"Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from
you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in
quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may,
for it may not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the
earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise
my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return."
-Mary Jean Iron
