If I Forget What This Feels Like

If I Forget What This Feels Like

 

If I forget what this feels like

like I’m feeling too old

take a whiff or a sniff

or a hop and a skip

into Rosemary for a real good stroll

 

If I forget what this feels like

like I can’t imagine the sun

give my eyes a little shut

or flip over the rut

shine beams from my heart

a heart full of gold

 

If I forget what this feels like

like I can’t catch my breath

smell bunches of roses and cinnamon cloves

and laugh with the best

 

If I forget what this feels like

like it never really happened

give out hugs and so much love

to the ones who give it all

like those high above doves

(jbd thoughts from an october afternoon in florianopolis, brazil)
