Three passions

Three passions have governed my life:
The longings for love, the search for knowledge,
And unbearable pity for the suffering of [humankind].

Love brings ecstasy and relieves loneliness.
In the union of love I have seen
In a mystic miniature the prefiguring vision
Of the heavens that saints and poets have imagined.

With equal passion I have sought knowledge.
I have wished to understand the hearts of [people].
I have wished to know why the stars shine.

Love and knowledge led upwards to the heavens,
But always pity brought me back to earth;
Cries of pain reverberated in my heart
Of children in famine, of victims tortured
And of old people left helpless.
I long to alleviate the evil, but I cannot,
And I too suffer.

This has been my life; I found it worth living.

adapted – Bertrand Russell

The good life

The good life is inspired by love and guided by knowledge.
– Bertrand Russell

I love thee

I love thee, I love but thee
With a love that shall not die
Till the sun grows cold,
And the stars grow old…
-Bayard Taylor

If you fall in love

If you have love in your life it can make up for a great many things you lack. If you don’t have it, no matter what else there is, it’s not enough.
-Ann Landers

The slits on my Arms

At the traffic light
Of my life,
When you caressed my hair
And touched me
Through slits of my cherry shirt
With gentle silky finger,
As if there were a rose framed
In each small window on my arm —
I drank your sounds deep
Of awakening roses,
Light flowed sky blue
From your eyes
And flooded all
The shimmering tongues
At the source
Of my being.

A Red Red Rose

O my Luve’s like a red, red rose
That’s newly sprung in June;
O my Luve’s like the melodie
That’s sweetly played in tune.

As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in luve am I;
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
Till a’ the seas gang dry:

Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi’ the sun;
I will luve thee still, my dear,
While the sands o’ life shall run.

And fare thee weel, my only Luve,
And fare thee weel awhile!
And I will come again, my Luve,
Tho’ it ware ten thousand mile.

By Robert Burns

The Child In Him

I loved the child in him
so innocent and sweet
The mischief in his eyes
the blush upon his cheek
The tender way he spoke
that showed me that he cared
The touch of his warm hand
that gently touched my hair
The smiles that we shared
that filled my life with glee
For when I was with him
I found the child in me.

Everyone has their time

Everyone has their time
But why did yours have to come so soon?
There are so many people in the world
So why did God have to pick you?
They say things like this make you stronger
But how can that be?
I feel so weak inside It all feels like a dream
I didn’t get to see you
You passed away too soon
But I feel you watching over me
And someday I’ll see you again

Light of heaven

There’s magic in a Mother’s touch,
And sunshine in her smile.
There’s love in everything she does
To make our lives worthwhile.

We can find both hope and courage
Just by looking in her eyes.
Her laughter is a source of joy,
Her words are warm and wise.

There is a kindness and compassion
To be found in her embrace,
And we see the light of heaven
Shining from a Mother’s face.
