It is the knowledge of our genuine condition of our lives that we must draw our strength to live and our reasons for living.

Simone de Beauvior (January 09, 1908 – April 14, 1986)


Gone by Tao Writer

Gone from sight
but not from memory.
In my mind,
a picture of you remains.
Although, now,
more than a body,

I cannot touch you.

Although,
much more than a vision,
I can not see you.

If your appearance
is in any way

diminished by my
lack of senses.
It is in me, not in you,

where the imperfection lies.
