The Art of Missing You

All it takes is a tangent tale

down memory lane

and the mind forgets

the carefully crafted conversations

and the ‘to-do’ lists of life

It creates master pieces of your smile in the skies

peeks through the branches at the sun

scattered, distracted and holding on to the pieces of you…

consumed in this art of missing 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.

waiting with the deep blue ocean,

as the wind blows by, 

I hug you in my heart…

hoping, my hand will reach your soul.

Meaning

In the quiet hum of spring breeze

you drifted in between the branches of faded memories

like distant dreams of another time

they made you smile…

finding meaning in life.

Today I realized,

I miss handwriting my thoughts…

The slanted “A” and the fancy “I”s,

the way my hand gripped the pen,

the smudge of ink on the side of my left hand,

as it moved left to right on the piece of paper,

a silent meditation,

without a thousand windows open in front of your eyes,

Today I realized,

I miss handwriting my thoughts

Tatttered

Tattered pages

of forgotten musings

drift

like clouds

in the mind

pulling on the heartstrings.

Dust of Childhood

I trace with my finger,

the dust that settled with time,

over these old pages of mine,

as I remember,

my once favourite book,

with fond memories,

of childhood,

as I reminiscence,

with this dust of childhood.

cool fall

My Home In the Stars

I will carry my home with me,

in the stars I see every night…

 

For they hold the stories,

my grandma told me,

the walks on the beach,

with the family,

and the moment,

when my heart,

first took flight.

 

I will carry my home with me,

in the stars I see every night…

 

For when I lose sight,

of where I am,

they comfort me,

like they comforted my ancestors,

eons before I was born,

guiding them with light.

 

I will carry my home with me,

in the stars I see every night…

 

For their infinite beauty,

keeps me grounded,

no matter how high I fly,

reminding me who I am,

and where I come from,

as I sail across the sky.

 

I will carry my home with me,

in the stars I see every night.
