Favorite Quote:
I'm sorry, if you were right, I'd agree with you. - Robin Williams

That breath of sweetness
Lingering in the air
Where once the lover stayed
Where once the music played
Now stands a sapling splayed.

That swell of emptiness
That engulfs a kingdom
Where once the blue-jay rose
Where once the forest froze
Now stands a ruined prose.

That waning glimpse of color
Echoing faded life
Where once the shadows danced
Where once the rainbow pranced
Now stands a fog entranced.

The obscuring shadow of things
That have since disappeared
Where once the laughter shone
Where once the gentle tone
Now stands a deathly moan.
