I Still Remember – A Poem - I still remember The warmth of your tiny body on my bosom The first time I held you in my arms The tears of joy rolling down my face I still remember The sweet resonance of you suckling on my breast The heavenly ambrosial of your milky smile When you wrapped your tiny hands around my finger I still remember The panic of not finding a rhythm to your breathing The tears rolling down my face when I held you to my heart Though you're no longer part of my world I still remember!   Continue Reading

You’re such a nerd!” Grace shouted back. Angela stared at her sister as though asking her to say something new that she did not already know. “Seriously, come here! You really want to see this!” Grace persisted.
