your candle

today, you would have been twenty-nine
i did the same thing i did the morning you passed away
i went out, a long walk
here's to your light that hasn't been put out
rest now old friend,
i remember those days filled with laughter and still some pain even thru your smile...

on the week that went by

The week went by glad to be alive, Man City FC lost to Everton FC... some good in that :)

on today? I am so sorry
so i
