  • “If there ever comes a day when we can't be together keep me in your heart, I'll stay there forever"
    -Winnie the Pooh

    I went to the cemetery today, I feel a connection there, synchronicity often brings me. Spirits of loved ones with messages, speaking to me in the way they do (crazy to some, I know). Today I cleared overgrown grass from my grandparents' gravestones, I found myself clearing nearby graves that had been unattended, thinking they were loved once and mattered.

    I have a baby boy in this cemetery who has no marker and I don't know where he's buried, I couldn't bring myself to attend his burial. Never met him alive but loved him with all my heart (a heart forever broken).

    Every time I go, I try to find my mother's burial site, and although it's right near my grandparents, I always have trouble finding it. Maybe it's her way of letting me know she's not really there, but with me always.
