If I can stop one heart from breaking…” Emily Dickinson If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain; If I can ease one life the aching, Or cool one pain, Or help one fainting robin Unto his nest again, I shall not live in vain.— Emily Dickinson

Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.
Like the seeds dreaming beneath the snow your heart dreams of spring.
