becoming

was

returning to

and embracing

the places

i never

wanted to

go back

 

 

my childhood

torn into

the dual lives

of rosy sunshine

and the darkest

feels of ghosts

 

 

my late husband
Patrick and my
shattered home

built brick by brick

grounded deep

to our beautiful life

 

 

         Surrender

 

 

to what had happened

and

what hadn’t happened

in the rubble of

all my wishes

Miracle  


knownness

of my self

sat at the center

quietly

 

i am not proud

nor afraid

just to be

 

filled with 

love
