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!

Edge of the Sea

Drifting at the edge of the sea,

your heart swayed with the waves

that crashed in the caves, of the mind

in the memories that you would often rewind

when you lay with the open skies

tracing smiles on the clouds

of the faces your heart found

and loved…

drifting at the edge of the sea,

your heart swayed with the waves.

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.

Sway

Drifting at the edge of the sea,

your heart swayed with the waves

that crashed in the caves, of the mind

in the memories that you would often rewind

when you lay with the open skies

tracing smiles on the clouds

of the faces your heart found

and loved…

drifting at the edge of the sea,

your heart swayed with the waves.

Calm Night Across The River

Calm night across the river,

That’s hard to see in the middle of day.

Calm night across the river,

Where there is no farmer to make hay.

Calm night across the river,

Where large waves slowly capsize.

Calm night across the river,

Where moon lights brightly every night.

It’s the place where the trees dance,

Giving off a gentle breeze,

It’s where we all rest when we hand in our day’s keys.

Calm night across the river,

It’s the place I see in my dreams.
