another day gone by

Cousins got married when I couldn’t be there.

Caskets were shut without my goodbye.

Friends’ lives went on with busy days.

I laid in a bed.

Then I pushed at the wheels of a chair.

Now the keyboard talks for me when my voice can’t be trusted.

My cousin is no longer a newlywed.

A friend has had to move past the graveyard.

Those lives are still busy.

I get out of bed and push those wheels and hope the keys say the right things.

    Anissa, you are strong. You always have and always will be. The things you do are amazing. Days will always go by but no matter what the words will always come. And they will always have a meaning.

    And I bet that wedding was fun! and not to get to say good bye to your friend is really hard. There is so much change going on in your life I sometimes feel overwhelmed on your behalf. Thank you for writing about all of this.

    Just keep typing…because so many people love you dearly. Time does fly by, but know that we all value the time we get to read what YOU write. Just keep going…

    It’s scary sometimes to realize how quickly life goes on – how it can still go on without us. It makes us realize how damn insignificant we are in the grand scheme of things.

    It’s also pretty inspiring to know that life goes on. Because eventually, we find ourselves past graveyards, past comas, and even – someday – past keyboards that have to do the talking for us.

    Roll on, Love. Roll on.

    Anissa – I just recently found you and I’m so glad. Each of us has a story. And I’m thankful that you’re sharing yours with us. I’ve been blogging my way through breast cancer. What would I have done with all of those foul words had I not been able to throw them onto the internet? Keep writing!

    I am just partially crippled, and even though it’s been a gradual process, I still find it hard to adjust to everyday tasks. Your blog has really helped me cope. If you can do it, maybe I can too. I thank you so much for sharing you experiences. For every milestone you make, I realize that I cannot pity myself, and I must keep on working. Cheers to getting there!

    The keys (YOU) always say the right thing!

    You are one hell of a woman, a fighter, a believer, a joker, a loveable, strong, fantastic woman and I dont even know you!
