"I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

"I want your Monday morning 
sleep soaked eyes 
dream drenched voice,
lazy bones 
‘five more minutes please babe.’
I want your Tuesday afternoon 
coffee break, 
glasses off, laughter on
‘just hold me for a while
it’s been a hard day.’
I want your Wednesday evening 
fingers through hair 
teeth nibbling nails 
neck craning, eye glazing 
‘this paperwork never ends’
I want your Thursday night 
drinks for two 
bones unbind 
muscles let loose 
flats, slacks, 
‘just me and you’
I want your finally Friday 
stretch soul smile, 
sun sipping light 
from the glaciers in your eyes 
fingers unfurl, hand extends 
‘c’mon babe, lets go wild’
I want your weekend. 
your movie marathon Saturday 
reading by the fireplace 
kissing in the blankets 
want your Sunday morning 
orange juice and pancakes 
white sheets, tender skin 
hair like the Fourth of July 
‘let’s not get out of bed today.’
I want your ordinary 
and your stress, rest, release
I want your bad day and that terrible night 
I want you drunk in my arms 
forgetting the place but never my name 
I want your lazy and your lonely 
and your fist full of fight 
I want you everyday 
in every way 
for the rest of my life."
