Remember that a world can close
Today, or next week
and become a memory.
A warm life suddenly shut
Still loved, smelled, felt
Sneaking thoughts unexpectedly.
Common routines afterward enhanced
Brewing coffee, cooking food
First outside light streaming through the front door.
Thoughts hopping around
Like the shoes of young
A batch of goodness to indulge in daily and forever more.
