  • I want to live in the moment
    Absorbed in the rich silence
    But I need to put the washing on and I forgot to ring the doctor

    I want to live in the moment
    Taking delight in the carpet of cherry blossom under my feet
    But my umbrella is broken and rainwater drips into my shopping

    I want to live in the moment
    Lying on the bed, listening to him with my heart
    But my painful body shouts for my attention, and I can't find my way back to us
