The moment of the rose...

"The moment of the rose and the moment of the yew-tree
Are of equal duration."

                                       ~ T.S. Eliot, from Little Gidding

Poem about a brief life, "the days of wine and roses" (Ernest Dowson)

They are not long, the weeping and the laughter,
   Love and desire and hate:
I think they have no portion in us after
   We pass the gate.

They are not long, the days of wine and roses:
    Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for a while, then closes
   Within a dream.

                                               ~ Ernest Dowson

Forget Me Not

Forget me not, for I have lived and loved, mourned and grieved, and been joyous. Forget me not, for I am no longer of this earth, but of the spirit. Forget me not, for the Lord knows me, and I know the Lord. Forget me not, for I am.

Now the Lord is the Spirit... (2 Corinthians 3:17)

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

~ 2 Corinthians 3:17
