Love and Death

May I find my blessings where they are:
Lost in the reverberating laughter of my childhood,
and hidden in the quiet moments when I held you in my arms.
Yet even as Fate scatters these fortunes to the wind
I have still to find the strength to say
Goodbye

Charles Coakley Simpson

  3. Because I am in a fun mood this night….my first thoughts after reading just the title and seeing the picture was oh how I would love to have that cleavage….and even die to have that cleavage….but as usual when I read your poetry…I am always touched by the depth it always has….lately it always makes me sigh a bit at the beauty of it….very nice…and yep…the picture too…hahaha
