May Our Friendship Last Forever

May our friendship last forever;
May I sail upon your sea.
May we go through life together;
May there always be a "we." 
May I be your endless sky;
May you breathe my gentle air.
May you never wonder why
Each time you look for me, I'm there. 

May we be for each a smile
Like the warm, life-giving sun;
Yet when we're in pain awhile,
May our suffering be one. 

May we share our special days,
The happiness of one for two;
And if we must go separate ways,
Let my love remain with you.

~ Nicholas Gordon


But For The Truth

"Wisdom wears an indigo jacket. She takes long walks in the purple hills at twilight, pausing to meditate at an old temple near the crossroads. She was sick as a young child so she learned to be alone with herself at a young age.
Wisdom has a quiet mind. She likes to think about the edges where things spill into each other and become their opposites. She knows how to look at things inside and out. Sometimes her eyes go out to the things she is looking at, and sometimes the thing she is looking at enters through her eyes. Questions of time, depth, and balance interest her.
She is not looking for answers."

~From "The Book Of Qualities", by J. Ruth Gendler
