“You never see it coming, you just get to see it go.”
A simple sentence,
a sentence that defines my whole life.
An all or nothing person,
My highs have been perfection,
And my lows, my worst nightmares.
With each peaking moment I have never recalled the in between
However, these are the most vital.
I’ve learned that it’s the simple things,
The shared laughter that begins a friendship,
The kindness in small favors,
The consistent gestures that change your bad week to a good day,
The growing fear of having something to lose,
The first signs of sunshine, or even rain.
These things don’t usually last forever.
I can’t tell you how things happened the way they did,
And I don’t have an answer for how it might end,
But I know these are the things to cherish while I can.
These are the things that make me the lucky person I am today.
