Happy Birthday

Hey,

I know you thought I always forgot your birthday because I was not always the first one to wish you…But the truth is…I never forgot it just liked to bug you :).

If you are looking down on me, know that I miss you and love you and hope to celebrate with you when we see each other again.

Until then I hold you in my heart and celebrate your birthday in silence.

sending lots of love your way.

Miss you my friend…

I Want To

By Jacquelyn Upton

I want to write about how you make me feel
How every time I see your face I know that you’re real
I can’t describe the feeling you always raise in me
I can’t describe this wash of happiness that you seem to bring
But I want to write about it, I want to write about you

I want to write about that day we shared
How every time you would laugh it would linger in the air
I can’t describe the loving look in your eyes
I can’t describe the reason why you won’t say, “Goodbye”.
But I want to write about it, I want to write about you

I want to write about all our memories, all our stories, and adventures
How we conquered them together
But I can’t describe the paths we took
I can’t describe the sense of security I felt in that one look
But I want to; I want to write about you

I want to write about us
How everything felt was true love not lust
But I can’t describe anything without you
I can’t describe all our hopes and dreams
How everything that was so perfect left in a fleet of screams

I want to write
But I can’t explain how our plans got so disarrayed
How God just had to take you away
I can’t describe this sudden feeling I have to be by your side
How even through death I have to hide all that I feel inside

I want to write, but I forget how to describe what is meant
I want to write about you but I can’t
I can’t describe the feeling of lost, the feeling of what it all cost
Or of the silent screams, the lovely dreams with just you and me
But I want to-

Forbidding Mourning – A Poem by John Donne

A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning

By John Donne

As virtuous men pass mildly away,
   And whisper to their souls to go,
Whilst some of their sad friends do say
   The breath goes now, and some say, No:
So let us melt, and make no noise,
   No tear-floods, nor sigh-tempests move;
‘Twere profanation of our joys
   To tell the laity our love.
Moving of th’ earth brings harms and fears,
   Men reckon what it did, and meant;
But trepidation of the spheres,
   Though greater far, is innocent.
Dull sublunary lovers’ love
   (Whose soul is sense) cannot admit
Absence, because it doth remove
   Those things which elemented it.
But we by a love so much refined,
   That our selves know not what it is,
Inter-assured of the mind,
   Care less, eyes, lips, and hands to miss.
Our two souls therefore, which are one,
   Though I must go, endure not yet
A breach, but an expansion,
   Like gold to airy thinness beat.
If they be two, they are two so
   As stiff twin compasses are two;
Thy soul, the fixed foot, makes no show
   To move, but doth, if the other do.
And though it in the center sit,
   Yet when the other far doth roam,
It leans and hearkens after it,
   And grows erect, as that comes home.
Such wilt thou be to me, who must,
   Like th’ other foot, obliquely run;
Thy firmness makes my circle just,
   And makes me end where I begun.
