The excitement before a thunderstorm,
That periwinkle above the sunset.
The distant sound of music coming from the boardwalk
On a warm summer evening
A sleepy cat’s little paw cuddled upon your feet
As the sun peaks through the window on a Sunday
An embrace with someone that you know you can’t be with
But you love them with all your soul
Your favorite book in hand, staring at rain drops on the window
Of your favorite café
Crickets whispering upon the breeze
As stars shine for you in an endless sky
The smile in your grandma’s eyes when she reminisces
About an innocent past
Running through an open field, warm sun, hair free
With no place to be
A carton of chocolate ice cream to yourself
As your favorite movie plays
Those uncontrollable bursts of laughter with friends
On the nights you never want to forget
Saying “I love you”
And meaning it for the first time
That moment that you realize that life is short, tough, uncertain
But beautiful nonetheless
Something we search for,
Minutes, seconds, unexpected.
Freedom within, freedom without.
Visit again dear friend, don’t be a stranger.
