What Is It?


I’m missing something,
but I’m not sure what it is.
When I came into the room,
I noticed things seem to be just out of balance,
but I’ve looked around
and I just can’t see what it is.
I’ve looked and thought.
Then I thought and looked.
But I can’t figure it out.
What is it?
What is missing?
What isn’t in its place?
Can you tell?
Can you see what’s missing?

It’s you!

The Memory


I have a memory
from a long time ago
when things were different,
not better,
not worse,
just different.
Sometimes I want to go back.
I know I can’t.

This Time

There are times in my life
for which I’ve had great regret.
I suppose we’ve all had those moments
when we think, “If only ....”

I choose to not live in those moments of my life.
It takes self-reminders sometimes.
Many times.
But I’m getting better at it,
and I’m truly enjoying my life now.

It is not always easy to be positive,
not now,
not with the many things
that try to wrench away composure in the lives of us all.
And I don’t always succeed.
But I do love my life
and all those who are with me
and who help me be who I can be.

And I’m happy to be where I am,
doing what I do,
being what is me,
and most of all loving life.

This is not one of those times in my life
for which I have regret.
This is a time of joy
and learning to live life better than yesterday.
I love my life.
Pitfalls included.
But can we have fewer pitfalls?


Thank you.
