Favorite Quote:
“With freedom, flowers, books, and the moon, who could not be perfectly happy?”
― Oscar Wilde, De Profundis

You wish and hope, blinded by his attention.

Though harsh you crave, sweet light his dawn embrace.

I am ignored in a life complete by day’s duration.

You find your path by shadows fallen place.


When overhead his gaze is ever strong,

With melted wings you plummet like a stone.

As stars pursue their justice, he is gone.

No guardian should leave you all alone.


Near my earthly children, I have stayed.

Through dimmer light, my proudest smile relayed.

I wrote this for my mother. She's always there for me, as all mothers should be for their children.
