My Heart Is Always With You

These past few days have made me sadly reflect much more than I would
like to have. Two dear friends of mine lost their mothers. One dear friend
laid her mother to rest this past week after months of seeing her suffer
while my other dear friend lost her mother last year on the 15th of this month.

To date my life has been spent avoiding deep expression. I have made it a
point to feel as little as possible and to just survive. The overwhelming
sorrow and pain felt by those
so close to me changed that this week.

I wrote this little poem to let them know how I feel so they know my heart is always with them.

If I could draw a picture
of everything I feel,

I somehow would recapture
the images so real.

My heart would be the culprit
to sketch it without fear,

and smear upon a canvas
a picture of a tear.
