As some of you might or might not know, Patch Adams rank as one of my favourite movies. My criteria for picking movies has nothing to do with how artsy-fartsy it is or how great the effects was or whatever.
My criteria for selection is that it's moving.. To be fair, I may not have seen all that many movies but this one truly moved me.
The poem recited by Patch Adams (played by Robin Williams) which was not recited in its entirety the first time round at the porch. But when he eventually managed to recite it, it was at her funeral..
It was so sad..

I found the poem
here it is

i do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrows of
carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be
in secret, between the shadow and the soul

I love you as the
plant that never blooms,
but carries in itself the light of hidden
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance.
risen from the
earth, lives darkly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or when,
or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or
so I love you because I know no other way

than this: where I
does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep

while looking for it
I had to click on this ONE link.. I didn't click on anything else mind you..
Inside, there's a reference to KT the asshole.. and it's just a sign i tell you..
