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

The End.

Safe haven

She wished she had the power to throw her anger away, she wished her heart wouldn’t shake from the pain. If only she could focus on what should be saved, she’d only save the wonderful things her loved ones had done. She’d save the way they smiled despite their immense pain. She’d save each morning…

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…

Shadows

You’ve been sitting in the coldest room since forever, searching for a reason to hold on.  A life reel flashes across the darkness. Shadows begin coming to life within seconds they turn to images of wonderful memories you’ve had, since you could remember. You try to look away knowing that the pain of the memories…
