In the quiet moments of night
Under a moon that knows all secrets
My heart cries tears that fall to the ground
And grow with the intensity of the tide
Pulsing with pain
In the light of day
They swell with the to and fro
the push and pull
the love and regret
the dichotomy of peace and torture…
Remnants of a broken heart
I lost a dear friend this week.
My heart feels so sad that I will never see her again. The very last time I saw her she looked so beautiful. I pulled up behind her in my car and I whistled, “WhootWhoo.” She turned around with the biggest smile, one I had not seen in a while. I said, “You look so beautiful!” She blushed, curtsied (as best she could) and said, “Thank you!”
She had many health issues and experienced physical pain daily. There is a piece of me that feels happy she is out of pain and that she has reunited with her wonderful husband in heaven. But then there is a piece of me that feels so very sad because I will never see her again. 🙁
The one thing it makes me realize is that we never know when BIG changes will happen in our lives. We need to live life with an awareness; we need to be in every moment. And if there are people who mean a lot to us we need to do all that we can do to help them, and for sure we need to tell them that we love them every day.
You all mean a lot to me <3 Thank you for your love and support!
