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.

    A little boy was in a cemetery with his mother “Mommy” the boy asked , “do they ever bury two people in the same grave?” “Of course not, dear.” replied the mother, “Why would you think that?” “The tombstone back there said, Here lies a lawyer and an honest man.”

    A young lawyer died and was brought to heaven. Upon arriving the lawyer started protesting that it’s way to early for him to day, for he was only 32 years old, and there must be some mistake. The listening angel agreed that perhaps it was a mistake and agreed to look into it. After a few minutes the angel came back and said “I’m sorry sir but I am afraid there is no mistake, we calculated your age by how many hours you billed your clients, and you are at least 96.

    What's the difference between a good lawyer and a great lawyer?
    A good lawyer knows the law. A great lawyer knows the judge.

    A doctor and a lawyer are talking at a party. Their conversation is constantly interrupted by people describing their ailments and asking the doctor for free medical advice. After an hour of this, the exasperated doctor asks the lawyer, "What do you do to stop people from asking you for legal advice when you're out of the office?" "I give it to them," replies the lawyer, "and then I send them a bill." The doctor is shocked, but agrees to give it a try. The next day, still feeling slightly guilty, the doctor prepares the bills. When he goes to place them in his mailbox, he finds a bill from the lawyer.

    A farmhand consulted a lawyer. He had long tended the late farmer's cows, and believed they would his when the farmer died. Now the farmer's son claimed ownership.
    "I'll take your case," said the lawyer, "Don't worry about the cows."
    The next day the farmer's son came in. The cows were raised on his land, he said, they should be his.
    "I'll take your case," said the lawyer, "Don't worry about the cows."
    Later, his secretary asked, "How can the cows belong to both?"
    "Don't worry about the cows," the lawyer said. "The cows will be ours."

    A vicar and a lawyer arrived at the pearly gates, Saint Peter greeted both of them and gave them their room assignments.

    "Vicar, here are the keys to one of our standard units," he said, and then turning to the lawyer, "And for you, sir, the keys to our finest penthouse suite."

    "That is unfair!" cried the vicar.

    "Listen," Saint Peter said, "vicars are a dime a dozen up here, but this is the first lawyer we've ever seen."

    A plane has an engine trouble and the pilot instructed the flight attendances to sit the passengers down and be ready for an emergency landing.

    A few minutes later, the pilot asks to the flight attendance if everyone has sat down and be prepared.

    "All passengers have sat down and be prepared, Captain," she said, "except a lawyer that still hanging around and give his business ID card for everyone."
