Favorite Quote:
Oftentimes we say goodbye to the person we love without wanting to. Though that doesn’t mean that we've stopped loving them or we've stopped to care. Sometimes goodbye is a painful way to say I love you....


One Mississippi,
I gaze across the river,
Two Mississippi,
You invade my mind,
Three Mississippi,
My decision is made.

One Mississippi,
I climb into my car,
Two Mississippi,
Your picture is in view,
Three Mississippi,
My car chugs to life.

One Mississippi,
I press down the gas,
Two Mississippi,
Your words on repeat,
Three Mississippi,
“My love, live on”.

One Mississippi,
I jerk the wheel,
Two Mississippi,
Your presence on me,
Three Mississippi,
My heart skips.

One Mississippi,
I see the bright lights,
Two Mississippi,
You never leave me,
Three Mississippi,
My breathing fails.

Four Mississippi,
I have found you at last.

Everyone has lost someone close to them...some people have sorrow too great to handle.
