I Wish You Were Still Here

    I can't stop but think about what it would be

    like if you were still here. You were way too young. I think you'd be strong. Protective. But at the same time, soft and kind. I think you'd make me laugh, help me experience new things. I think you'd be like me. I miss who you would have been. Love you my older brother.

    I wonder what It would be like fishing with you.

    Would you be focused and skillful? Or fun and try to make me laugh? Do you think Christmas things are silly or do you cherish it? I wonder what advice you would give me. Or what you think I should name my dog. I miss you so much, someone I've only dreamt about. Love...

    Nothing works any more.

    Everyone keeps telling me that I'll get through this. It's been like 7 months. The only grace is still growing inside me. Your son has a power kick! How am I going to do this without you? How am I going to do this alone? I feel like I'm having this amazingly long nightmare...

    People would look at me

    and my brother oddly because we were so close. We weren't twins, but might as well have been. Yet at 22 months apart, we were still close enough. I'm a very hard person to get to know, an even harder person to love. He was polar opposite of me in every way, so people...

    who was my aegis, never faltering, enduring and vigil always by my side. forgive me for not being there as you were laid to rest. to the brother who watched over me, standing firm as my beacon and showing me the path when things were bleak. forgive me for condemning you to fate...

    It's just the beginning of another busy

    workweek, and I really wish that she was around to hear about my day and to share her day with me as well, like we used to in happier days. Those things I really miss the most. Oh well.. maybe someday we can be that way again. But then again? When I recall how she just threw...

    As I look out my window this evening,

    I see your star shining down upon the world. If I stand here long enough, I can feel your hand resting gently upon my beating heart. I'd do anything for one more night with you. To kiss your lips and get lost in the warmth of your embrace, would mean the world to me tonight. I...

    Papa...I miss you so much tonight.

    ...I'm thinking of that morning when I woke up, stretched and then started crying from the pain when a nerve got stuck in my neck. You were there even before I could call you...I'm missing you and thinking of the day you bandaged my fingers together when I sprained them playing...

    Missing You Still (two years later)

    I miss you. There are days when I can handle the fact you're gone, but then there are days that I wish you were still here. I can still see your brown eyes, your brown curly hair and that smile. Oh that smile! Your smile lit up my world. I never had the chance to fully enjoy it...

    What if I told you, first

    and foremost Jackson my baby boy was healthy, safe, and happy right now. What if I told you, I am not any of the above. What if I told you, that I'd do something to myself, if I knew he'd be better without me. What if I told you, that sometimes I feel, he would be better...
