i went to the mountain top
looking for inspiration
it was cold
martin wasn't there
neither a guru
nor a god
but there was
a dog
it gave me warmth
and a bird
it gave me hope
and the sun
it gave me life

i am happy

For those that have wondered and been concerned about me, I apologize for not leaving a sign of life. I have learned that depression is not an easy foe and maybe the best thing for me would have been to continue writing. However, my fingers and my mind would not or could not agree. 
A special thanks for MLM and Josie for caring.
