In September 2014, my life came crashing down. I lost my beloved daughter, Marian Monique “Mimi” English. She was born January 22, 1977. So, I am thinking about her today as her natal birthday approaches. This is what emerges out of the ashes of my grief.
I could cry for a thousand years
Tears could not covey deep sorrow’s painful howls.
I felt them when I lost you.
My heart possessed the joy of comprehending the gate of separation.
The sting of death will never immobilize my love for you.
Captured in memories are the essence of family;
United in ancestry that lives on forever in history.
Time stand on the cliff of Infinite wisdom.
I cling to the hope that someday we’ll meet again.
Far beyond physical dimensions of time. . . .
