Favorite Quote:
I get an afternoon
4 hours of your time
The clock is ticking
How could I possibly fit all I need
Into a single timeframe?

The navy night sky offers a bit of comfort
The shining stars glitter their condolences
The moon beams down its rays to show you that even in darkness, there is light

I know your tears are laden with hurt
From the harshness of reality
I know you can see the good
Through your blurry vision

Smiles of a stranger
Laughter of a child
Hugs of a friend
Whispers of a confidante
Kisses of a lover

They form the barrier between you and the world
They protect you from the scorching sun and the whirlwind storms
They keep you sane enough to realise
That you’re not in this alone

Let us help you, my dear
We’ve all been given a package labelled “life”
What’s inside- a gift or a curse?
Well, sweetheart, that’s for you to decide.
