I Want To Remember….

I want to remember their little raspy voices and the way they mispronounce words “awdonge” “renember” I want to remember cheek hugs and the soft melding of our faces while dancing around to “The Ants are Marching”, the love we share reaching down to the deepest part of my soul during these dances around ourContinue reading “I Want To Remember….”

It’s Not You. Really! It’s Me…

I’ve been in the process of a nasty break-up with my old self. I have spent most of my life existing somewhere between sad and angry. Don’t get me wrong, I have been happy too.

Once in a Lifetime

Looking back on the memory of
The dance we shared ‘neath the stars above
For a moment all the world was right
