i remember we went ice skating
and i wasnt too big to hold your hand
and look how happy we are
back when i could still fit comfortable in laundry baskets
remember when i'd play for you
and you'd tell all the neighbors
i'd be something someday
and you'd carry me to bed
on cold nights
and tuck me in
and tell me you loved me

i still have these things
they're mine
just from other people
i ice skate with girls who giggle
and guys who catch them
and we're not too big to hold hands
and look how happy we are
now when i can sit comfortably in laundry rooms
and now i play for people
and they tell everyone around me
i sure am something
and he carries me to sleep
and tucks me in
and tells me he loves me

all the people i need now
were you
and you knew best for me
still do

i remember you ice skating
and you weren't too big to hold my hand
and look,
look how happy we are
thanks mom

joy has its own justice. and dreams are languid and lawless. and everything bows to beauty, when it's fierce and when it's flawless...

this makes me wish I hate that with my mom...
or at least wish she hadn't left...
but it is beautiful.

Always, Alyssa

if you chase it,
it will surely fly away,instead
hold it close and watch it grow into
something beautiful"

This pulled at the heartstrings...thanks for taking me back.. I remember sitting in the laundry basket *smile*

A beautiful tribut to Mum.

Beauty of the world which is soon to perish has two edges, one of laughter and one of anguish, cutting the heart asunder.
(by Virginia Woolf)
