Enjoy Every Minute


“Enjoy every minute”

Says the twinkle of their eye in a sea of calm

They’ve been here

The storm has long passed.

But they’ve been here before.

So says the lines on their face.

And the body that’s been and birthed and bore.

They read from pages past.

From tiny chapters of nostalgia.

I listen smiling.

With ringing ears from echoed woes.

As they round and round the garden “look at those tiny toes”.

Time to do the dishes, or washing

Or some quick task I think.

Phrases must come so east

Once the love story’s been written.

Maybe it’s different when you’re in it.

Can you still be in love

And not enjoy every minute?
