A piece of my heart is missing

Not a melancholy whim

Not a flame that never lit

Not a stolen moment

There is a hole

A missing piece

In my soul

There is a difference

Between love and hope

Love exists in the present

Hope is a sometimes fleeting wish

Floating away

From love.


A Blessing from the Moon


I was thinking

Enjoy, and not lament tonight, its a celebration, make it one

with a smile and ease I know you have, because you have that ease with me

One of the terrible things I’ve lost, is the ability to have a physical presence for some milestones traveled

Like I’ve passed, but I’m alive

I’ll never forget that

But I’ve shed enough tears for now, so I will instead send love, and hope that somehow the universe will deliver it to everyone

Like a blessing from the moon
