Alone by Edgar Allan Poe                    
From childhood's hour I have not been                   
As others were; I have not seen                     
As others saw; I could not bring                      
 My passions from a common spring.                    
 From the same source I have not taken                       
My sorrow; I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone;
And all I loved, I loved alone.
Then- in my childhood, in the dawn
Of a most stormy life- was drawn
From every depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still:
From the torrent, or the fountain,
From the red cliff of the mountain,
From the sun that round me rolled
In its autumn tint of gold,
From the lightning in the sky
As it passed me flying by,
From the thunder and the storm,
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view.

When I was in England (like 2 months ago) we stopped at some church, in Liverpool I guess, and from some strange reason I went to its shop. I'm not 'believer' in any way so it must have been my curiosity what lead me there. I didn't have any intentions to buy something at first, but I saw them:) There were those little card prayers which you can keep with yourself anywhere you go:) I went through them and bought one I liked the most. It's kinda sad but still beautiful:) I thought I'd share.

I Am Not There

Do not stand at
my grave & weep
I am not there.
I do not sleep.
I am a thousand
winds that blow
I am the diamond
glints on snow.
I am the sunlight
on rippled grain
I am he gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in
the morning's hush
I am the uplifting rush
of quiet birds
on circled flight.
I am the stars that
shine at night .
Do not stand
at my grave and cry.
I am not there,
I did not die.

I was thinking about writing a fan fic when I first read it and maybe I'll do it someday. But if anyone is inspired by this, go ahead:) there's never enough good (*cough* CSI *cough*) fan fics:)
