The Joy of Words (Mehreen)

It feels such an honor to be a part of Leo’s celebrations and to be able to write on this blog.
I name this post “The Joy of Words” because this is what Leo had gifted us with the past so many posts. Words that are like painting on a canvas, that seem to whisper to your heart and tell you “I understand”… Any emotion, just name it, and he seems to have understood how you exactly felt and whisper them all silently to you.
I haven’t known Leo for a long time, but he’s that sweet fellow who’s always there with a cheery “hello” when I login, who’s always concerned when he feels I am upset, who’s always there with the sweet friendly hugs on something good 🙂
The joy of words – thank you for the words that speak to our hearts. For the words that seem to be with us in every joy, in every heart break, in the plain simplicity of life. Thank you for the joy of words.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
