Lilly Emery (6 - 13 -1966 / Hollywood)
The good, green earth beneath our feet,
The air we breath,
Be thankful that you don't already have
Everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don't know everything,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.
When love finds you hang on to it
Like true gold,
Love never gets old.
