Sister, Brother

Without you little brother

What would I do?

Who would I sit with when I’m blue?

Who would I watch our favorite shows with?

Whose toys would I play with than destroy?

Who would I be jealous of?

Without you big sister

How would I fill my day?

No one to fight with

No one to hug

No one to laugh with then cry to

No one to tell me that all is OK

Sister, Brother we are as one

No one can break this bond

Today

Today is the day I change my life and see what there is to see

No more waiting

No more pondering

No more putting off

No more sorrow

Today is the day to start a new

To go after those things I cherish

To reach all the goals I set

To take the time I’ve talked about

To put my past behind me and

Let go of my regrets

Today is the day I’ve been waiting for

The day all my dreams begin to come true

In the Shadow of light

As we look behind us we see the darkness

We know not where it comes from.

Later we realize it’s the shadow of our selves.

We turn around straight into the light and realize that we are alive 

Fear not your shadow as it is only that of yourself.

Taken from The Complete Works of William Shakespeare: A Midsummer Night’s Dream”,

Act II, Scene II

Fai, Over hill, over dale,

Thorough bush, thorough brier,

Over par, over pale,

Thorough flood, thorough fire,

I do wander everywhere,

Swifter than the moon’s sphere;

And I serve the fairy queen,

To dew her orbs upon the green.

The cowslips her pensioners be:

In their gold coats spots you see;

Those be rubies, fairy favours,

In those freckles live their savours:

I must go seek some dew-drops here,

And hang a pearl in every cowslip’s ear.

Farewell, thou lob of spirits; I’ll be gone:

Our queen and all our eles come here soon.
