Sun Kissed Days

I am floating on a cloud
searching for you,
the memory lifts me higher
close to the heavens 
where I seek to find you. 
I am floating on a cloud
my hair is wild 
my heart is light
I am searching for you.
I wish to cast my eyes upon you
and feel your heartbeat.
I walked in the park today,
I felt you walk beside me.
I wept hiding under my shades
the fog was rising 
my eyes stinging from my weeping.
I saw you in your colorful
butterfly robe,
the one you wore.
You kissed me
after you scolded me.
I wanted to wash your hair and body
and you battled me.
After the water played with
your hair and
I washed your face
you were at peace.
The struggle ceased
and you remembered 
once again
that I am your girl
the one you held,
the one you loved.
I am floating in my dream
on a cloud searching
for the peace we had
after the storm was gone. 

8/26/14 is five years since my mom passed. I have missed her every single day, my heart pierced in pain. 


  1. This is a touching poem filled with love, pain and loss. May you find peace as you remember all your special moments with your mother. She lives on always in your heart, your memories and in your words.

  2. Your achingly beautiful accomplishment touches me deeply. What a striking woman-

  14. What a beautiful account of your mother.. to miss someone for a long time can be painful, but still I feel she's still with you.

  15. ah...mothers are touching Ayala...

  16. must be the time of the year to think of those gone... wrote a piece about my dad after a dream... he's gone over ten, but ever in my heart

  17. The memories linger on. One tends to have more to give the one person that steered us through good and trying times.Great lines ayala!


  18. I emphasize with you. There are some people in our worlds that are irreplaceable. You will eventually get used to the pain. Irrelevant of beliefs where they go. A nice memorial write about your loved one.
