You must be she I was seeking )

I am not to speak to you—I am to think of you when I sit alone, or wake at night alone,

I am to wait—I do not doubt I am to meet you again,
I am to see to it that I do not lose you.

The trilling wire in the blood
Sings below inveterate scars
Appeasing long forgotten wars.

"Burnt Norton", T. S. Eliot

Fostered alike by beauty and by fear )

The ruling passion conquers reason still )

That which is only living can only die )

What might have been and what has been
Point to one end, which is always present.
Footfalls echo in the memory
Down the passage which we did not take
Towards the door we never opened
Into the rose-garden.

"Burnt Norton"
