La Herida de Itzel

Oil on canvas, 2017, 64"w x 64"h x 1.5"d

When I heard that you weren’t feeling your best,
Many memories fluttered deep inside me,
We grew up together, played at school together,
I didn’t know what to say, or how to react,
I closed my eyes and prayed, tears fell, my heart swelled,
Butterflies are your favorite, so is the color purple,
Your journey has been long, and at times you just want to give up,
But remember, you have to be strong, your children—they’re young,
The family and I, we are all at your side, some too close and some too distant,
But no matter what, we all love you.
