*To Forget*

One hope.
A softly wing touching the soul.
The strings of love.
A melody played against the shadow of an inexplicable fear,
to forget about the chains of time.

The bond of trust,
where even darkness becomes merely a sweet calmness,
illuminated by the candles of trust, lit by the bluest eyes
shining through the nightly sky.
The food for survival.

  5. All our hopes and dreams rest eternally in the bonds of trust , for without trust we are alone and desolate , our heart is devoid of love , only in the bonds of trust can we love another

  6. The strings of love forever attentively plucked to sing in tune with harmony.. Trust which can flicker and die out in a moment as the candle flame is blown out and is extinguished, leaving us only the Darkness…. Hope is the food for survival, and let us never ‘forget’ to love.
