I’ve always been true to my mantra of “A single smile can spread and make more smiles.” Today however, my mantra fails me, for I’ve forgotten how to. I never realized how small things can make such a big difference in a life. What I did, it was inadvertent. Never meant to do it, but it lost your smile. It has happened before, but I’ve always got it back. Now, I can’t even explain myself. For once, I’ve failed my own mantra, and perhaps done something I don’t know if will let us be the same again. I’ll always be beside you, but I never thought I’d be the reason you’re in pain. We talked of death so easily, laughed about it. I now really do wonder how Heaven would feel like. Wish I could take a peek, see it beauty and stay enchanted by it for forever more.

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.
