Guidance

Whether we feel blessed or cursed,Our angels are always near,Whispering to us in our most obscure moments,Lifting us up and guiding us through each step.©ZeinaA.G

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…

The Leather Jacket.

In 2003, shortly after my late aunt passed away my grandmother handed me a jacket and said, “It’s a gift.” Completely baffled I asked, “But how?” I immediately knew it was from my aunt because she had an identical jacket and always wanted us to match. Before she passed away sometimes we’d match without even…

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…

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…

The Prayer.

Moments before I close my eyes I think of you,And the beautiful memories we share. I know you’ve felt like a caged bird for so long,And now that you’re flying away,I often fear that you’ll stray too far,And forget who you truly are. When tears are about to flow from my eyes,I recite a prayer…

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…

It’s time.

It seems that wherever I go and whatever I do life keeps showing me that it’s time for us to soar in separate directions. It’s time to move forward and to let go. It’s time for a change and to think of new steps ahead. Even though we may travel in opposite directions our cherishable…

Just Keep Moving

The road ahead may get troubled, but she was okay with it. She was aware that the waves may somehow drown her, but she was still okay with it. Memories may tug at her heart and overwhelm her with sadness. The shores may be empty and she may walk them without her loved ones. It…

Crossroads.

There are so many things in this world you can’t comprehend. You go through so many failed detours in life and it makes you feel damaged multiple times. The damaged layers are so hollow that you begin to wonder if there is a limit to the amount of ache, your heart could endure. You would…
