of family.Sadly, as we enter adulthood these people depart. Many have left my…

Where Angels Meet

I hope you’re at peace,And floating freely,In a place where sky’s the limit. I hope you know that we will never forget you,And your generous heart. I hope you’ve gathered all the love you’ve accumulated from this lifetime,And taken it to the place where angels meet. Dedicated to my mum’s uncle ♥ R.I.P Uncle Saleem.©ZeinaA.G

Things that lurk beneath the surface.

I find it quite fascinating what hides between our words, our concerns…What lurks beneath the surface of that mask we wear everyday…Is it fear, kindness, hatred, a certain grudge, grief or despair? Are we just passing time trying not to miss the people who have left us? Are we all just trying to survive the…

Birthday in Heaven.

After all these years it’s still hard to write about this but I know my heart and soul is affected by this deep grief right around this time each year for a reason. It’s my late aunt’s birthday month, the first person who provided a safe place for me to dream big and my first…

Walk Away.

How can I find myself if my emotions are too much for you and you’re talking to me just to be judgmental?How can I find myself if you’re in my life just waiting for me to fall?How can I find my self worth if you’re always putting me down?If my grieving heart is too much…

Three Years in Heaven.

Some may think we said our goodbyes three years ago and that was it … But in my eyes the life we knew suddenly stopped. It wasn’t just one wave of change that hit us and that was it. It was more like several waves that erased all the traces of the life we’d been…

Love

To the memory of my loved ones in heaven.♥ I understand how hard it is to search for love when grief is eating your heart away piece by piece. However, Love has no limits, the deeper you feel it the harder it is to lose. You can find it in the dark corners, beneath the…

Melody

His eyes concealed a million words that I wished I knew half of them. Most were never said, while others came out pure and loving. His voice rose like a gentle melody, it was often misheard as he mimed most of his words. Despite his absence, his soul glows on my dim path. I can…
