If the Calendar was a colander
Would we sieve the future year?
Would we keep the bright and happy days
And let the wet and ****** days
Never touch us with their tears?
Would we look ahead and mark them off
Before they ever got here?
Vanish them with a little cross,
Delete them with a little cheer?
I never thought I actually would
But getting older has made it clear -
If I could choose my future days
See my time through in a happy daze
I would - Make all sad memories disappear,
Pass by all the lost loves and regrets,
All the anxiety they create every year -
Life is for living, keeping it as good as it gets,
No matter how deep past wounds appear.

I hope you know
Theres a Poloroid of you
On my wall.
4 years and 13 days to the date
I loved you then
You danced across wood floors
You spun me up in your silk
You made me feel flawless from a hundred miles away
I wished I could spend every day with you
I still do
I don't know where you are now,
the world swallowed you whole
And you brought me warmth
I just wondered if you where wondering
That after all this time
If I still kept that Poloroid of you
On my wall
You'll never see this.
If you do I hope you know I only ever want the best for you
