Hello my friend it’s been ages
Since I last looked upon your beautiful face.
Last time, was when the sun last rose,
It bountiful miracles to perform.
When I last laughed and sniggered
At that joke you told
As you effortlessly brushed my hair from my eyes.
Did I ever tell you ‘I love you’?
What about how much I missed you?
But why mention it now?
The cold dark stranger is gone
And you have returned to make my face shine once more.
If I knew you were coming, I’d have cleaned up,
and prepared the spare room for you…
Your fresh breeze invigorates me.
I feel like a new woman.
Who needs depression and anxiety?
I breathe deeply and feel your warmth on my skin.
Your fingers trail across my arm lazily in the afternoon lull.
I pick up my pen
and try and make your presence last forever
by recording every moment, every feeling.
Every fevered, excited breath…
They call it mindfulness…
I call it a more relaxed life.
I forgive you.
