do you know it’s February and winters are
rushing out to make way for spring?
do you know you could stand at the bus stop in the afternoon and watch
the leaves dancing down on the sidewalk to carpet the concrete roads and
leave a trail in your mind?
do you know you can wake up and actually
inhale the air right into your lungs because its warm and
smells of new possibilities and hope?
do you know today isn’t the same as yesterday and won’t be the same as tomorrow and that is a divine gift in itself?
do you know there is a melody and an unfathomable perfection
underneath all the madness we see within and around us?
so yes, lady love, i got
my heart turned up to the sun.
and it’s beaming fresh new life and humming
with a love and faith so compelling, you could
hang it up alongside the moon
to light up the night sky for all eternities.
