Weekend Of Memories

WEEKEND OF MEMORIES
(a shadorma)

It has been
five years since building
those special
memories
with you. Little did I know
they would be our last.

Dedicated to my dad. I’m so grateful for the time we had that last Memorial Day Weekend together…he died a week later and his memory lives inside of me.

Bury Your Head

An extended PiKu to close out PAD 2015,  30 days, 30 poems…
and my 1,000th poetry post!

 

BURY YOUR HEAD

in my chest
‘til
your tears subside.
Let
the pain slowly fade
away with each breath, each exhaled sigh.
Bury
your head in my chest, ‘til
you feel the safety
of my arms’
embrace. Let the pain
fade away with each tear-filled goodbye.
