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…

Sixteen years ago, my late aunt booked concert tickets for our favorite singer. She let me guess for weeks what the surprise was, and the magic surrounding this event was beautiful.

Embrace

Sometimes there is this deep sadness which plants its roots in your heart and it can be suffocating at times. One of the ways to release it is to whisper gentle words of kindness and understanding. Love it with all your heart and embrace it, because it’s a part of you now. Zeina A.G

Blank Page

She graciously allowed her memories to float back to her.  She allowed them to settle and noticed her fears go through her like bullets, leaving darkness in their gaps.
