My Dear, I’m Still Here


My dear, I’m still here.

Breathe. Feel the air. See the clouds.

Sun rays hugging you.

Yes, I’m Almost Back.


Almost back to life.

A grin. Even a few laughs.

Yes, I’m almost back.

A Place We Found Love


Stumbling in the snow.

I follow the sounds of joy.

A place we found love.

Shouldn’t Life Be Fun?


We were once children.

If it’s not a game, why play?

Shouldn’t life be fun?

The Rest Is Bonus


I picked a flower.

It’s all I have at this time.

The rest is bonus.

Can I Get A Connection?


Drafted laws. Too dry.

Can I get a connection?

Made them alive with fiction.

Did you cry when the boy died?

Now do we have a connection?

Keep Going


It was extremely dark when I left. I knew where I was heading, but I was afraid. Then the beautiful moon appeared behind me, lighting up the sky, as if it was telling me to keep going.
