Favorite Quote:
Doubt is the beginning, not the end, of wisdom

The palm leaf wilts more everyday,
But I'll keep it until it turns to grey.
I took it from him when it fell to the floor.
We spoke no goodbyes when she tripped through Death's door.
His ears bled with treason and he ran the same way.
I didn't cry or shout out; There was nothing to say.
Life begets only death, maybe love you can lose.
It only depends on the roads that you choose.
I cried when I lost them, so much absence around.
I hope there's a place for them in silver-rimmed clouds.

The author's comments:
"Grief is forever, It doesn't do away; it becomes part of you, step for step, breath for breath. I will never stop grieving...because I will never stop loving her. That's just how it is. Grief and love are conjoined, you don't get one without the other." The Sky Is Everywhere ~ Jandy Nelson
