Days turn to nights,
I hunger for your sight;
Echoes of a silent kiss,
I draw it with my fingertips;
As I hug my pillow and smile,
How I wish that you were mine...

If wild my breast and sore my pride,
I bask in dreams of suicide,
if cool my heart and high my head
I think "How lucky are the dead"

- - - -Dorothy Parker "Mortal Thoughts"
But if you ever come to a road where danger
Or guilt or anguish or shame's to share.
Be good to the lad who loves you true,
And the soul that was born to die for you
And whistle and I'll be there

- - - -A. E. Housman
If I could take your troubles
I would toss them into the sea,
But all these things I'm finding
Are impossible for me.
I cannot build a mountain
Or catch a rainbow fair,
But let me be what I know best,
A friend that is always there.

- - - -Khahlil Gibran "A True Friend"
I walked beside the evening sea
And dreamed a dream that could not be;
The waves that plunged along the shore
Said only: "Dreamer, dream no more!"

Heavy and beautiful with some one else's child…
Would you still love me then ???

Beauty never slumbers;
All is in her name;
But the rose remembers
The dust from which it came.
