"Lonely Angel Dust" as written by and Laura Veirs....
The rose is not afraid to blossom
Though it knows its petals must fall
And with its petals fall seeds into soil
Why toil to contain it all?
Why toil at all?

Ice crystals form from flakes of heaven
Fall down weightless to the earth
To them it's worth the falling
Through atmospheres a-dawning
And open arms a-calling
To collect and protect all the raining
Insane from above
The lonely angel dust
The only angel does…

    General CommentI often think of this first verse and it helps me get a little perspective on things. It reminds me that not everything in life is under our control. We can't let that stop us from enjoying life. If only it would sink in enough for me to take some risks instead of always worrying about what might happen... maybe someday.
