these are so depressing! why do i share them though? because at the same time they’re…beautiful.
“when i die,
i want to go peacefully like my grandfather did,
in his sleep.
not screaming, like the passengers in his car.”

little boy, when you speak,
i can’t help but kiss your cheeks.
i love the way you grab my hands
and tell me all about your plans.
rocket high, comets fly,
you and i could take a ride.
and fly away to neverland
and give our best to peter pan.
when you reach for the stars,
don’t forget who you are.
and please don’t turn around and grow up way too fast!
see the sand in my grasp,
from the first to the last;
every grain becomes a memory of the past.
oh, life’s an hourglass…
life’s an hourglass.
story’s read, prayer is said,
close your eyes, sleepyhead!
while angels linger in your dreams
and hold you in their feathered wings.
just like you, i was small,
not that long ago at all.
i wish you all the happiness,
that god gives freely if you ask.
