regardless of the temperature of the heart.

Average Days

Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want more than all the world, your return.
~ Mary Jean Iron

Autumn Days

When autumn days remind us that the summertime is gone
And the shadows show the sun is on the wane,
It seems so easy to forget that life continues on
As we revel in our strolls down mem'ry lane.
But then I stop to reason that living knows no season,
And realize our numbered days are few.
That's why I don't recall if summer skies were gray or blue
But live each lovely autumn day with you.
~ Francis Stroup
