lexicographer


who gathers these words for us
and tells us their meaning clear

who says a moment is a moment
and a year a year

i will coin my own words now
and to my heart hold them dear

i'll call 'her' the 'smile'
and her 'memory' the 'tear'

Adi!
That was so beautiful...
"I'll call her a smile and her memory a tear"...
Don't think I could praise you enough for those beautiful lines

Regards,

MM

Velu: thanks. not as good as u though.

Pheebes: u won't let me stay on the ground ;)
