Favorite Quote:
If you live to be one hundred, I want to live to be one hundred minus one day, so that I'll never have to live without you. -Winnie the Pooh

Look out at the water
And just imagine
The better days ahead

Don’t worry about anything
It doesn’t matter now
Let’s just pretend

Turn away from me now
Because for you,
The sun still shines

Listen to my voice
Let me tell a story
You already know

Imagine this life
That lives in our dreams
Soon you’ll be asleep

So take a breath
And close your eyes
And lie down by the water

The author's comments:
This was written about the last chapter of the book 'Of Mice and Men'. I was trying to capture the peacefulness of such a painful moment.
(This was a very good book, I recommend it)
