There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.

Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.

Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.

    On my cup there are drawn lots of little hearts, and I share it only with my wife, of course!

    Yes, I have a favourite mug, but I do not have any problems if someone of my family members uses it.

    Cups and mugs, no, but where is my bowl?

    Would it sound rude if I say that my favourite mug is my own "mug", @Lynne ?

    @April, I won`t have any problems, but if you are not around, how knows.....

    The next vote here could be about a toothbrush. In that case I am more than strict.

    Here`s a joke: A recently divorced man asked his ex-wife, how she had got over all the bad names he called her, whereas she replied, oh that was okay every time you called me those I used to clean the toilet with your toothbrush.

    That was the first thing that came to mind when I read the question, @Hermine . :)

    But as you know me, my answer has nothing to do with the question, it's not a serious answer, right? :)

    Yes. You can touch it but don't you dare to comment on it negatively. :)

    I have a beautiful Chinese tapestry mug. I like to drink coffee and tea in it. I think its not about only mug but your association with it and usually a mug presents your feelings and emotions like my two colleagues have mugs with their Zodiac signs and similarly another colleague uses a mug that was her birthday gift from her mother.

    The red is outnumber the blue again. It remind me about the battle between the jedi and the sith.

    @Hermine, you know that I meant "my face" when I said "my own mug", don't you?
    Another meaning of "mug"? :)
    That's why I apologized because I made a joke . :)

    A mug is a face saying it in informal English. I hope I do not look like a mug.

    @Bobmendez - You don't want to live in an aseptic bubble, do you?

    Nothing wrong at all @Hasti. I have my favourite bowl. (I'm French, so no mug, but a bowl.) I'm just surprised that some people like @Bobmendez need the infectious disease excuse to justify that he's got have a favourite mug. ;)

    I don't have any special mug, but we have a set of mugs which I'd rather have drink in them.

    @Zom , As I have running in my daily schedule, I should drink too much water and other liquids to replace the evaporated water of my body.
