As the Sun rises,
birds pecking the Earth
grazing on an early meal.

Serenity is bliss!
And nothing is unfathomable.
Human, you are. One life, you get.
Mistakes will be formed,
But persevere.

Unearth Wisdom!
Banish the negativity, force it to flee.

Pushing forward is laborious...
This journey wont wait.
So seize it at every juncture!

My Maid of Honor Poem!
Will you (continue to) help me find my perfect dress?
Will you (continue to) help me through all my wedding stress?
Will you be my counselor, stylist, hostess, interior decorator and taste tester?
Will you let me decide your dress even if it was polyester? (I would never let you wear polyester)
Will you hold my dress up when I have to pee?
Will you dance the night away with me?
Will you help me coordinate my bachelorette party and my perfect wedding day?
Will you (continue to) be my best friend in every way?
Will you help me with boring things… even a ridiculous task?
There’s one more thing I need to ask
Will you be my MAID OF HONOR?

Okay, so, I'm not going to post the whole poem, but it's a 20 line, 3 verse poem.

To you world

Sometimes I wish I could lay and sleep forever
But forever is a long time and I have so much to do and see
I want to travel the world, and read so many books
I want to be happy, I want to be free

I never expected you to understand me
Because you’ve never looked, and you’ve never cared
But in the end my darling
That’s something I can bear

I will delay my sorrow
And I will live to do it all
I will free myself from the pain in my heart
But I ain’t never gonna be dull

(is not much but I tried and english is not even my mother language)

Nepažįstamojo atspindys

Pirmą kart tave išvydau stiklo atspindy,
Tai vaizdas kuri lyg šiol nešiojuosi širdy.
Kai pažvelgiai į mano veidą
Mūsų žvilgsniai susitiko tarsi pasiklydę vaikai.
Gatvės šviesos mirgėjo tavo akyse,
Ir kažkas tyliai užsimezgė mumyse.

Norėjosi griebti už rankos tavę,
Bet tu praėjai pro mane
Ir tavo atvaizdas išnyko lango stikle.

Aš galiu eiti per ugnį ar namo stogais,
Nebaisus man nei aukštis nei liepsnų takai.
Tenoriu dar kartą išvysti tavę,
Paskęsti tavo akių žalume...

Absent Anthology

I know I left you
Floating around the house somewhere
And now, when I need
Words of comfort,
Of wisdom, of delight -
You are absent.

Perhaps
There is some dark corner
Where dustmotes are exulting to a
Well-turned phrase;
A generation of mice
May view the world differently
Transfixed for a moment
By 'le mot just'

But I, having set aside your wonders
Can merely sit in this silence
And fail to dream.
