"The mind can calculate, but the spirit yearns, and the heart knows what the heart knows"
- Stephen King (via feellng)
"She has old eyes on her
young face. I expect to see
wrinkles when she smiles.
I expect to hear her voice
crack with age and use,
but it’s as smooth as
black coffee on a Sunday
morning. Her laugh is
stronger than wind chimes,
more like cymbals in a
high school band. Or
a trumpet at a veteran’s
funeral. Her hands are
steady and strong,
but her eyes are still
tired. Not like she needs
more sleep. Like she
needs more love. More
kisses. Less trouble.
Her eyes are the loss
of childhood."
