Favorite Quote:
"Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you"
-Dr. Seuss

Far beyond the mountaintops
Is where my home did lie
Past the far-stretched fields of green
Where airplanes often fly

All I have
Is on my back
Adventure in my heart
Little did I know that night
I'd find my missing part

You watched me from the window
As I danced across the clouds
I stole a few shy glances but
To love was not allowed

Sixty-odd young minds
All ripe with winsome glee
Did board a bus that afternoon
Among them, you and me

Across the golden highways
Into the setting sun
We talked the endless hours away
As home-bound wheels did run

It grew colder with every mile
We grew further as the sun was rising
And when we reached the horizon line
Our spark had all but died

So I swore that I'd forget you
I promised I'd go back
And pretend that what had happened
Had been nothing but the past

But somehow you did find me
And I'm glad I was willingly seeked
For our bud of love soon blossomed
As a lovely flower at peak
