Dance like a bee.
Read in the library.
Drink tea.
Sleep under a tree.
Be a fairy.
Watch the sea.
Marry Mary.
And do whatever makes you merry.

*But please don't tell Cherry.
Darling, thank you.
Your love had made me
                sane.
But please forgive me
for sanity had never been
my
       favorite
                       cup
                               of
                                    tea.
Love
is just a passing summer day,
euphoric
but was never meant to stay.
When you find the one,
          all the hours, days
          and years before
          cease to exist.
It's a birth
          of a new star
          with your names
          written in it.
Hope turns to desperation.
    You waste your pennies and wishes
    on a well gone dry.
Funny how we both
    don't believe in forever
but here you are
    lying with  me
    on my death bed.
After 50 years,
    we're still together

*and maybe even after death.
You loved me when
   I was loved by everyone else

but when I was lonely,

*you only made me lonelier.
