   I always thought
   That I knew you so well  
   But as you sat
   With Heaven beside you
   While we began
   To clear out
   Your crowded bookshelves,
   Overstuffed drawers,
   And cluttered rooms,
   I started to see
   All the quiet things
   That no one ever knows.
   And it was in those moments
   That I realized
   What an amazing and talented
   Person you really were
   And what you did for us
   When life hit us hard.
   If I had just one more day,
   I would spend that time
   Simply thanking you.
   But since I can't,
   I will appreciate
   What I have and what I've become
   Because of you.                     JD

Dear Mama

I miss you everyday. I hope you are well, that you are at God's feet among all your favorite people that we have lost over the years. I try to remember you with positivism but it is extremely hard. I am saddened by the realization that my future children will never know you. They will never feel your soft hands and be embraced with love and warmth when they visit 'Salu'.

Oh Mama! How it hurts, I pray for so many things but I pray hardest that my little heart heals some day. Holidays are lonely without you, your birthday as empty as can be, the day we buried you is the worst of all! Some days are a bigger struggle than others.

Nonetheless, I hope you know how much you were ...

When they see you as a strong woman, they think that you do not need anything or anyone, you can bear everything and will overcome whatever happens. That you do not mind being listened to, cared for or pampered.

When they see you as a strong woman, they just look for you to help them carry their crosses. They talk to you and they think you do not need to be heard.

A strong woman is not asked if she is tired, suffering or falling, if she has anxiety or fear. The important thing is that she is always there: a lighthouse in the fog or a rock in the middle of the sea.

The strong woman is not forgiven anything. If she loses control, she becomes weak. If she loses her temper, she becomes hysteri...

i heard he holds you in his arms
i heard he slaps you're face
i heard he kisses your lips
i heard he yanks your hair
i heard he hugs you close
i heard he pushes you away
i heard he strokes your hair
i heard he punches your face
i heard he loves you
i heard he threatens you
I've heard a lot of things about him
now i want to hear it all from you

MY MOTHER WAS A BUTTERFLY

She was a butterfly,
Without her wings, she flew,
She lacked the silky, black and orange adornment,
But, her Beauty was equal and true,
From here to there, she fluttered,
As if the ground did not exist,
Our time with her was momentary,
Short and sweet, it was,
To catch a glimpse  of her,
In her fleeting flight,
Was, wonderous, an extraordinary sight,
Spirit full of freedom,
From emergence, of the cocoon,
In her world there were no ceilings,
There were no walls, to bind,
She fluttered, and mingled in crowds of her like kind,
And traveled through the day, as if she magically avoided the chains of time,
There are many, that seem perfectly the same as her,
But none cou...

SWEEDLE'S CREATIVE CORNER: 03

---------------------------
Things she left for me
--------------------------

Her smile that I barely find on my lips now.
Her clothes that I no longer have to steal.
A secret box of love for my 18th birthday.
A stained bedsheet, with her blood painted.
Her pills that can never bring her back.
Tears in my eyes while imagining her.
The list of her dreams for my future.
Emptiness for dad, as he now lives like a corpse.
A dairy where she scribbled our names to regain her memories.
A kitchen where she was the chef, stuffing us with calories.
An album full of our old pictures.
The last bottle of champagne, that we as a family sipped together.

~Shiksha

.......................... Maa........................

Kya likhi is kalm se tere bare me ,
Jis kalam ko pakadna tune sikhaya.
Kuch samajh me aa nahi raha is jehan me,
Jisme chetana tume jagayi...
Likhna to bahoot kuch chah raha hu,
Par kalam sath nahi de rahi...
Sochta hu kuch lafz udhar le lu,
Par mangu kisse....
Fir sochta hu khud hi likhta hu,
Par samajh nahi aa raha suru kahan se karun.....
Badi jaddo jehet karne par v nahi sujh raha kuch....
Na jane bhagwan ne banaya kaise...
Lagata h aukaat nahi meri,
Ki kuch likhu tere bare me,
Bas yahi tamanna h ki jahan v ho kush ho... Aur is jevan mrityu ke chakra se tujhe mukti mile.....

I still carry it
The guilt
That I didn't do enough,
Care enough,
Love enough
People tell me
It's all in my head
But a year gone by
And it still festers
Deep in my soul
So I have to believe
It stays for a reason
And will continue
Until that moment
Of clarity
When you 'tell me'
I can let it go.           JD

....................... Maa.................

Yesterday I lost my mom..... Yeh thats hard to believe.... But yes...,
If feels like I lost my breath.... And trying hard to catch it but unable to do so....
I don't know how to react ...... Should I cry.. Should I be like strong and focused one.... How my mom want me to be and take care of the family. I am trying hard to be strong... Atleast in front of everyone and take care of all of them.... But I lost the one who take cares of me.
Mom is a fighter... Or was a fighter... I don't know how to write in past tense....
Mom..... Mom..... Please come na...... Maaa...... Aaa.....
It's been a long fight between mom and cancer🦀..... More then 15 ...

First day of school.. in front of the school bus, he cried..
refusing to loosen up his hug for his mother... making sure the emotions were tight enough to her for letting him go...

made him board the bus.. while she smiled and waved him a good bye...

Second day.. he cried again to make her hold his hand while requesting her in anyway possible to let him stay..

she hugged him.. made him board the bus and waved him a good bye

Another day in.. he kept constantly looking into her eyes trying some unknown way.. inventing some mysterious way.. to request her and let him stay..
he tried to cry but today he couldn’t he knew it doesn’t work..
he boarded by himself and waved a bye..
She smiled......

For the world, her red lipstick was a symbol of being 'Slut'.
For her, it was a symbol of being 'Powerful'.

A Mother; Happy Birthday Mom

What Is A Mother?: A mother is the woman who raises you, the one who never lets you fall.. And when you do she picks you up again, dusts you off and sends you right back on your way. A mother is that voice in your head, that encourages you, tells you ' You can do it, push on and prove them wrong' That is what a mother is, your guiding force, your provider and also a friend in the good times and bad, a mother is what everyone needs. No matter how old they may be.

What Will A Mother Do?: That is simple  a mother will help you past,the darkest times  into the light again. Through the sad times, into happiness and silliness, even from mad times. When all you w...

Happy Mother’s Day

We want to celebrate mothers who remember everything from our first day at school, birthdays, awards, graduations, and every major life events. They will check up on us when we’re sick, remind us what’s not to be forgotten and leaves messages or texts that made us roll our eyes because it was from mom. She’s the first person we call when we’re broken. There’s something comforting when we go home to see mom during the holidays. Maybe it’s the smell of her cooking, the smell of fresh sheets in our old bedroom or just her presence makes us feel safe.

There are some amongst us who had lost their mother at a young age from illness. There are no words to describe the pain whe...

Happy Mother’s Day.

I would be nothing without your love.
I can never do enough for you.
The things that we read about the sacrifices that god had made for all of us, only make me feel that you’re a form of god. And I can openly say that I have not only seen, but lived, loved and have spend my whole life in the presence of god.
