Can you share a poem with us?
"My Lost Loved One"
You are so loved, you are so missed.
Never thought you’d feel pain like this.
I want you to understand, I hurt too
Because I am not physically there with you.
Don’t blame yourself it was my time.
I want you to know I’m doing just fine.
Although I hurt sometimes too
When I see the pain in your heart because I’m not there with you.
But please, don’t stop living because of me.
We’ll meet again in the future you’ll see.
You are not forgotten; I’m with you constantly
And I still remember all of our memories.
So when you decide to get sad and feel lonely,
Remember our good times and say to yourself "I know he still loves me"
Tell us about your current book.
My current book, The Tension Reliever, is my first poetry book. The poems are about life experiences and what I have seen other people going through. I wanted to give inspiration.
What’s next for you?
Well I’m currently editing my 5th book. My first Christian Fiction book, "Too Much Untold." I’m revamping my ministry and expanding my online magazine all over the internet.
