Favorite Quote:
"Unable are the loved to die, for love is immortality." - Emily Dickinson


Sunny days drift on by 

like little clouds in bright blue skies;

youth flashes before my eyes,

all I want to do is cry. 

 

I had fun each passing year, 

every moment I held dear;

now those times are almost gone, 

and I must learn how to move on. 

 

How does one outgrow their youth

while hearts are full and minds feel loose?

 

I suppose it's going to start someday:

the process of moving up and away.

 

Yet part of me will always be

the little girl who loves to dream;

I'll leave home, my past, my youth,

but home is my forever truth.
