if you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion -Dali Lama
If you only love me now and again
Love me today
Love me tomorrow.
I you only think of me on occasion
Think of me when you need me
Think of me on the days that you have borrowed
in the winds that caress your cheek
upon the days when there are no words to speak.
When you need me, from time to time
Need me as the days grow shorter
Need me in between life’s fine lines.
When you love me
Just love me twice
Love me today
Love me as the skies begin to gray.
In between today and tomorrow…there are big bites of love! Relish the moment
a Rainbow Bucket List
In a lifetime of love like snowflakes…none being the same. Somethings are worth repeating.
i carry your heart with me
i carry it in
i am never without it
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling.
i fear no fate
for you are my fate,my sweet
for beautiful you are my world,my true
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;
which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
I CARRY YOUR HEART
I CARRY IT IN MY HEART
##I Carry Your Heart – EE Cummings
thunder comes up over the hollow and lays down in the street
circles my yard and peaks at my feet
I try to wake my loved one to make her aware
then I realize that beside me she lays…rumpled here and there
to stay at home or not
no matter… the thunder rounds herself up
she will always be near
But there is possibility in limited reflection.
Burdens on the verge of fevered detention.
spirits going bump in the night.
Occasional, end trails in sight.
Beautiful impostors flare up.
Along the line of pretense.
open a mythical gate.
well wishing has been down this road more than once.
Walking in ill-fitting glass slippers.
Stepping into the abyss for a promise of more.
A minister’s daughter…
Who cannot find an open door.
