I was never consulted about my birth
Well I know it’s impossible but
Like a dreamer cosy in slumber
If asked I would have elected
To stay in bed instead

Rest in peace

    Your gift with thoughts and words is facinating. You are one of my most favorite poets... and they are few...

    It's true, David, we were not, and we are also not going to be consulted about when we will depart either. But one thing for sure is that it is love that brought us here. And that must come for something very worthwhile.:) Caroline. xx
