My Braden


My youngest son fell "asleep" on September 21, 2014 
I love him forever with all of my heart and soul



"There are Things in Life we don't want to Happen,
But have to Accept;
Things we Don't want to Know, But have to Learn;
People we Cannot Live without, But have to Let Go."

I came across a picture,
Of you and I today.
The tears just started falling,
But, I couldn't turn away.

I closed my eyes and I was there,
That day so long ago.
I saw your eyes still shining bright,
Alive and so aglow.

I'd swear I heard your laughter,
As I gazed upon your face,
A golden and contagious sound,
That nothing can replace.

It brought back many memories,
Of how things used to be.
Each picture's now a time machine,
That brings you back to me.

~ Out of the Ashes









 
"I wait and ache." -Sylvia Plath 


 
no help for that
there is a place in the heart that
will never be filled

a space

and even during
the best moments
and the greatest times

we will know it
we will know it
more than
ever
 
there is a place in the heart that
will never be filled
and
we will wait
and wait

in that
space.










you have played,
 (i think) 
and broke the toys you were fondest of,
and are a little tired now;
tired of things that break, and -
just tired.
so am I.

~ e e cummings

Sweet Old World Video

   

See what you lost when you left this world
This sweet old world
What you lost when you left this world
This sweet old world
The breath from your own lips, the touch of fingertips
A sweet and tender kiss
The sound of a midnight train, wearing someone's ring
Someone calling your name
Somebody so warm cradled in your arm
Didn't you think you were worth anything

See what you lost when you left this world
This sweet old world
What you lost when you left this world
This sweet old world
Millions of us in love, promises made good
Your own flesh and blood
Looking for some truth, dancing with no shoes
The beat, the rhythm, the blues
The pounding of your heart's drum together with another one
Didn't you think anyone loved you

See what you lost when you left this world
This sweet old world
What you lost when you left this world
This sweet old world
See what you lost when you left this world
This sweet old world
What you lost when you left this world
This sweet old world

~ EmmyLou Harris

 In the rising of the sun and its going down 
We Remember Them.

In the bowing of the wind and in the chill of winter - We Remember Them.
In the opening of the buds and in the rebirth of spring - We Remember Them.
In the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of summer -We Remember Them.
In the rustling of the leaves and in the beauty of autumn - We Remember Them.

In the beginning of the year and when it ends - We Remember Them.
When we are weary and in need of strength - We Remember Them.
When we are lost and sick of heart - We Remember Them.
When we have joys and celebrations to share - We Remember Them.

As long as we live, they too shall live, for they are part of us.
We Remember Them.
