"....have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

You made me laugh, you made me cry, you taught me how to weather every storm, you stood by me when there were none, you moulded me into the person I am today, you made me discover a part of myself I never knew existed, you kept me alive and now we are hitched together for life! I owe you - Thank you 'Poetry'!!! We've come a real long way and I want to thank you for sharing this journey with me! 

Here's to my 75th Poem :

I hear you
Ever so often
Before I awaken
After you've slept

I sense you
As senses soften
Before I arrive
After you've left

My listening erratic
In a way static
I shudder whimsical
You reminisce quizzical

You never change
Time makes you strange
Your quietude finds
Every vicissitude that blinds

You are the only sound
I cannot hear
You are the only voice
I feel by choice

Moments of pleasure
Instants of hurt
In every crevice of rapture
You leave a lesson curt

You walk away
Reminding me of your absence
You come back
Implying every second of your presence

Everytime you break
Into the stillness of the night
In you I rake
The answers that are right...
