The rain once again paid a visit.
His thundering laugh warming
And his blinding smile familiar.
He knows me more than anyone.

I stare in his eyes and I am calmed.
On the days I am too far gone,
He masks my tears with his own.
His presence is something welcomed.

This time he brought me a present.
He has returned my precious stone.
It was filthy, but I readily cleansed it.
Washed, it almost looked the same.

But I saw the fine chips and cracks.
I saw what could not be fixed.
I tried to forget, to no avail.
My precious Jade stone, so loved,

Will never be the same.

    Hi Sweetie!!! Welcome back, hon. This is a sad write, but also a happy one. Dear...let me tell you...we are all some ways. Life can be tough, but...if we hold time we'll see, the cracks make us stronger. They are a testament to our ability to survive. So happy she's returned. You have a wonderful way of expressing your thoughts. Just like your sweet, Mama. Hugs
