A Poem for February
its still icey there
Its nice and warm here
We are in the middle of time
Next month brings such promise of rebirth and renewal
I stand in excitement until then
But I need to enjoy February
For what it is
The shortest month of the year
Black History Month
My sisters birthday month
And treat it with respect
Each day that arrives.
Hello New year
This is what i want.
Lots of laughs
And not at my expense.
Lots of tears
Not because another person I love has left this earth.
Lots of wealth
In Friendships, and relationships, and familyships
Lots of good health
I would love to lose weight naturally but I will take what i can get
Lots of travel
And that can mean around to new places in Southern California
Lots of good will
I want done to me that I do to others
I want kindness, support, love, compassion, strength, courage, confidence, consistency, conflict, challenges, growth and lots of laughs.
You hear me
Lots of laughs.
Give me some funny stuff
Happy New Year, New Year
May we have a good, healthy relationship this Year!
it really hurts
i can feel you…everywhere
i wish i could see you…anywhere
I went to the store to buy you a Christmas card
Isn’t that crazy. You’ve been dead for a minute now.
I went to the store and I saw all the things you would like.
I cried at a CD of Chaka Khan. I cried at a book for Top Chef. I cried a cute sweater vest in your size.
emotions are swirling all through my head. they are drowning me.
I’m trying to come up for air
I knew this would happen but i was not prepared for it…fully
I remember all the good years we had to together. All the Christmas holidays.
then i smile again.
I still have people HERE that i need to give attention to
I still have people here to celebrate the holiday with.
I still have people here at Christmas..and some of them miss you too.
We can miss you together. The survivors.
We can love you together.
I want to be someone who is missed when i am gone.
I have to remember whether i am missing them or being with who’s left
Love is filling the room.
Love is filling my heart
Love is lighting my Christmas.
