Farewell My Friend
It was beautiful as long as it lasted
The journey of my life.
I have no regrets whatsoever
save the pain I'll leave behind.
Those dear hearts who love and care...
And the strings pulling at the heart and soul...
The strong arms that held me up
When my own strength let me down.
At every turning of my life
I came across good friends,
Friends who stood by me,
Even when the time raced me by.
Farewell, farewell my friends
I smile and bid you goodbye.
No, shed no tears for I need them not
All I need is your smile.
If you feel sad do think of me
for that's what I'll like
when you live in the hearts
of those you love, remember then
you never die.
- Gitanjali Ghei PHOTO

- Hilary Clinton

Be avid.
Create apart from perfection.
Risk failure.

Touch excruciatingly.

Dance with your eyes closed.
Care.
Understand you die a little in every moment.
Be Enlivened

the more genuinely nurturing of others I am able to be.

but there is also compassion in heartfelt empathy.
