Dream As You Live

Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today.

~ James Dean~

Making Risks

To love is to risk not being loved in return. To hope is to risk pain. To try is to risk failure, but risk must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.

~Howard Thurman~

Why Do People Die?

Why do people die?

My deepest agony.

Once it was natural,

today it’s personal.

Why do people die?

My pain, my sarcasm.

Once my life is perfect,

now it’s a complete wreck.

Why do people die?

Silly question I ask.

We knew all the answer.

Yet I painfully ask.

Why do people die?

Now feel my spirit break.

Missing her, missing him.

Why do they have to die?

He is an earthly warrior,
strong and bold within his soul.
Yet still a mere mortal,
his body suffers pain.

His battle has not ended,
much blood lost, but pride remains.
More trials still at hand,
sacrifices to face.

Courage will not desert him.
The cold may gnaw him tonight.
Wounds may ceaselessly bleed.
Then all will come to pass.

As dawn touches his sorrow,
night will soon come to an end.
He’ll rise again for war,
for his scars will soon mend.

The greatest treasures are those invisible to the eye but found by the heart.
~Maryanne Williamson~

No Goodbyes

The sun sets in the East.
Never good bye my friend,
tomorrow we shall see.
The sun will rise again.

A lovely page has turned.
Only the beginning,
never the end my friend.
A new tale is written.

Never farewell my friend.
Not good bye but good day.
I will see you again,
in my heart you will stay.
