My Rose No Longer

Published on July 2011

In my rose garden
There’s a special rose
The petals are smooth as satin,
and remind me of the good times
The thorns poke at my fingers,
and remind me of the bad times
The smell was so sweet-
Like the one who left me
As I am reminded,
I shed a tear,
Then as more tears shed,
I can no longer see my special rose

To start the day …. “Happy Father’s Day, Dad”!!


~~June 21, 2015~~ 


Today I honor my Dad, who is not here with me on the earthly plane anymore.

I have written a few things about him yet I don’t get tired of doing so.

My father was born in the small town of Juncos, in the Island of Puerto Rico in 1911. He came from humble beginnings and faced all the trials and tribulations that life threw his way.

His family was a large one. Many brothers and sisters. He was the oldest.

The stories I remember about that time as sketchy.

None of the siblings are alive at this time.

However, I do remember that he studied accounting. He immigrated to New York City in the early 1930’s (as many Puerto Ricans were doing) in search for the famous “American dream”.

He worked at anything he could find.

I remember that he worked as a bell boy for one of the hotels.

He sent money back home to help his family.

He made it possible for his brothers to go to college and become the successful engineers who started the

Rexach Construction Company“.

From his accounts and personal concerns, it seems that he was subjected to discrimination directed to many of the Puerto Rican immigrants, a feeling he felt for many years.

He met my Mother there and they married in 1934.

They soon returned to Puerto Rico.

They got settled and started the family.


My Dad was a wizard at finances.

I don’t know how he did it but he put both my brother and me through private school and also through college.

I went to medical school, completed my training and never owed a cent in loans.

Most of all, he taught me about life … not through conversations but through example. I knew he was very proud of me and what I accomplished in my life … he rarely spoke the words but he definitely showed me.

He wasn’t “touchy-feely” but he was always there.

I am who I am, I have what I have, I am where I am because of you Dad.

Today I thank you and honor you.

I miss you … I wish you were here still but such is life.

You live within me … in my heart, in my mind, in my memories, in my DNA.

You were and you are the best father a daughter could have.

~~Dance with my father again~~

Luther Vandross

~~Uploaded on May 18, 2010~~

This music video ‘Dance With My Father Again‘ is about a child who misses his dear father who passed away. Grieving for the loss of his father and feels the pain for his mother.


“Back when I was a child, before life removed all the innocence
My father would lift me high and dance with my mother and me and then
Spin me around till I fell asleep
Then up the stairs he would carry me
And I knew for sure I was loved

If I could get another chance, another walk, another dance with him
I’d play a song that would never, ever end ….

How I’d love, love, love
To dance with my father again”


We ALL are ONE!!


Thoughts for today, #164: “Expectation … Heartache”!!


~~May 26, 2015~~ 

Oft expectation fails, and most oft there

“Oft expectation fails, and most oft there
Where most it promises; and oft it hits
Where hope is coldest, and despair most fits.”



All’s Well That Ends Well (II, i, 145-147)

Shakespeare’s plot in this play involves a beautiful woman, Helena, who is rejected by the man she loves and will use tricks and cleverness to win his heart and hand in marriage.

In this scene, Helena has followed Bertram, her object of desire, to the king’s court in Paris. The king is suffering from a terminal illness, but Helena (whose recently-deceased father was a court physician) claims to have a cure, and seeks to treat him.

The king has doubts, of course – the thought of a woman being a doctor and suggesting a cure was unheard of at this time.

But Helena prevails through the skillful use of rhetoric, and the remark quoted here finally convinces the king to allow her to treat his illness, which she does, successfully.
