    Head Baltar:

    "Life is short, but the next one's not.
    Let your heart adrift, and your soul will get caught.
    Believe the lies, ignore the truth.
    Listen to me, I will show you the proof.
    Speak from your heart: say the things you know to be true.
    I have never loved anyone more in my life than I love you now."

    I love these verses, and Callis delivers them perfectly, I think.

    What I was wondering is if these are based on an existing poem or if it's all original.

    Hmm I don't remember the first 4 lines of that... I only remember him saying the last 2 and I didn't realise it was meant to be a poem

    I think it sounds like a poem, anyway. I'm not sure if it was meant to be one or if it's based on existing poetry.
