Poem 64

Dear Aya, Here’s another Dear letter: This is a compilation of 5 years and days of fearing of remembering how you changed my life, definitely for the better. If tears could bring you back, I’d cry buckets full to see your smile, to hear you tell me how great of a person you believe me to be. Happy Valentines Day Happy Lunar Year Happy Birthday I wish, I could say this all to you without standing in the center of the field filled with headstones and bouquets of flowers. Do you remember when I used to say you were my role model, my hero even though I was sixteen and you nine. Damn, happy birthday. Curse the world that took you. “If I get to heaven, I know I’ll be alright.” I’ve made it this far because I couldn’t let you go, couldn’t let February pass me by without writing you this letter, without you by my side this new year. The scars that line my heart, you stitch them up with old philosophies and encouraging words that I couldn’t ever forget even if my memories fade. I dare not let it go. Really, Happy Birthday my dear little Aya. Blessed is your new home. &velajune check out: bleu clair belle
