Memories


'Memories of you fill my mind,
like thousands of bright stars in the sky.'




Al een jaar geleden dat mijn lieve Moesj is heengegaan ...
ik heb rozen uit de tuin op haar grafje gelegd, ik mis haar zo ...
Ik mis onze ochtendroutine :
"Hey lieve Moesj"
"Miauw"
knuffelen en dan samen ontbijten.
Als ik door mijn bestanden blader,
kom ik steeds weer bij foto's van haar terecht ...

*

My sweet Moesj passed away 1 year ago ...
I put roses from the garden on her grave, still miss her so ...
I miss our morning routine :
"Hi sweet Moesj"
"Meow"
snuggling and then breakfast together.
I'm scrolling through my files
and often ending up looking at pictures of her ...




'New Dawn' roses from the garden ...

Nostalgia is a way of remembering
people and places and things, and
wishing things hadn't changed.
It has a sweetness to it.
Sadness is just -well- being sad.


~ Linda Lael Miller
