Sometimes I wonder if I can make it thru the day, then I remember your smile, and I know that I can....

“If there ever comes a day when we can't be together, keep me in your heart. I'll stay there forever.” -A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

“If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together... there is something you must always remember. you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart... I'll always be with you.” ― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

A ladybug landed on my window today, 
such a beautiful sight in this world of gray.

I couldn't pull my eyes away as I thought of you
and all of the love and all of the things 
that I want to say.

I felt a little breeze when the ladybug flew away,
and a whisper in the wind 
"don't be sad, everything will be ok."

Of all the things I had to play, I'd choose my brother any ole day.

I Miss
© Salena A. Hayes
I miss you,
I miss the loud music coming
from your room,
I miss the warmth of knowing
You're just a call away,
I miss the way we fought and
I miss seeing your big bright
I miss getting kicked out of
your room,
I miss seeing you here and
I miss eating together breakfast
lunch and dinner,
I miss hearing you come in
at night,
I miss making you wear your
seat belt,
I miss holding your hand to
I miss your smell,
I miss you with all my might,
I miss the way we would fight,
I miss my brother,
I miss my friend,
I miss you I love you and that's
