Brother…I love you!

I have been busy, again, with my other website. Still my focal point of inspiration and dedication is my brother. Soon it will be 3.8 years. Almost 4! Wow! I remember thinking how it would feel when the years start to roll by. I have my brother in my mind and heart 24/7 since that […]

Three years today

12 Dec

A lot has happened between yesterday and today. I finally got to talk to a counselor that I had been seeking for almost 3 years. I can’t believe I finally did it. Three years of pain and sorrow. I have found out that I am desperately seeking closure to my ordeal. Too many things and […]

I know whom I have believed

23 Feb

This month of February marked another birthday for my beloved brother. It was also my anniversary day. Sweet and Sour Day. Valentine’s Day just 2 days after his 26th month anniversary.

There Will Be a Day

  I try to hold on to this world with everything I have But I feel the weight of what it brings, and the hurt that tries to grab The many trials that seem to never end, His word declares this truth, that we will enter in this rest with wonders anew But I hold […]

Sad, confused, and lonely

Today is raining in Tampa Bay. I am feeling so down. I don’t know where God is. Sometimes I feel I’m a hypocrite. I sound down to earth, some of my posts sound like I really grew spiritually and that I really get it. But a lot of times I don’t! Today is one of […]

Brother, I am holding on (#29)

29 Apr

Another dedication poem from my collection of writings I have gathered through the days. The picture below is very dear and still it deeply saddens me to see. Our last Thanksgiving Day was spent there. I walked the sandy beach with my brother on a beautiful November sunny morning. In this walk my brother gave […]

He has Risen!!!

6 Apr

     1 Corinthians 15:12-22 12 But if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13 If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. 14 And if Christ has not been […]

Lament for a brother (#3)

28 Mar

This poem I wrote in August 2011. It is the third in a series of poems I wrote to God, my mom, and my Carlitos. I am presenting only a section, for it’s much longer and I want visitors to read it. I might sound a little selfish in this poem, but that is part of my grief. […]
