Favorite Quote:
"We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are---
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield. "


Is the rose you picked not red?
My love, you hold it while you’re dying.
They watched it as it wilted.
If you only said you loved me... My heartbeat would be lying.

Scatter your fears among the stars.
Turn broken glass back into sand.
I can see my life in your brown eyes;
But I could never see the end.

Your love flows like a clear blue mountain stream.
Your face lingers in the sunlight.
He found it in the darkness;
And the rose he picked was white.
