Hey guys.
I hope you have been doing better than I have. I apologize for not having posted in so long. I wanted to write something positive and uplifting for you all, something to encourage you and give you hope. And I have faith I’ll get back to that place. But that’s not where I’ve been, and I don’t want to be insincere with you.
So thank you for your patience, and while we wait for that spark to return, here is something for you now. Because maybe some of you out there are here with me now, and maybe we can work our way back together.
 
Always yours,
Shigé

I Wear Your Shoes

I saw this poem by e. e. cummings, and it really echoed the feeling of my poem today. So I present both to you.

I wore your shoes today.
To carry you with me.
In all the words I say,
In everything I see.
Your spirit comes along
In every step I take,
You help me to be strong
In every choice I make.
So I will love, and pray,
And be who you would be.
I wore your shoes today,
To carry you with me.

I Carry Your Heart

Losing You

I am terrified
To lose the image of your face,
That only heartache will replace
Its contours in my mind.
I am raw with pain,
And reaching for your fading shape,
Praying that it will not escape
The fragile, fickle bind
That is memory.
Is there nothing cannot be lost?
Have I not paid whatever cost
Was set for loving you?
Please leave something here,
Some happy shred of who you were,
One thought to which I can refer
For all the love we knew.
