This book is a collaboration of poetry written between myself and my sister, Cassie Lacrosse over the course of a several years. These poems were our way of communicating while she traveled and went on various adventures. I had them arranged in a scrapbook for her the year before she passed away and have felt really encouraged to move further forward with them. Throughout these pages you should find a variety of emotions, concepts and writing styles. They are written from many different stages in our life and really showcase some periods of growth, struggle, doubt, hope, etc. They’re all in here. I’ve found putting this book together to be extremely comforting and am a little reluctant to let go but, mostly, I’m excited to put our words out there. I have continued writing since she passed but still look through her old poems for inspiration and comfort. I am so incredibly blessed to have this to remember her by and am thankful for the opportunity to share my journey.
