the invitation

It doesn’t interest me
what you do for a living.
I want to know
what you ache for
and if you dare to dream
of meeting your heart’s longing.

It doesn’t interest me
how old you are.
I want to know
if you will risk
looking like a fool
for love
for your dream
for the adventure of being alive . . .

I want to know
if you can live with failure
yours and mine
and still stand at the edge of the lake
and shout to the silver of the full moon,
"Yes,"

. . . It doesn’t interest me
who you know
or how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand
in the centre of the fire
with me
and not shrink back.

It doesn’t interest me
where or what or with whom
you have studied.
I want to know
what sustains you
from the inside
when all else falls away.

I want to know
if you can be alone
with yourself
and if you truly like
the company you keep
in the empty moments.

Rolex feels that because they put so much rolex replica sale effort into recognizable designs and brand DNA, having all types of different designs out there will damage their image, create customer confusion, and degrade from a look and feel that they have groomed for their products. In other words, rolex replica sale puts a lot of time and effort into how their watches look and wants to make sure that when people see a rolex replica uk on someone's wrist, they receive the high quality experience that people associate with the brand. The second reason why Rolex doesn't want replica watches uk companies to customize their watches is sort of related to the first, and is more specific in regard to the quality of parts and legibility. In addition to Rolex replica watches sale wanting people to "know a Rolex when they see one," Rolex replica watches uk wants to make sure that people's perception of their product development and finishing standards are consistent.
