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

GIFT BASKET

I took parts of you after we parted
I kept your smooth skin,
I kept the silken hair,
I kept that warm smile,
As well as the muscles that once framed your shoulders

That’s what gives the shine to my eyes
No regrets here—my gift basket is full

— Abraham Menashe
