Lost in Absence
[Quinella Speaks]

please pray
           not lose
                 sight of me
through this
              absence of my
                                memory

though I知 gone
                   I知 really
                          near
though you might not see
                                    or feel my hear

but thy wind
             shall bring thee whispers
                                       forth
and I shall shine
                 east, west,
                         south, north

and might you think
                        I知 gone from
                                        view
why, look within
                 thy insight
                       of you

for I may have
                left a spark
                         behind,
common threads
               woven in your
                               mind

please don稚 lose
                    my memory,
                          e弾n though
I知 not here
             with thee

for soon
      I shall come
                 again
just think of
                an eclipse
                      seems long in
time
      but in short ellipse
                         for I shall
be round, and then

thou shall be
                 free to see
                             the smile upon
my lips
      for thee

=========================

when Quinella speaks ...
I hear the whispers of butterflies in the winds ...
and I am warmed by the spark ...
and I thank you.

oh you speak to me in riddles
and you speak to me in rhymes
my body aches to breathe your breath
your words keep me alive
~Sarah McLachlan~

Well not only was that done fantastically, but the insight within is timeless.  Our hearts can be warmed with whispers of the wind.  Beautiful.

I do believe we leave a lasting impression...whether it be good or bad...happy or sad...and sometimes the sweetness we deposit brings them back our way...to smile on another day...James

Thank you Sir Sven.....

Great epilogue / A whisper from beyond.

~ Some people are like a Slinky -- not really good for anything -- but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs. ~
