Two Years Today... For Angel JK

Two years its been-painfully we struggled through the first half, barely survived the second half quite like a dream, trance like...going with the flow not caring where that flow may take me! Two years it seems like yesterday you told us your stay on earth is complete. You must return home where our Creator calls your name! 'Time flies when you're having fun, Go big or go home was s...ome of your favourite expressions' well Angel J..our Angel of smiles I can testify that time not only flies but it Jets by when you're in sorrow and the paradox is for most of us time stood still that dreadful july day...2yrs today! Who knew The biggest thing to do is to go home...that ripping of soul july...two years today! The questions with no answers still cloud my thoughts. Two years today...I still hear your laughter -your monkey giggle, your crazy theories shared to confuse, bemuse...and to the few who knew and got it...provoke thoughts deep like only you could! I miss sharing my thoughts with you. Like how if time stood still that heart wrecking, shattering shrapnel july, two years could it jet past stealth in its movement but felt to its core every second in its second. If going home was going big are you doing it like you doing it for mtv...or would that be GTV(God tv) ... Guess I need to know are you giggling and happy...have you met my mom and taking care of Adu...have you greeted nana and shoems dad...playing with carmies little ones- I need to know will I see you all again? I hear you telling me 'jassie jy dink baie for someone who failed grade 1' Its things I need to know... I miss u JK today tomorrow forever...I'll miss u and love u until the day I see u again...and u better have it going on! Two years today...its that horrid july again but I smile through my tears coz I feel you here...right here where I carry you...right here in my soul! Shine bright our Angel of smiles...Fly high! Love infinity From all you touched even for the briefest of will never be forgotten.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
