These are but vain attempts to express, by one who wears her heart on her sleeve. Words, much like love, can be ever elusive... ever frustrating... like trying to paint a million stories on a single canvass. If you will read, please do not ask. Just feel. Or at least try to. The meaning is, whatever you have felt to be there, or the lack thereof :)

For Gemma



You of sunshine and cheer
A mere rosebud in the garden of life
I wish you bounteous joy and luck In times of

vicissitudes and strife;
May your bubbling brook of smiles
Never dry up and be replaced by tears
May you manage to maintain your vibrancy
As you learn to face all your fears.
Youthful and refreshing always
As such may the years find you
And as you tread your way into this garden
May cynicism fail to corrupt you.
