Give All to Love....

Give all to love;
Obey thy heart;
Friends, kindred, days,
Estate, good fame,
Plans, credit, and the muse;
Nothing refuse.

'Tis a brave master,
Let it have scope,
Follow it utterly,
Hope beyond hope;
High and more high,
It dives into noon,
With wing unspent,
Untold intent;
But 'tis a god,
Knows its own path,
And the outlets of the sky.
'Tis not for the mean,
It requireth courage stout,
Souls above doubt,
Valor unbending;
Such 'twill reward,
They shall return
More than they were,
And ever ascending.

Leave all for love;—
Yet, hear me, yet,
One word more thy heart behoved,
One pulse more of firm endeavor,
Keep thee to-day,
To-morrow, for ever,
Free as an Arab
Of thy beloved.
Cling with life to the maid;
But when the surprise,
Vague shadow of surmise,
Flits across her bosom young
Of a joy apart from thee,
Free be she, fancy-free,
Do not thou detain a hem,
Nor the palest rose she flung
From her summer diadem.

Though thou loved her as thyself,
As a self of purer clay,
Tho' her parting dims the day,
Stealing grace from all alive,
Heartily know,
When half-gods go,
The gods arrive.



*** I first read this poem when I was 13... now, I am .. hehe.. just another grumpy old man (GOM) but it's better to be a GOM than a CONfused Old Man (okay... let's stop them acronym game same.. hehe!).... but today I thought of this poem soem... by Ralphie Waldie Emersoney!

I always thought I could live my life all by myself (without your help!) but now I feel that love is above all them circus acts... I may die broke, I may not fulfill my dreams but I will fight for my love because there is nothing higher than loving someone more than life itself!


Wooaah.. I didn't know I could be so cheesy... maybe it's because I lob cheesecake (used too.. helps when your sister has a bakery kya...) but now I can't get enough of her double chocolate cake sake (not the japani raksi ni feri!)!

Well, my good friend Derek once told me that "it's always good to end a paper with a quote. He says someone else has already said it best. So if you can't top it, steal from them and go out strong."
