Happiness lies for those who cry,
those who hurt,
those who have searched,
and those who have tried,
for only they can appreciate the
importance of people who have
touched their lives.
"The rose speaks of love silently
in a language known only to the heart."
~Love's Soft Voice~
Love is vain and should be flattered
it requires sincere praise
if you wish to keep it
always glowing and ablaze
love, like any other flower
must be handled with great care
so it blooms eternally
love must play its sweet sonata
it cannot be stored away
it is life's immortal music
and most sought after bouquet
love's soft voice has magic power
for it reaches mankind's heart
melting hates stupendous glacier
giving happiness its start
love cannot be chained or sheltered
it must show itself to all
even silent love speaks loudly
when it hears a tender call.
~ Ben Burroughs ~
The heart is a wondrous thing:
there is room for so much love and caring
and yet it never runs out of room to love more!
"If you're really listening...
if you're awake to the poignant beauty of the world,
your heart breaks regularly.
In fact, your heart is made to break,
it's purpose is to burst open again and again
so that it can hold evermore wonder."
