today i got new ink.

ink for my sweet precious cooper.
ink to honor.
ink to remember.
ink to heal.

it is permanent.
just like his absence.
it hurts.
just like my heart.
it is swollen.
just like my eyes after shedding tears.
it has been a long time coming.
just like my healing.

it is a reminder.
that he is always with me.
that he gave me so much.
that i am lucky to have known him

and it is cathartic.


  1. That is so beautiful. I got such a shock when I saw it as I've always planned the same and just haven't been able to bring myself to do it.
    How bad is the physical pain?

  2. What a perfect, exquisite choice.

  3. after hearing about it way back its so fun to finally see it -- its beautiful and touching all wrapped into one!
