Moments

 

I’ve been thinking a lot about why people get up each morning at the crack of dawn. Go to a job they hate. Work all day. Come home. Go to bed. And do it all over again, forever. And then I remember that its the moments in-between that we live for. And the people, that make it worthwhile.

What are my moments in between?

Sharing meals with the people I love

Walking with my dog

Writing in the sun

Falling into bed after a long day

Learning something new

Hearing someone else’s story

Laughing

Crying

Feeling

Soft touches

Fresh scents

Sweet tastes

And who do I do it for?

Me.

And who keeps me going?

Me.

And who reminds me of the beauty in the world?

Me.

And who continues to love?

Me.

And who rises every morning?

Me.

And me is you.

And you are me.

And we are we.
