The Lover's Gift

I am the lover's gift; I am the wedding wreath;

I am the memory of a moment of happiness;

I am the last gift of the living to the dead;

I am a part of joy and a part of sorrow.

 

But I look up high to see only the light,

And never look down to see my shadow.

This is wisdom which man must learn.

 

- Khalil Gibran
