thoughts from my mind to yours

Words we don’t say

And though days go by
without a single mention of your name
you are there…
in words we don’t say…
at the grocery store
when our feet takes us to the pet isle
as if it has forgotten its way,
just to remember this squeaky dog toy
will no longer be yours;
when we miss
our best greeter
to love us with slobbery kisses and barks…
when we close our eyes
and hold on to the memories a little tighter
for they alone heal
this heavy feeling in our hearts.

You are there, everywhere…
for the love we hold
goes beyond the distance we share…
and you my dear Oreo are loved
in earth or in heaven…
Happy Birthday!

This would have been Oreo’s 15th Birthday. We all miss him very much, this is the first birthday he celebrates in heaven and we send him eternal kisses and hugs. We love you!

Rain

In quiet nights

when the heart rains…

with cloud of grief,

we know as pain…

silently falling,

against the mind…

and no space,

is enough to hide…

you know,

cause you have tried…

so you just lie,

under the moon,

and drift with the tune,

of the melancholic heart,

as it rains.

Dates

Sometimes I remember
Remember the walks at dawn
Dawns with the colorful sunrise
Sunrise that stretched across the skies
Skies that remind me of you
You who only exist in memories
Memories that linger in the mind
Mind that hides thoughts
thoughts of you…
you visit me on dates
Dates that don’t seem to leave
leave like you
You have been gone for so long
Long stories fall short to describe the ways
ways you laughed, ways you spoke, ways you taught
Taught me about big things and little things
Things that matter,
matter like love,
love I hold for you that go past these dates
Dates that I remember
Remembering you.

Enchanted Rain

So many memories,

fall like enchanted rain,

of another time, another place…

When you held my hand, and hugged me,

cupped my little face, in your palms…

and now as I stare at the clear skies,

waiting with the deep blue ocean,

as the wind blows by, 

I hug you in my heart…

hoping, my hand will reach your soul.
