WHY DO SALMON SWIM UPSTREAM

WHY DO SALMON SWIM UPSTREAM

I know the touch of love
and the passion of an embrace
for I am fire
burning embers of life's desire
I don't want to feel
your sad caresses.
I don't want your voice
to speak its tears
or your embraces hold my fears..

let your heart tell me
tomorrow
and hold me close
when tomorrow never comes.

I am fire
I am passion
I know the touch of love.
don't let me see my dying
in your eyes
let me live illusion's lies.

Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

Some behaviours are programmed. The lemmings too fling themselves over cliffs
Black widow spiders.
Nice title for it

Yes. I guess it is all in the jeans.

because these are al part of being human and clinging to life.
Am on my way this morning for a new series of lower spinal infusions to ease the pain. I also chose to have surgery to alleviate kidney problem. The risk of going under is worth it. No surgery for PD-I wouldn't make it off the table.

love to my Jayne
