And Now …

She kissed me! at midnight,
  dreary and weary with her chemotherapy.
as we welcomed 2014, the new year.

Memories of accomplishments fade, 
  along with the praise of close friends.
Memories of conversations fade, 
  and the problems we discussed, 
    and the solutions on which we both agreed.
Memories of joy fade, even when they are shared.
Memories of pleasure fade, 
   even when they are exchanged with another.

Time is merciless to memories.
The past expires.
The future is at best, a wish, a candle, unlit or blown out.
Only 'now' withstands time.
  Now and forever, we pray.
    'Now' is forever.

    Hey there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to
    make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my iphone.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be
    able to resolve this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share.
    Appreciate it!
