VALENTINE ~









THE BIG HUG


Live long enough and you may see
Those you loved and who didn't love you —



Heroes, fantasies, icons, dreamboats, filigree
All disappear, never-were, something about a big imagination



While those you do love and they do love you
They also disappear, here today gone tomorrow, poof



So now you know what to do






for Susan

Nice wise poem. By Heart arrived on Valentine's Day. Spent the day in the snow with Rachel and the boys, pulling them in a sled down to an old barn and taking family photos, bright faces and high adventure.

That is to say, it arrived for Valentine's Day. Yesterday was our glorious day.

Nothing like perfect timing, Mike, mostso when you weren't even aiming!

Glad to hear all is in hand

Gorgeous, Bob! (Not be confused with Gorgeous George.) Funny that we all know what to do and do it less often than we should. Wise, indeed....
