Garden in the sky
"Silently, one by one,
in the infinite meadows of heaven,
blossomed the lovely stars,
forget-me-nots of the angels."
--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
friend is another self,
as though a part of me I put aside,
was suddenly recalled.
And, the missing piece replaced,
I am whole once more.
"The friendship that can cease has never been real."
"What a great favor God does to those He places in the company of good people!"
-Saint Teresa of Avila
"Friendship is the source of the greatest pleasures, and without friends even the most agreeable pursuits become tedious."
--Saint Thomas Aquinas
