in love with these words

"When it's over, I want to say: all my life
I was a bride married to amazement.
I was a bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.

When it's over, I don't want to wonder
if I have made of my life something particular, and real.
I don't want to find myself sighing and frightened
or full of argument.

I don't want to end up simply having visited this world."

-- Mary Oliver

Got this from an email from my FAVORITE artist/poet/woman, Sabrina Ward-Harrison. Go to her site here.
