We cannot shine like the sun,
If we do not surrender to the warmth of love,
We can not experience the stars,
If we do not shine a light where darkness resides.
We cannot swim the ocean,
If we do not understand the depths.
We cannot climb the mountains,
If we do not embrace the small stones beneath our feet.
We cannot smell the aroma of air,
If we do not water the roses in our gardens.
We learn the lesson or repeat the tears and keep burning the ideal of desire and passion.
It would be foolish to believe we are in control of how life will end.
“It’s when you just know that no matter what his daughter did, his life was over.”
For the robins in our lives …
