In The Pink

Health Update – watch the video on YouTube for salient details in text format. I’m happy to turn on captions but cannot do the editing currently, so if someone wants to, that’d be awesome.


Used To Be Daughter

Tell her I am dead
So she need not suffer
Stay awake at night
color drawing of Mexican Folk Art
Reading the grief
I can’t help but write

I used to be her daughter
But sickness took its toll
Add time and age
and we all, we all,
we falter

I used to be like her.
There used to be laughter.

Tell her I am dead now.

She no longer need suffer.
