"Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go."
- T.S. Eliot -

Friendship is a Priceless Gift that cannot be bought or sold,
But its value is far greater than a mountain made of Gold.
For gold is cold and lifeless, it can neither see nor hear
And in the time of trouble it is powerless to cheer--
it has no ears to listen nor heart to understand,
It cannot bring you comfort or reach out a helping hand
So when you ask God for a gift
be thankful if HE sends not diamonds, pearls or riches
But The Love of Real True Friends.
- Helen Steiner-Rice -


You may have thought Ihad forgotten, but I didn't
For a friend I never forget, others may but not I
Happy Birthday Pretty Lady


"Many things which cannot be overcome when they are together yield themselves up when taken little by little."
- Plutarch -


birthday wishes to someone who I considered a friend


I thought of the pretty lady today on her special day
and wished her a silent happy Birthday


as time passes lives change
feelings move shift like sand
times come to make a stand
emotions travel a wide range


When we carry the burden on our shoulders
our mind transfixed and trapped by it's being
we fail to be more than we are
and less than we can be


I think of the softness within the touch
the sharing sometimes too much
I ponder the thought of such


independence or liberation
flight from reality
faithless failing


Alone again
for how long this time I ponder
and when he returns
shall it be better or worse

Alone again
locked in my prison
thinking of where happiness may be
is it possible to find once more

Alone again
will she hold him tight
and keep him warm all night will he return?

Alone again
maybe this time I should turn
seek my own comfort
but from where and what source

Alone Forever
Is this to be my destiny?


Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not one bit simpler.
- Albert Einstein -
