This & That

By: Janet Lavergne

Once the candle burned.
I waited and I watched;
believed in all that you tried.
I wanted and hoped.
I did it all for you
and would have lied.
I gave you all that I wished
and sent you away
with a long dark kiss
on a journey that would
make you grow and learn.
Though it has been months,
the candle still burns.

Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart. ~ William Wordsworth

Writing is a struggle against silence. ~ Carlos Fuentes

Write your first draft with your heart. Re-write with your head. ~ From the movie Finding Forrester

Writing comes more easily if you have something to say. ~ Sholem Asch
