    learn to let go

    and be born

    sometimes screaming

    into each moment.

    know that tomorrow

    you’ll long for today

    just as you now long for yesterday.


    in every nerve

    and in every corner of your heart

    the hunger

    for the good old days


    “Can you believe

    we did that

    were like that

    were there!”


    Live in expectation

    that perhaps everyday

    something or someone

    will cross your path

    and make you wince

    as they pierce

    your memories’

    thin seal

    and let the past flood out.

    doesn’t she look like...

    the way the sunlight touches every tiny speak of dust…

    how the sun shone

    that day

    in the garden,

    all day


    we never


    believed it would end.
