long enough

Leva-se um minuto na vida para reparar
numa pessoa especial,
uma hora para apreciá-la,
um dia para amá-la,
e uma vida inteira para esquecê-la.
It takes but a minute in life to notice
someone special,
an hour to treasure them,
a day to be fond of them,
and a whole life to forget them.

William Blake's

The Divine Image

To Mercy, Pity, Peace and Love
All pray in their distress;
And to these virtues of delight
Return their thankfulness.

For Mercy, Pity, Peace and Love
Is God, our Father dear,
And Mercy, Pity, Peace and Love
Is man, His child and care.

For Mercy has a human heart,
Pity a human face,
And Love, the human form divine,
And Peace, the human dress.

Then every man, of every clime,
That prays in his distress,
Prays to the human form divine,
Love, Mercy, Pity and Peace.

And all must love the human form,
In heathen, Turk or Jew;
Where Mercy, Love, and Pity dwell
There God is dwelling too.
