DEAR ME: "Even when your heart ..

How desperately we search for solace from what we lose, in what we have.

Even when your heart is breaking
your diamonds shine for you
Even through your tears
their light can still shine through.

Nothing lasts forever
not hopes, not dreams, not love
But the diamonds stay
and shine.

You'll find the women with
the most diamonds
are the most content
or the most lonely.

(written in 1991, sometime after the war)
