There's only so many hours in a day;
only so many words in my vocabulary;
only so many breathes to take
before I am dead and buried.
Therefore, I laugh,
I giggle and smile.
I live in this moment
if only for a while.
If breathing was infinite,
like life itself,
there'd be no point in worrying
about my sense of self-
righteousness that creeps further away
because no one knows what will happen,
not even today.
Because there are only so many minutes,
because there's only so many breathes
and so many turns;
because I fear that it goes by so swiftly
whatever is lurking
if I'd take one more risk.
So, because all the things that I've said above;
because I forget what I said it was;
because I fear the swiftness of spring,
I will savor all moments
and do one last thing ...
I've been gone a while ... I'M SORRY !! I'm sure I've missed some AMAZING poems while I've been gone and I can't wait to play catch up hahaha
I hope you enjoy !!
