Do you remember when you felt the blood Gushing through your body; You felt it etch into your being All the kindness, courage and love That you thought you could ever feel; And your heart sang!
Do you remember how your breath Caught in your throat. The sheer shock Of those emotions rocking you inside. You felt so overwhelmed that your tear ducts Felt the strain. You blinked your wet eyes And your heart sang!
You looked straight ahead, The wave kept rising in your chest. You felt like you were everything That you were meant to be. Your atoms ricocheted With those around you. Nature played A little bit of handball as she caught Your Atoms in her hands and passed her own to you And your heart sang!
Do you remember feeling like this was The perfect moment in your time, In your space, in your place; And everything had come together that day to remind you That your heart was aligned with all That defined you as the happiest version of yourself; And oh your heart, it sang!
You don’t remember - not really. Neither do I. I mean I remember the warmth in my being, the love flowing out In waves, in rivers. A oneness with the essence of the world. But beyond that, I can’t remember; I can’t evoke the feeling. Something has gone awry, something has been lost Along the way. But I still see its ghost flitting, Vaguely passing before my eyes when I am still. But my heart, it doesn’t sing.
