Why do I carry with pain and warmth
Those misty moments of yesterday?
Those days and nights of fear and wonder?
They shaped me for the tomorrows of hope.
For the nocturnal neon brushes with love.
For the morning waking to reality and truth.
For life’s gifts deserved and not so much.
For romance’s steady itches and searches.
For those misty long-ago moments, thanks:
You gave me a life so many would wish.
