Best Poem of Sophocles

Allow

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.
Let me be the garden,
From which your flowers grow.
Or the forces that simply listens,
As you tell what you know.
Allow me to be the tickle,
That bring forth your smile.
Let others gaze upon us,
And know of our style.
The things that cause you to fear,
Let me wash them away.
Allow me to be that
Which makes your day.

Quality

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
It is not how much you give
But the spirit and value of the giving
Quantity Never Wins Over Quality!
