This book is awe inspiring. I have never felt quite as accepted and full of hope as when i was reading this book. it makes love a simplicity but also a respected and necessary journey. i would reccomend this to all who have ever considered themselves in love. There is no exception to its brilliance.

Many people complain life never gave them any chances. We are given life we must take the chances.

It's interesting what we can find when we take the occasional closer look. I found three of the books in this series while glancing through the poetry section at a local Barnes & Noble, tucked next to a Norton Critical edition of Paradise Lost. I glanced through several of the writings in each, bought all three and had B&N order me the fourth.

This is one of a series of four books by the aut

I first discovered this book almost 20 years ago. From that moment, Javan became one of my favorite authors. I still have my very first copy. At one time I had all four of his books but I guess it's time to reorder.
As for my review of this book... It's timeless. Still brings the same tears it brought over 20 years ago. His message is true of so many of us (if not all). If you have ever loved, yearned for love, or lost love, this book is for you. We all have the need to be met half way.

Making relationships work is something that requires effort on behalf of both participants. This book of poetry conveys that very nicely.
" There have been times
When I needed you
But you were not there
And a few times
When you were there
There was no need
But that's all over-shadowed
By the times I needed you

And you were there"

Great series! These book are just up there as my favorite to have read about love in my early 20's! These books were written my a man and are great for both men and women to read. As a matter of fact everyone must read them. They are simply amazing!
