This poem is dedicated to my cousin Natalia
wound reopens and I am missing her terribly.
Since I live In the west coast now, over
1,482 miles away, I wasn't able to be there or,go to the funeral. So to me is still surreal.
This one is for you Nati..
I Still Remember You
The ray of light that was your smile
As it came and went with your laughter
still in our heart dwells and flutters
as the butterfly in mid autumn.
In your eyes stood love and beauty
as a friend and daughter, unmistakable.
as my heart misses you still, Naty.
My girl, like no other, remarkable.
Because you will live here forever
inside my heart, in my memory
hoping your smile be remembered
branding in my heart your story.
