Mother’s Day

To my Godmother, I’ve been trying not to think about you all day but somehow your memory is sealed deeply into my soul. And it keeps reappearing each time I try so hard to forget. If I’ve learned one thing from the past 17 years is to stop regretting everything I never had the chance…

We Survived.

We survived the first year of sadness, anger, and despair. The year where the truth crushed us. We survived all the first holidays, memories and birthdays passed without your presence. The year where everything and everyone around us changed overnight. We survived all our “What if’s” and all the firsts, “We wish you were here”. …

Nothing​ Matters

At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if you did all the right things with someone and they wronged you. What matters is that you stood for what you sincerely believed in. And if you’re patient through all the hurt being thrown at you; keeping your heart open would give you a peace…

Love

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. As she assessed the dim chapters of her life she realized everything around her was changing but she graciously allowed herself to shed a few tears….

Journey​ into the light.

The light glows all the time here and it’s unlike any light I’ve ever seen. It’s a calming light that blocks all the crying and the whining each time I gaze into it. The kind of light that reminds me of all the love and happy times I had with my family. I have floated…

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…
