I saw her again today in her zebra cardigan
Sitting on her porch, eyes focused on a book
Listening to the wind
Feeling the sun
Smile creeping on her lips from time to time
But not enough to reach her eyes
I watched as she drank a sip of tea from her mug
And wiped her lips with the back of her sleeve
She turned the page of the book
And tucked the hair falling on her face
She’s like a wild blooms that they put between the pages
No matter how long I kept her there
I know that she will always be right where I left her
Just like a butterfly trapped in a bottle
Watching her fade and dust inside
She’s like a music box I keep playing every night
Classic like I’ve always known her

Please don’t ever become a stranger whose laugh I could recognize anywhere.

saying goodbye
to someone you love
is like reading the final page
of an amazing book.

as the last chapter ends
you begin to notice
just how beautiful
and perfect
the plot always was.  

you appreciate the joy
and even the pain
as you read and thumb
through every page.

finally understanding
the moral of the story,
you realize you've reached
the end of this journey.

although the last sentence  
is the most difficult to read
another great book awaits
once you turn the final page.

Eventually you may stumble
upon yet another great find.
or maybe you'll return
to the book you left behind.

you may just discover
once all is said and done
that this particular book  
was your favorite story
all along.

A cool breeze
makes me feel free
A cup of coffee or tea
is soothing to me
A lit candle burning
puts me at ease
A walk around the grocery store
the children laughing makes me smile
A cruel world
they know nothing about
I'm still living in the moments
trying to figure it all out
Some days are harder than most
I find strength within
I know I'll be okay ..
Never forgetting to breathe.
One day at a time.
Putting myself back together
Once again.
Self love is the best love.

You’ve got my devotion
but man I can hate you sometimes

Please, be gentle.

My leaves have shriveled and fallen
time and time again now.
So you understand.

Be gentle, please.
