Nothing But

I wish you could know what I know, feel what I feel and realize the total insaneness of it all. For a moment in time I was not alone. My cares were so few and my will could not be broken. My face finally told the story of purpose and happiness. I cherished every second and relived memories SO many times. All the while without knowing one day memories would be all I had. I see you now worn, tired. Still I take it all in, paying even closer attention to all that makes you you. Your voice, your presence – so bitter sweet. You leave me overwhelmed by emotion. Emotion you refuse to witness or believe in. Maybe because you are overwhelmed by your own as well. I caution you. Wise up, take nothing for granted. For one day you too may be left with nothing, but a memory.
