First, let me say an humble "thank you" for your kindness and assurance of my being welcome here. I will try to be more contributive in the future. And Ruth there was no need for you to apologize, you said nothing out of line. i appreciate you folks.

With Every Single Breath

With every single breath I draw-
And every beat of heart...
I long to hold you one more time,
And hate that we’re apart.
I think of when the world stood still
And we were there together,
And made our foolish frantic vows-
“Eternity”! “forever”!
Passions flamed, and visions danced
Of Camelot, and all-
We were equally entranced,
By passions were enthralled.
And yet the stolid wheel of time,
Does on it’s journey roll-
And fate doth write our destinies-
Upon it’s ancient scroll.
And so it is, and so it goes-
But still I must confess,
I silently do breathe your name,
With every single breath.

This is beautiful indeed. Words that cut to the heart.
I'm glad you reconsidered.

I look forward to tomorrow, while looking back on the past. But today is the day I am living. And I expect it to be a great day!
