I do honestly believe that people enter our lives for a reason. That everyone who we meet, who forms an impression has something to teach us. Everything that happens to us is an experience, and because of that it can never be bad. an experience can only be good because it all serves to shape the person that we are, the person that we become. -= the love whisperer =-

[NightReading] Our Fear

The dead are gentle to us

We carry them on our shoulders
Sleep under the same blanket

Close their eyes
Adjust their lips
Pick a dry spot
and bury them

Not too deep
Not too shallow.
