How do we get through something this sudden and awful?


death is a gift

Death is a gift,

reserved for the naughty and the nice.

What’s the rush?

What’s the rush?
You’ll be dead soon.


I don’t believe in last goodbye’s. I’ve come to terms with the loss inside. And today, as I smile and laugh – it’s not that I am not sad. I’ve just accepted ALL that life has to offer.

RIP Anna Mary

You loved me. You didn’t have to. But you did. From when I was born, to me helping you just last week. Mom was gone, and you stepped in. Not because you had to, because you wanted to. Because you were Love. We spent so much time together, and even when I was busy, we got to talk and be together and I will cherish that time forever. Now relax, and tell Pop I said hello.

I love you Nan.

everyone has pain

No one can feel your pain but you.

But that doesn’t mean others don’t feel their own.

Blissful Tide

When I die, cremate me.
Let no one see what isn’t free.

Look inside. I’ll reside
In the blissful tide,
Patiently waiting for you
To dive in too.

heaven inside

I truly believe Heaven and Hell are inside us. It is not a destination outward, but inward. And when I dream, I am able to spend time with loved ones and friends that I have lost. My Grandfather was there last night, and I got to speak with him again; to tell him I love him and he will always be with me.

Look inside yourself. It is not easy to lose someone, and it will never get easier. But they are not forgotten, and they don’t forget you. We will never fully understand our minds in our lifetimes, but what I say is true. Look inside yourself for the path to your heaven. And get some sleep.

dead but not gone

when i close my eyes
and drift into my own mind
the dead greet me there.
