Sophocles Poems


It is not the amount of time you spend
But what you do with the times that you have
It is not how much of something that you have
But what you do with what you got


Allow me to be the candle,
That holds high your flame of love.
The sudden quickness in your step,
After we dance the dance of love.

God's Love

Sometimes I feel as though God has abandon me.
But, God has Not!!
It is I who removed myself from His presence and
Wandered aimlessly into the dark.
