My heart I can not still it
Your heart I cannot fill it
If when your life is full
If where my thoughts of you are few

When we were one and whole
Soft and warm and near
Like wind we wafted high
Together saw the eagles fly

What fields, or waves, or mountains glimpsed
What roads, what paths, have we trod since
We look at love before and after
I smell, I feel, I taste the laughter

My pain is through, both lost and found
My feet since planted, firm on the ground
You pined, you grieved, like infants sleep
Soft, and light, and counting sheep

And now you come to me and sigh
You question, you wonder, and ask me why
I tell you it's not up to me
You talked, you walked, and now you're free


Cap.

...
Can you keep the bee from ranging,
Or the ringdove's neck from changing?
No! nor fettered love from dying
In the knot there's no untying.

         "Song"
         Thomas Campbell

Why thank you Elizabeth.   And everyone!

Actually, she did like blue eyeshadow.

CaptnCargo~
I really liked this line -

'You pined, you grieved, like infants sleep
Soft, and light, and counting sheep'

Nice reflections.
