“Life is but a day:

A fragile dewdrop on its perilous way
From a trees summit”

~ John Keats

“I sit beside the fire and think
Of all that I have seen
Of meadow flowers and butterflies
In summers that have been

Of yellow leaves and gossamer
In autumns that there were
With morning mist and silver sun
And wind upon my hair

I sit beside the fire and think
Of how the world will be
When winter comes without a spring
That I shall ever see

For still there are so many things
That I have never seen
In every wood in every spring
There is a different green

I sit beside the fire and think
Of people long ago
And people that will see a world
That I shall never know

But all the while I sit and think
Of times there were before
I listen for returning feet
And voices at the door”

~ J.R.R. Tolkien

 When I was a child,  God  was the bearded Man you taught me & they taught you,  But now I know my own mind and this; God  will always be you  Mom & Dad.

♥ Thank you, Dad and Mom for everything ♥

In our hearts, memories and in our cells. be afraid no more of the dogma that created both sin and fear, that helped to create the Man that locked you into the dark…

Rest in peace, light & love, Dad.

“To terrify children with the image of hell,

to consider women an inferior creation—

is that good for the world?”

Held a Jewel in My Fingers
I held a jewel in my fingers
And went to sleep
The day was warm, and winds were prosy
I said, “Twill keep”

I woke – and chide my honest fingers,
The Gem was gone
And now, an Amethyst remembrance
Is all I own

Emily Dickinson
