My Wild Angel


I am listening to all of our 

old jams

…thinking of you

Beastie Boys and 

Smashing Pumpkins 

Time does not fly 

…it is dangling on the edge of our bedroom window 

Watching us when we were kids 

Eddie Vedder and white tees 

And rebels just wanna have fun 

…so we did 

Now all my heart does is playback our memories 

Converse and coffee 

Hooked on the repeat

Smoke from your cigarette butts

Drawing a mirror 

around my face

Where you would always grin 

and say 

“Everything will be ok”

Even with the odds trimming the life from your face 

Honestly, without you here 

That hole in my gut, reappeared 

So be my wild angel 

And I will be your little rebel

Be my wild angel

Hold me and whisper…


Scream our songs through the wind

Hit me with the beats like a best friend 

I love you and there is no end

Be my wild angel

Lead me into heaven

…So we can be kids again

  1. What a beautiful testimony for your brother, Sis. The mean thing about being blessed with such a beautiful soul is that the more joy and love someone bringes in our lives the more empty it feels when the move on. Although they never really leave, their physical absence makes it so hard. Sometimes it all comes back as if it happened just yesterday. Your brother will always keep that place in your life. I hug you strongly, Kristin. You know that you are loved πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

    1. Yes that is right sis, there are certain times I get so sad and so frustrated I can’t share and talk with him like we use to. He helped me through a lot and always made it better. I love you a lot Erika. You have been such a help and guide to me. I really mean it. I just adore you sis. Thank you so much for your words and love and hugs.

  2. You know how much I have enjoyed just about everything you’ve posted to this blog since I first started following. Of everything I have read from you so far, of all the moving and stirring expressions of your soul, I think this is perhaps the most moving. You do your brother a great honor by remembering him so – and you do him an even greater honor by inviting him to move forward with you as your wild angel – just as you have done us all an honor by sharing this expression from your soul.

  7. This is repeated in every generation…I look back with a mixture of longing and regret but all of it is part of who I am now. We always have now, even back then, and into our future. We hold the full, spherical, whole of our history within ourselves. Nothing and no one is ever really lost…

    1. Thank you Pam. Yes we do, it’s both painful and beautiful. I agree he isn’t lost but part of me is- atleast for now. I miss his presence on this earth, so much. His voice, his laugh.

    1. Hi my beautiful. Thank you so much. Yeah It was harder than I thought as it kinda messed me up the next day. I miss him so much- nothing like someone who knows your ins and outs and still totally loves you- and makes you laugh, now that’s always needed in this crazy world. I love when you visit- your beautiful smile on my screen and your words that are real and come from your beautiful spirit. I so appreciate you girl! Xoxox

  9. I am moved to tears, SG. Dear God, I am shaking! Yesterday was the first year anniversary of my Dad’s death, and the heaviness in my Heart is unbearable. I know what you feel. I understand in spades. This poem is SO beautiful and your brother would be so darn proud of you. Your Light has become SO bright and it is my belief that through our pains our Light becomes ever stronger, IF we allow It to. Yours has. I’ve seen your struggles and I I’ve felt your pain. I have an Angel in Heaven as do you. And like you I continue to be a rebel here on earth refusing to conform to the insanity that has become the norm for too many. I LOVE YOU!!! (((HUGS))) Amy ❀

    1. Oh Amy! You are such an amazing woman- you truly are. You have me in tears. Good tears. When you say he’s proud it just floors me- I have felt a lot of regret since losing my daughter and then my brother. Thinking of all I didn’t do and wanting to be enough for them so when I see them again there will be no disappointment. I know that may sound silly but it’s true. Thank you so much. You have touched me deeply. I know you have great insight and you have helped me with mine. Yes you have seen the pain of mine and you were right here helping me. You are such a gift. I pray my light will be strong-that is what I want. It’s hard when the pain is so heavy. Like with you and your dad. I am so sorry for that loss, I know it hurts and your heart is so precious and so intune that it hurts that much more. Talk about being proud, your angel daddy is beaming! My goodness Amy you are a beacon of light and love and hope and kindness. I appreciate you with ever ounce of me. Thank you sweet rose🌹. Love you. P.S: I see him smiling so big for his girl. ❀️

      1. Please don’t be so hard on yourself, SG. Your daughter and your brother LOVE you for who you are right now! They know you better then you know yourself so how could you ever disappoint them? They know you are doing your best and that is all anyone can ask of anyone, including yourself. I wouldn’t doubt that my Dad right now is hugging your daughter and has an arm around your brother’s shoulder saying to them how glorious our Light is and how proud he is to have more family now … Standing in until you can get to your Loved Ones again. That’s my Dad! So now we are officially family, how about that? Let us both wipe away the tears and the sadness and in their place, smile and carry HAPPY in our Hearts. My Dad I know would want that for me, as I am sure your daughter and brother would want that of you. Life is but a blink of the eye … and then we are HOME. Kick up your heels and dance, sing and know you are Loved. All is GOOD, SG. All is GOOD!!! ❀ ❀ ❀
