Even After All This Time




Even
After
All this time
The Sun never says
to the Earth, 
"You owe me."
Look
What happens
With a love like that.
It lights the 
Whole 
Sky.

fourteenth century poet Hafez

  2. Oh my goodness, that is absolutely beautiful. Thank you! I'm going to write it down and save it in a book where I will no doubt lose it but find again years down the road.

Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind.
"Pooh!" he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw. "I just wanted to be sure of you."
~A.A. Milne
