I think you would have loved these yellow lights .
Laugh in my mind when I need it,
Love in my life when I feel it,
Whisper in my heart when he speaks it and means it,
And because you taught me how to love without a rewinding grandmother…
She taught me how to smile with my spirit,
She said I could light up the night’s sky and,
She told me to fly and,
She cared for,
Carried me with her every breathing.
And where do I pay for this love ?
How far is the heaven up here ?
‘Think about it, there must be a higher love. Down in the heart and in the stars above. Without it, life is wasted time.’ _James Vincent McMorrow.
But I, I hope you can see how strong I have become and how strong I am becoming.
I am a big girl now, big girls smile with their spirits.
I hear yours in mine.
The birds miss your voice.
The whispers too, mama they were a tune …
