Favorite Quote:
L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.

Let it sweep across your cheeks
let it show, let it breathe.
Hang onto your every blink of the eye,
feel the tips of you fingers
run down the galaxy,
trace the world with your heart.
Don't let go, don't let go.

The moonlight rains on you now.
And the beat of your thoughts
feels irregular and irrational.
Slow down, walk a little quicker,
before the stars go to sleep.
Don't let go, don't let go.

Kissed by air, your nose tingling
in the atmosphere of blue.
And the clouds still come through,
still paint the ceiling overhead.
Dance your way to the finickiness of it all.
Don't let go, don't let go.

The author's comments:
Sometimes, it's okay to hang on, even if it's just for a moment. There are things in this world that won't be missed again, like the wrapper of your favorite gum or a rose petal you had saved; but if it meant something to you, then you gave it a place to belong in - your heart.
