only let me sleep briefly

Now marks the start of the fourth year of her new journeys.

"take me out of this battlefield,
let my old wounds be healed.
Don't want to see, no, no more dead:
I don't need all this bloodshed,
just want to go To The Stars.
We'll go together, leave this place,
go out flying, into space.
Forget it all, we'll start anew,
we will get a different view,
for we'll be looking To The Stars.
Only let me sleep briefly, only for a minute, two, or three,
let me briefly slip away;
it will still be okay,
we'll still be going To The Stars."

-excerpted from "the first song I've ever written."-

::: ::: ::: :::

:-Moonlight Dancer-:

I twirl
and the white skirt swirls
around me
rising into the air
a gentle cloud.
Dark beckons
and I dance
into the night
dance under moon and stars
feet stirring grass
damp with dew
arms raised to heaven
swaying, dancing:
music swelling in my ears
as I dance
in moonlight."

-Song from age 14, poem from 13.-

"there is good in the world, and there is beauty in the world."
-from an LJ entry in 2007-

And in the final hours, Cassie wrote to her:

"Do what you can to make this time your own, because it is."

Cassie was 14 at the time. But this advice is ageless.

"arms raised to heaven... I dance outside into the night."

May her life be for a blessing.

Me too.

Staring at a photograph and my Woorden von Hoop book across the room. Her life may have been short, but it was not a wasted one. Miss her.

Creating a photograph is an act of love.
Which many of us know.
Especially we three.

Your icon. Wow. I miss her too.

Can't take credit for the icon, but I do very much love the photo. It's a real memorial that was set up this week three years ago by 'fortheluvoftea' off-road in Colorado.

Echoing everyone else. SFM.

With her LJ finally purged, it's almost like she never existed... I want to change that!

She was important. So fucking important to me. She literally kept me alive!

I won't let her disappear!

And therefore, she won't. She's alive in your heart also.

I can't believe it's been three years...she is still so vivid.
Apr. 14th, 2011 12:19 pm (UTC)
As she will always be for her Friends who hold her openly.
