I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
And God forbid love ever leave you empty-handed
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens.

And if you get the chance to sit it out or dance
~~I hope you dance, I hope you dance~~



I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
And never settle for the path of least resistance
Living might mean taking chances, but they're worth taking
Loving might be a mistake, but it is worth making
Don't let a helping heart leave you bitter
When you come close to selling out, reconsider
Give the heavens above more than just a plassing glance.

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
~~I hope you dance, I hope you dance~~









Looking back on the memory of the dance we shared beneath the stars above
For a moment all the world was right
How could I have known you'd ever say goodbye
And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain
But I'd of had to miss the dance
Holding you I held everything
For a moment wasn't I the queen
But if I'd only known how the queen would fall
Hey who's to say you know I might have changed it all
And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end, the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain
But I'd of had to miss the dance
Yes my life is better left to chance
I could have missed the pain but I'd of had to miss the dance





What is success?

To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent people and earn the affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
To appreciate beauty;
To find the best in others;
To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived;
This is to have succeeded.

Ralph Waldo Emerson



i have to share what i am feeling, and this seems to be the safest venue to vent in. after 15 years QS and i are no longer seeing each other. and that is ok, coz lets be honest, real life does take presidence. but after that long a time, with words of love that will last forever, i am so confused by QS and his total ignoring of me. he does not return phone calls (which i can sort of see), but he does not even answer emails. my heart is broken. i dont understand.

and now i understand....he never loved me for how could a real love vanish so quickly?




As time passes, the pain from my heart is fading, and what is left is the realization that it does not matter if he loved me
what matters is how i feel, for that is what i can only understand
in the years with QS, i learned to love well...for each bit of love i felt, i would have more to give
i learned so very much, like all the state capitals, and considering i am canadian that is no easy task, learned about me...all of me...and appreciate the special qualities in me...learned how to be a better mother and even a better wife

so loving QS brought out the best in me...most people don't know the feeling of such love their entire lives...i was most fortunate
how can i be anything but thankful?
