- a sentimental yearning for happiness of a past time

I hate nostalgia. No emo, kinda. haha
(refer to blog entry here & skim but emphasize on paragraph 6 here)

If Love Should Count You Worthy

If love should count you worthy,
and deign one day
to seek your door,
and be your guest,
Pause! ere you draw the bolt and bid him rest
if in your old content you would remain.

For not alone he enters: in his train
are angels of the mist,
the lonely quest,
dreams of the unfulfilled
the unpossessed,
and sorrow,
and life's immemorial pain.

He wakes desires you never will forget;
He shows you stars you never saw before;
He makes you share with him forevermore
the burden of the world's fine regret.

How wise you were to open, not!
and yet, how poor if you should turn him from your door.

If love should count you worthy.
