I See Them

I held onto you as long as I could,And maybe it was my fault for making excuses,For the way that you behaved. I held on because I loved you,I engaged with your immaturity,And your lack of support. When things got tough ,You ran in the opposite direction,And stood on the wrong side,Which hurt me in…

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…

You.

Maybe you were that warm gust of wind,That embraced me on a cold lonely night, Or maybe you were that stranger who smiled sympathetically,When I felt tears stinging my eyes. Maybe you sent me a sign,In a cloud or a sunset. Maybe you were that bird that perched near me,And then flew right after I…

Goosebumps.

While searching through old photos at my grandma’s today I found this photo of my late aunt. It’s the first time I’ve seen it. I think it was taken while she was performing onstage. I love it so much. There’s some kind of power in it that I can’t really explain. So happy I found…

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…

Second Chances

I’ve forced myself to forget how many candles I’ve lit in your favor. Sometimes I wonder if all the prayers and wishes for your well being went to waste. Your struggles were so overwhelming that I wonder if I could pick all the broken pieces you left. Or even glue everything back together, but it’s…

The Song.

When I was barely three years old, there was this special song we used to sing together. I could barely pronounce the words, but it didn’t matter because you helped me sing it. As I grew older, you reminded me of it numerous times and we laughed at the memory. And now there are times…

The Struggle

I’m struggling to learn that you can’t really save the ones you love from making mistakes. You can’t protect them and shield them from life. It terrifies me and shreds my heart into pieces that I can’t prevent a lot from happening. However, I’m certain that I can only show my loved ones unconditional love and…

The End.

I wrote this eight years ago and wanted to share it with all of you. I was writing a series of proses to heal from a loss and I think this was the last one of the series. I just want to send this out there to say whatever you’re going through the heart heals….
