Same same…

My tiny teacher…

I was looking through my journal the other day and stumbled across a little note I wrote after my niece Kiya passed away.  On January 7th, 2009 I wrote “When I grow up I want to be like Kiya…I want to fight my way through life in the most peaceful and beautiful way possible”.  With 12 days left until we “celebrate” a year since my Dads passing these words couldnt be more true.  This has been a tough journey to “fight” through, but I am praying I continue to fight through it in the most peaceful way I know how, all the while still seeing the beauty through the pain.

Thank you Miss Kiya Jade – you were the tinniest fighter I knew with some of the greatest lessons to teach me.

Wake me up when September ends….

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
wake me up when September ends

like my father’s come to pass
seven years has gone so fast
wake me up when September ends

here comes the rain again
falling from the stars
drenched in my pain again
becoming who we are

as my memory rests
but never forgets what I lost
wake me up when September ends
