The mummer of seagulls in my ear,
A memory of you with every tear,
The crashing of waves against the rocks,
Meeting you on these very docks,
I still long to hear your voice,
Wishing I could make a different choice,
The hurt I put you through,
The things I never meant to do,
The guilt of losing you,
My actions I can never undo…
Even though I still feel you near,
A replaying record I hold so dear,
I know someday we will meet again,
Until then I cherish your memory my friend.

My name is Rae Rose and I live in the Pacific Northwest. I have always, always loved stories. I love writing, reading, listening and imaging the words coming to life. My youth was not the happiest and it is not an exaggeration when I say stories saved me more than once.
Every story I tell carries a seed of truth. Mine and of those who were not able to survive. Every story is special and personal to my heart. It is my hope that you enjoy the stories and find comfort, love, and laughter in my words.
