Farewell New York But Not My Loves


Farewell New York But Not My Loves

20120716-152721.jpgI’m leaving the only coast I’ve known. Abandoning the city that never sleeps without remorse,
like a father who dismisses his role, leaving his children behind.
This city I will not miss.
It’s hardness I will not miss.

But I will miss my loved ones.

Mami, a woman who loves me and her children fiercely and selflessly
She gave me her blessing,
Tears in her eyes
She will feel a part of her is missing

Sister, a woman who is strong while soft
Taking over the world
She believes in me and my dreams
She only wishes they come to fruition while remaining close

Nila, my Itty Bitty, my niece that I cherish as if from my very own womb
Her existence has changed my life
Her smile and laugh make life lighter
She is too young to know where Tia is, or understand where I am going

Cousins, who are more like sisters
We are all so different
Yet our bloodline is unbreakable
Because blood is thicker than water

Friends, people in my corner through changes, heart break, gain
The new that have surprised me, embraced me
Kindred spirits
Soul sisters
Soul mates
The old that have grown with me
Never forgetting the little girl I was
while rooting for the woman I have become

This is what I will miss
These people who shape my life,
who I am

They are my heart
They are the loves
That I will never abandon
