for one who loves just as i...

there is one who shares a love of these

just as much as

my love...littles...and i

years ago

when a loved one passed

 a heart rock lay waiting

minutes later

on the porch of my parents house

for us

these are touchstones found

left waiting to be discovered

a sign

a gift

a reminder

that though she is no longer here with us 

her presence remains

Rose Kennedy once said:

β€œIt has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.”
