Nemo me impune lacessit-"Nobody provokes me without punishment"
Amor laudis et patrise pro stipendie est-"Love of praise and of one's country are their own reward"
Portrait in the Night
The night sky opens
Stars shed their faint glow
I look up to see the constellations
And I see a face that I know
Your smile touches me through the heavens
The beauty of your eyes appears endless
I look away, then turn my eyes skyward again
Your portrait painted in the stars, I could not ask for less
It makes me realize that you are my world
On my mind, though far away
Then the vision fades in a colorful swirl
And I hope to see you again on another night, another day
