The kids who need the most love will ask for it in the most unloving ways.

Her eyes held depth, 

Held in those light blue eyes,

Blue like the ocean, She held your own.


She was as rare as a Blue Rose

Like the crystal blue earrings she passed to you

If she cried, She cried a tsunami, 

Your own personal Conflagration, Devastation like your own Annihilation


She must have been Amicable, Congenial, and Cordial

Because, although she did not raise you

Who you are seems it was shaped from someone well rooted,

Impervious to it's surroundings


Blue roses, as rare as can be do bloom,

If you ever see one hold on to it tightly,

Even though you may get pricked.

To hold on to it loosely means you have let go to easily,

And too let go of such a beautiful thing would be pain stakingly horrid.

This is for my mother who lost a very wonderful grandmother many years ago she taught my mom to be the wonderful human being she is today with the help of my mema, Her mother I wish I could have met such a beautiful human being but I am glad she took the time to love my mom and show her how to be just as wonderful and now I get to learn from her.

The universe must be a teenage girl. So much darkness, so many stars.

Wonderful thoughts, and beautifully articulated. I love this craft!
