Every single day is a gift from God. Have you noticed that it always takes a loved one to pass away for people to appreciate one another? Every minute counts. Every second counts. I won’t say that life is too … Continue reading
I wrote this poem for some really close family members who lost someone dear and close to their hearts!!!!
In one snap of a finger, my life was never the same.
You were here and then you were gone.
Never again will I be able to see your radiant smile.
Or feel the warmth of your touch.
Or watch your hair shine in the sun.
Life can bring us though roller coasters, but this is a rollercoaster I never asked to get on.
How can I get off of it?
What am I supposed to do now?
How can I possibly go on with my life without you here?
You taught me everything I know.
Who will I talk to now, every day?
How can my heart ever beat the same?
A big part of my heart has been ripped.
And quite frankly, I just want to stay like this for now.
I don’t want people to try to fix it or pity me.
I just want to stay in my remorse and feel pain.
Will you return if I do that?
(Sigh) who am I kidding?
You’re gone and I didn’t have one last chance to just hug you or kiss your beautiful cheeks.
I was not there.
God, please strengthen me.
Because you’re all I have now.
Can you believe this???
I’m shocked! They have so much pride…it’s sad!
She was indeed chosen,
chosen to live.
she never understood why though.
Her mother was shot in front of her,
her sister raped before her eyes.
She was supposed to die, she believed.
Why didn’t they kill her instead?
The next day, she awoke with her sister dead in her arms.
Her sister left behind her children and her husband.
Her mother left behind her father.
But she was still alive…
She was chosen
chosen to love.
