I remember what it felt like To laugh with you To watch your face turn red laughing so hard You couldn’t breathe I remember laughing with you All my muscles go weak falling to the floor You just got me Conversations with you Were like portals into my own mind The sincerity of our confidence...

My hands are your hands In the daintiness that they lay In the chubbiness that our fingers sit In the thickness that our nails grow Your hands are my hands In the way that you snap your fingers as you dance And flip your long hair And twirl your rings My hands are your hands ... Continue Reading →
Dear Mother, There are so many things that I still wanted to do with you. We always talked about more dances together. We have gone out dancing together twice in our lives. I thought we had so many more late nights left to go. We joked about loving dancing so much, we would go out,... Continue Reading →
After losing my mom, I was flooded with messages from friends and family sending their love and condolences. I found myself finding solace in talking about what happened. In random conversation, I would start to talk about my loss, to anyone close enough to listen. Coworkers in the break room, friends on social media, any... Continue Reading →
I love that I think of you In the moments that I am the most myself In the moments that I am the most bare In the moments that I am just me You pop into my mind I love that I think of you In the moments that I am so passionate When I... Continue Reading →

"she was my best friend, nobody knew me down to the depths of my soul like she did and no one knew her as much as I did. If she came to visit me after death, I would know. If she wanted me to know something, she would find a way to tell me. If she wanted to be near me, I would feel her. There is no possible way that her spirit could be near me without me knowing."
Forgive me LORD I do not think I have truly prayed to you Since the day that you took her home It is not for lack of love It is not for lack of want It is not for gain of hatred It is not for gain of loss Maybe I am not... Continue Reading →
Maybe I'll take a page out of your story mother It was beautiful when you played it out in my head Green backdrop Sun shining The smell of pine Or maybe forest The smell of bark Aroma of nature Because you were a wild woman That wanted to be set free Surrounded by... Continue Reading →
