Robert Lee

I felt you one day. 

I knew it was true. 

You were there.

Inside me you lay.

It wasn't meant to be. 

I bleed you away.

As it happened again.

I cried  you away. 

I said, not doing this again.

Then it happened one day.

You came to me again.

Said you want to come thru.

And I was to be your vessel.  

I named you after my dad. 

Robert Lee ,, now thirty-one.

my son also named his son Robert Lee, who is turned 3 Jan 17, 2013.

 The Ghost Baby :
Time and Space and Spirit 
Collide softly at a crossroad 
Where the Ghost Baby awaits Form

    I am engulfed by the sadness of this and life. It is remarkable how some things work out so sadly and yet others come out so well. Life is such a mixed blessing, and there is so much to understand. I did write a little thing that's good for the lighter side :) I like your intensity. You seem to me to be such a good person!
