I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars. — Og Mandino

COME, MAIDEN

     1.

Lay on my pillow,
lay your hips on silk sheets
You came on impulse,
to be cradled
you, moon of my night,
     
     2.

Who is this man who loves me so?
offering wine, candles, and bright eyes?
I will return to his bed,
this bear of a man

     3.

i followed my heart
and found joy
upon coming

— Abraham Menashe
