To my little birds, for whom I will forever ache, missing under my wings since 12/13/2012…

Gone, but always on my mind and in the hole in my heart that can only be filled by you,

A, R, R, Z. You are forever in my prayers and thoughts.

My hope is that you are truly happy, genuinely allowed to enjoy your childhood, and that you do not suffer paralyzing grief because of our separation.

I hold hope in my heart that one day we can sweep up the pieces, laugh and cry about all we have lost/missed, and can never again be forcibly kept apart.

This poem is by Emily Dickinson…and is my dreaded, daily reminder of you, my sweet Angelbabies…love you to the moon and back, more than ice cream, and forever and always…

“Quite empty, quite at rest,
The Robin locks her Nest, and tries her Wings.
She does not know a Route
But puts her Craft about
For rumored Springs
She does not ask for Noon
She does not ask for Boon,
Crumbless and homeless, of but one request
The Birds she lost.”

“If you feel you’re sinking, I will jump right over into cold, cold water for you…” Major Lazer

“Cold Water” (2016) is an energetic, upbeat dance song by Major Lazer, featuring Justin Bieber.

The message of “Cold Water” is about how love gives us the strength to endure challenges; we can use that strength to fight for, and protect the ones we love. 

“Come on, come on
Save me from my rocking boat
I just want to stay afloat
I’m all alone
And I hope, I hope
Someone’s gonna take me home
Somewhere I can rest my soul
I need to know

You won’t let go 
I’ll be your lifeline tonight
You won’t let go
I’ll be your lifeline tonight..”

“Wait for me to come home…” (Photograph by Ed Sheeran)

We keep this love in a photograph
We made these memories for ourselves
Where our eyes are never closing
Hearts are never broken
Times forever frozen still

So you can keep me
Inside the pocket
Of your ripped jeans
Holdin’ me closer
‘Til our eyes meet
You won’t ever be alone
Wait for me to come home..

Photograph” by Ed Sheeran is a heartfelt song that talks about the pain of being away from someone that you love. The “photograph” has a double meaning – it is a snap shot of a precious moment spent together, but it also symbolizes the memories we hold in our heart.

“Oh you can fit me
Inside the necklace you got when you were 16
Next to your heartbeat
Where I should be
Keep it deep within your soul..”

“Photograph” offers a powerful message about love; even though love can be hard (especially when you are apart or estranged) “it is the only thing that keeps us alive“. 

Ed Sheeran shares personal home videos in the video for “Photograph”. The song is included on his second album, X (released in 2014).
