Flying free

I can see you now
Riding your bike in the skies
With a smile, and free.


Rest in Peace

Your pain has vanished.
Nothing will hurt you again.
Rest in peace, my Love.

To My Children

To My Children

I did not birth you,

We don’t share each other’s blood,

But each other’s hearts.



Once my confidant,

My savior and friend.

You took me into the safety

Of your arms, and your love.

But sickness took you,

Consumed you,

And changed you.

Your mind became your enemy

And therefore, so did I.

Moments with You

Moments with You

Each moment with you is cherished

Comforting, warm, and safe.

Laughter flows,

 And peace abounds.

Stolen Moments

Stolen Moments

Precious stolen moments

Never forgotten

Kept locked in my heart




We all have choices to make

Yours was to die.

I‘ve tried to understand,

To not be angry, or question your love.

I hope that you can also

Accept my choice

To Live.



It seems to me

That in Life –

Every step forward

Means two steps back.

Every joy brings more sorrow.

Am I doing something wrong?

Or is this some sort of sick joke,

Brought on by a higher power

That I do not believe in?


My Blessing and my Curse

My Blessing and my Curse

Sitting here, thinking of you

Pain and love mingling,

Until I don’t know where one starts

And the other ends.

So much left unsaid,

So much that never should have been spoken

All wrapped up in one.

This is my legacy

My blessing

And my curse.


I saw you in my dreams last night

You looked just as I remembered you.

Our eyes met –

And with the same leap of my heart as always,

I welcomed you into my arms.

You tried to pull away and said you couldn’t stay –

You had only come to tell me “to be ok”.

I tightened my embrace and begged you not to leave,

If only for a little while.

You nodded, and stayed locked in my embrace,

Supporting me as I cried.

With a final brush of your lips and a bittersweet smile,

You were gone.

And I was again left alone

But for the memory of a dream.
