i have something to offer you
it's not very old, it's somewhat new
it can't be borrowed, but it's sometimes blue
it's only been given to a very select few

you can't buy it in a store
it's been known to open the door
it's the center, my life's core
and just when you think it's out of what it holds, there's more

so, here it is, it's no work of art
it's one piece, no moving parts
it's where life begins, and where love starts
you hold it now in your hands
                                        . . . it's my heart. . .
                                                                 . . . please be gentle. . .

Excellent Sven,

I hope they handle it gently*S*

 The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, not the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone believes in him and is willing to trust him with his friendship."

--Ralph Waldo Emerson

beautiful poem of devotion Sven...
only TLC for that kind heart of yours...
take care,jm

 The stars shine so bright, now's the time
I close my eyes - soft wind touch my face,
Cool sand upon the place where I once kissed you
And held you close.
Now I will reach for the stars...
Because Oh my love, that's where you are...
Though the storms of black night rage on
I still see your face
I still feel your lips on mine
And though my heart feels all alone without you
I still hear you sing to me
I still hear your voice on the sea...
vertical horizon
