Love
saw me and said,
I showed up.
Wipe you tears
and be silent.
I said, O Love
I am frightened,
but it’s not you.
Love said to me,
there is nothing that is not me.
be silent.

The stars are reliable unlike any other thing in this crazy world.Leaves fall off the trees. Snow melts. Rain washes away all the things we wrote on the pavement. But the stars are relentless to shine. Relentless, relentless, they pull us right up there into the stories of their constellations.

“I flew back to tell you that I love you”

“You flew back just for that”

“Can you think of a better reason?”

I’ve got an angel
She doesn’t wear any wings
She wears a heart that can melt my own
She wears a smile that can make me wanna sing
She gives me presents
With her presence alone
She gives me everything I could wish for
She gives me kisses on the lips just for coming home…
But you’re so busy changing the world
Just one smile can change all of mine

2011-05-04 She  was his most beautiful and lovable problem and so he promised to solve her for life Q♥

2011-05-01 They talked on the phone while they lay face to face to bed, lookin into eachother eyes, just to bring back a lil bit of that falling in love feeling. Only this time he ran his hands along her face while they talked. He kissed the tears on her face as they rolled down her cheeks. He saw her smile as he was there for her, they way he used to hear it over the wire. He was strong and she was vulnerable in all her strength. They loved. ♥

2011-04-23 I cannot forget my mother, she was usually very busy all day long. But when sunset drew near, it was her custom to hurry with her tasks in order to receive my father. At the time we did not understand, and we would smile and even joke a little about it. Today I cannot help but call to mind the great delicacy of love that she had for him. No matter what happened, she was always prepared, with a smile on her lips, to welcome him. – Mother Teresa on family (excerpted from No Greater Love) Q♥

Kaskade & deadmau5 – I remember

Feeling the past moving in
Letting a new day begin
Hold to the time that you know
You don’t have to move on to let go

Remember turning on the night
And moving through the morning light
Remember how it was with you
Remember how you pulled me through

I remember

Add to the memory you keep
Remember when you fall asleep
Hold to the love that you know
You don’t have to give up to let go

Remember turning on the night
And moving through the morning light
Remember how it was with you
Remember how you pulled me through

I remember (x2)

Feeling the past moving in
Letting a new day begin
Hold to thetime that you know
You don’t have to move on to let go

Add to the memory you keep
Remember when you fall alseep
Hold to thelove that you know
You don’t have to give up to let go

I remember….

The harder I break, the stronger I need you to be. And you are.  The stormier it gets, I get, the steadier I need you to keep this ship. And you do. And this is why I am yours.  Q♥

Back off loneliness, and hello tenderness
I’ve been waiting for your call for so long
It must have been hard just to follow your soul
To stick to the road that your heart wants you to go
And as you slide through the door
with your morals on your sleeve
I think it’s time for all those morals to leave
So let’s get down and freaky baby
Let’s get restless baby, come on get crazy with me

And I said
When you’re loving me, I’m loving you
And I love your prowess in the things that you do
and it’s your flawless soul that bleeds my stone
and when you’re loving me, I’m loving you
and that’s when we’ve got it goin’ on

So many people think we’ve got it wrong
They’ll try to break us but we won’t play along
so let’s get down and dirty baby
Let’s get restless baby
Come on get crazy with me

And I said
When you’re loving me, I’m loving you
I love the prowess in the things that you do
And it’s your flawless soul that bleeds my stone
And when you’re loving me, I’m loving you
and that’s when we’ve got it goin’ on, oh goin’ on

I was so stranded
I was lost and abandoned
I needed another home
And you flew in my arms
You just flew right into my arms

And when you’re loving me, I’m loving you
I love the prowess in all the things that you do
and it’s your flawless soul that bleeds my stone
and when you’re loving me, I’m loving you
and that’s when we’ve got it goin’ on

When you’re loving me, I’m loving you
And I love the prowess in all the things that you do
And it’s your flawless soul that bleeds my stone
And when you’re loving me, I’m loving you
and that’s when we’ve got it goin’ on

It’s your flawless soul that bleeds my stone
And when you’re loving me, I’m loving you
and that’s when we’ve got it goin’ on

-Paolo Nutini (Loving You)

2011-03-14 It was 9AM, I was switching subway lines, in the hustle and bustle, I noticed a couple against the wall.  He was kissing her goodbye as if it was the last time he’s ever see her or the first he’s kissed her after waiting forever.  I looked backwards as I walked forward towards the stairs, smiling, in me, at them.  They were beautiful, they made Monday morning happy. Q♥

2011-03-13 She slipped her hand under the pillow to find his there waiting for her.  This is how they slept. Q♥

2011-03-7  A beautiful girl, frozen in the snow.  Thrilled that he saved her, she ran out of the car, so happy that she jumped into his arms to thank him.  He knew instantly, he had to know her.  Every single inch of her, inside and out.  This girl with the grey knit hat and mittens, a tight fit hoodie,  and boots above her knees.  And a smile and spirit that shone like the light of a full moon on clear summer night. Yes, he had to know her. Q♥

2011-03-02  Rumi’s The Guest House

The Guest House This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.

Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

2011-03-02  A beautiful couple sat side by side at small round table in Urban resto. The staff and other patrons were delighted and smiled by the playful chemistry between man and woman.  They were beautiful to watch. They smiled and laughed and she leaned into him, glowing.  It made everyone smile in the recognition of love & beauty. Q♥

2011-02-27  Let us not be driven to own love, but be lead by our love of feeling love.  Let us love for the sake of loving. Q♥

2011-02-19 Forever could never be long enough for me.  To feel like I’ve had long enoug with you.

2011-02-18 A girl with a white blouse and light grey babycut short sleeve wool pullover and tight blue jeans. Sitting on a bar stool, playing pool with a boy, a boy who’s chosen her.  And one night, 9 months later, after the rain, in the middle of the street she took his hand as he extended his, she chose him back. Meeting him, choosing him, is the best thing that’s ever happened to her. She is the Queen  of his Heart. Q♥

2011-02-14 Today I remember driving back from a night a out on the main, coming down St-Laurent, right at the corner of Mont Royal. A couple in a BMW pulled up beside us.  It musta been past 3AM, back in the days when I closed up the joints hehe.  The man was driving and she was sleeping with her head gently tilted his way, kinda leaning into him.  He leaned over and kissed her forehead. It was such a sweet moment.  You could feel the love pouring out of him for her.  My heart lit up because I knew one day, that would be me. Q♥
