About bella685


It has been a long while since I have been on here, and much has changed in my life. I now create artistic graphics for a graphics memorial group and many of my designs feature my writing. This is a way for me to honor Katy''s memory while bringing comfort to others who are grieving. I will be sharing some of the work here that I have written for my graphic and hopefully soon I can complete another short story I have been working on.

First and foremost, I'm the blessed and proud mother of Katy, (my Angel Face and my One and Only). I'm a writer mostly of poetry, but also I've got a few short stories and other things that I'll attempt to share. I'm a lover of books, word games, trivia, things that make me think, laugh or inspire me, not necessarily in that order, with exception of the first two. I'm vastly deeper than a puddle, smarter than (most) 5th graders and loyal to a fault. I'm a trustworthy person who is friendly to all, an adversary to none.

I tend to be very shy and reserved, {maybe just a tad insecure}, but once past that, I have a warped sense of humor. While most of my writing is from personal experience and is an outlet for me to say what's on my mind that would otherwise be internalized, not all of it is.

As a way to honor the memory of my daughter, Katy, I dedicate all I write and post here to my beautiful, Angel Face, (her nickname from the time she was a baby). My love, until we meet again...may you dance like a ballerina, sing like an angel with those who awaited you and have all the cats your heart desires. Mommie misses you and loves you infinitely. 💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖

I Got My Wings Today

Though you cannot hold me, I'm with you anyway; God had special plans for me, I got my wings today.   I did not want to leave you, but no longer could I stay; My time on Earth was over and I had to go away.   I'll be watching over you, do not be dismayed; I'm safely up in Heaven, I got my wings today.   I love you very dearly, in so very many ways; We'll be reunited when you get...

I'm Here With You

I love you, Mom, don't shed a tear, Please know that I am always near.   I'm never farther than a thought away, I'm with you every night and day.   I am the kiss of the morning dew, I am God's creature that watches you.   I am the flicker of the lightning bug, And the evening breeze? That is my hug.   I am the twinkle of every star, To remind you that I'm never far.   So when...

Back To Me

You caught my attention right from the start; It wasn't long before you captured my heart; Years later, we've been through so very much; We've not had it easy, we've had it quite rough; We've both been stubborn; there's no doubt; Until recently it seemed we could work it out; No matter the depth of my feelings for you, If you don't feel as deeply, there's not much I can do; There's...

I Shall Not Know

We had a connection from the start;  You stirred the embers in my heart; The longing I'd buried deep inside, I no longer felt the need to hide; But alas, we were not meant to be; so I gave you up and set you free; We both moved on and went our way; Tho' I've thought of you since that day; I've sat and pondered now and then, what would happen if we met again; The answer to this I shall...

Once Again

You were the sun that burned my skin because I trusted once again; Your words were like stars that fell from the sky,  Only you know how often you uttered a lie; With your smooth talk and promises, you had me believing; Though I realized too late you were only deceiving; But I can't really blame you; I should have seen from the start, You were only an actor, playing a part; When you...

A Different Spin

Broken heart yet again, same old lies with a different spin; Hopes and dreams kept on hold, after all that time it grew old; To think I'd loved you all those years, pushed aside all my fears; Of never having your love returned, another painful lesson learned.  ...

The Little Girl With The Inquiring Mind

As children often do, Katy always peppered me with any question that popped into her mind and, most times, it was the standard, 'why is the sky blue?' type question. One particular evening though, Katy asked a question that, not only brought a good laugh, but that will remain in my memory forever. At the time, Katy was seven years old; She and I had gone to a local sit-down restaurant...

Recommended Read A Final Poem For Mommie

What is dying Mommie? Will all of me cease to be? Of all that I am and all that I've been, Is there nothing left of me? I believe in Heaven Mommie and think that's where I'll be. When you come Mommie, please try, oh try and find me.    I am not sure exactly when Katy wrote this heartbreaking poem and only found out about it today, (6/27/17). My mother discovered it in Katy's room about...

I feel you moving with me;  In my arms you slowly kiss me; In my ear, you softly tell me,  How much you really miss me; Then I reach for you, my sweet,  And find that you're not with me; It's just another dream of how it ought to be.   ...

A Birthday Tribute For My Angel Face

32 years ago today at exactly 5:16 pm God blessed me with a beautiful, healthy 6lb. 9oz, 19" long angel. I named my angel Katherine Elizabeth. She was called Katy from the beginning unless she was in trouble, (which wasn't often), then it was her full name. The look on her sweet face when she heard this was comical in the fact that she couldn't believe what she was hearing and would...
