A MEMORY

There’s sadness
In your eyes, she said…
She led me by her hand
To her bed & moments of joy

I should have listened
When she said…
I don’t want you to need me
Too late…too good to
Try to understand

All we want is happiness
But until the moment arrives
There’s no directions you can use
You have to find bits of joy
As they come to you
Even if that’s all they are….

    Yes…living in the moment … no thoughts to tomorrow or yesterday … a very freeing way to be!

      The only time we can live in is now…we need to always remember that. We can hope and/or plan for tomorrow, but all we can do with yesterday is to learn from it or cherish a memory. Or write it off.
