    This poem is my favorite of all time!! I just thought I'd share it with everyone. It has really touched me. In high school my choir performed a version of this to music. It was so beautiful!!

    "I am Not Yours"

    I am not yours, not lost in you
    Not lost, although I long to be.
    Lost as a candle lit at noon
    Lost as a snowflake in the sea.

    You love me, and I find you still
    A spirit beautiful and bright.
    Yet I am I, who long to be
    Lost as a light is lost in light

    Oh plunge me deep in love -- put out
    My senses, leave me deaf and blind,
    Swept by the tempest of your love,
    A taper in a rushing wind.

    - Sara Teasdale
