• "I see what you don’t. Write about things least spoken of. Speak less, listen more. Watch less, observe more. Know more by learning more. Attach less, detach more. Be seen less, remembered more. And believe that less is, in fact, more."
  • "Today, organs can get replaced but no one has found a replacement for lost trust, abandoned hearts, shattered souls and tears that flowed. Imagine that!"
  • "Life is not a straight line. It is a circle. See you a-round!"
  • If you do not wish to cross the bridge when you get to it go ahead, take a boat... either way, cross over, you will have to."

I Will Bring You Roses

“Oh sweet bitterness…
I will soothe you and heal you,
I will bring you roses.
I too have been covered with thorns.”
- Rumi

**********

I too have been covered with thorns…
The ones I broke to give you the roses…
Then I simply lay in the arms of pain…
And Oh how it cradled me as I slept peacefully…

Whoever says pain is hatred,
Has yet to feel the joy of a lover,
As he plucks each thorn from your Being,
Kisses each wound and whispers,
“Everything’s going to be alright…”
That is sure to soothe you, heal you…
Make you smile even in pain…
Now open the door, let me in.
I’m waiting outside holding your roses.
