I heard what you said. I’m not the silly romantic you think. I don’t want the heavens or the shooting stars. I don’t want gemstones or gold. I have those things already. I want…a steady hand. A kind soul. I want to fall asleep, and wake, knowing my heart is safe. I want to love, and be loved.

I sit beside the fire and think
Of all that I have seen
Of meadow flowers and butterflies
In summers that have been

Of yellow leaves and gossamer
In autumns that there were
With morning mist and silver sun
And wind upon my hair

I sit beside the fire and think
Of how the world will be
When winter comes without a spring
That I shall ever see

For still there are so many things
That I have never seen
In every wood in every spring
There is a different green

I sit beside the fire and think
Of people long ago
And people that will see a world   
That I shall never know
—  J.R.R. Tolkien
What does it mean if you tried to get somewhere, and you didn’t?” “Like what?”
“Like if you were trying to get somewhere, but you couldn’t find it? Does that mean something bad?”
“No. It doesn’t mean something bad. It just means you have a second chance to do it. And two chances is always better than just one.
