I Love Life

Our life, we may shape and mold, It’s more precious, than all the gold. As we wake, there’s a shine, From our sun, the day is fine. With our family, life we share, They love us back, they truly care.

Those We Love

This Might Be The Most Beautiful Poem Ever Written

I’ve always loved reading poems. To find a great poem, however, is a difficult thing, especially in a market oversaturated with poetry books of all sorts that usually have nothing of importance to say.

Secret Flowers

"Is love a light for me? A steady light, A lamp within whose pallid pool I dream Over old love-books? Or is it a gleam, A lantern coming towards me from afar Down a dark mountain? Is my love a star?

If – Rudyard Kipling
