The 31rst is the day I love the most

For I turn 16 on this eerie day

Pumpkins littered around the yard

I was falling, falling

In a random train of thought,

If you can hear the thunder

Of my heart as I hold you tightly Continue reading “A Poem For Mommy”



March eleventh, twenty seventeen

That was when you left me

Your hugs, your smile, your laugh as well

Why didn’t you tell us you weren’t well?

I’m trying hard not to cry

But I hope you’re happy, up in the sky
