    Thank you for teaching me what true love feels like
    the way you'd smile when i'd walk into your view
    every day for the entirety of our relationship
    telling me just how beautiful i am
    serenading me (in french) while you played your guitar
    never making me cry unless they were tears of joy
    until the day i kissed you moments before
    you flew off to grab the hand of our Lord.
    It was april and when i looked out the window
    the sun was shining then it began to snow
    our baby girl on the floor in the hallway
    screaming, "i want my daddy"
    even to this day she and i write love letters to you

    but this must be my last
    for it is time for me to stop loving only memories
    for there is someone who desires my love
    and i must and desire to give him my whole heart
    to cherish him as completely as i can
    for i have placed my love forever in his hands
    his loves so sweet it made me grow wings
    and i must fly my sky alone for the first time without you
    for
    i
    love

    only you precious

    sometimes...it's hard to step away from what was...into the unknown. it's not about letting go as much as moving on. neither is it always necessary to forsake one for the other. often, we cherish the memory of loved ones while loving others. is that a betrayal? i don't think so. we all have a past. it is that past that make us who we are...and who we are that attracts others to us. A LOVING PERSON LOVE THOSE WHO ARE CAPABLE OF GIVING/RETURNING LOVE. our past can confirm or deny that.

    enjoy this moment, yes. treasure your memories, yes. love life, yes.

    the river floweth.

    Dear Brother Poet Baller,

    I hear you and understand EVERY word...trust. I will always love and cherish my late husband's memory but I can't let it remain so prevalent in my heart that I continue to run away from any man who isn't him. If I want to find love I'm going to have to stand still long enough to let someone catch me.

    surely they both do feel you deeply
    one carried you with him while the other remain near holding you within heart
    so they both feel you madly and compassionately
