"Love comforteth like sunshine after rain."

--William Shakespeare

An eternity

"...And the shadows fall away
From the room inside your heart.
Take a step and you will see
An eternity."

--from This Time by Anam

Westlin' Winds

"...Come let us stray our gladsome way
And view the charms of nature:
The rustling corn, the fruited thorn
And every happy creature.
We'll gently walk and sweetly talk
'Til the silent moon shines clearly..."

--Robert Burns


"I have fallen in love with you."
How easily those words fall from his lips,
but what is in his heart? Seamlessly
he slips away with no more than a promise
to return, but when? He says, "I'll call you."
But it is never certain when or if he will.
My heart is still--unmoved by him.
His acts belie his words; he is no friend
nor can he ever be. This must end, but how?
For in truth it never did begin.

Not time or opportunity...

"It is not time or opportunity that is to determine intimacy;--it is disposition alone. Seven years would be insufficient to make some people acquainted with each other, and seven days are more than enough for others."

--Jane Austen in Sense and Sensibility


"I had become, with the approach of night, once more aware of loneliness and time--those two companions without whom no journey can yield us anything."

--Lawrence Durrell
