Without her…

“She died over 10 years ago but came to me in my dream early this morning…I know you would get it”

I had a cousin once

she was like a sister

Whatever I did

She did

Wherever I went

She went

Except for one thing

And no matter how hard I tried

I couldn’t get her to stop

Now she’s gone

She died alone

And I was so angry

And then I was so sad

I miss her very much

I still cry sometimes

She is in a better place

She must be

That’s how I go on

Without her

About Magnolia Beginnings

Just when you think you have it all down it changes again or... “Reshaping life! People who can say that have never understood a thing about life—they have never felt its breath, its heartbeat—however much they have seen or done. They look on it as a lump of raw material that needs to be processed by them, to be ennobled by their touch. But life is never a material, a substance to be molded. If you want to know, life is the principle of self-renewal, it is constantly renewing and remaking and changing and transfiguring itself, it is infinitely beyond your or my obtuse theories about it.” ― Boris Pasternak, Doctor Zhivago
