she always told me to wave.
"it's good to wave at the people
in the old folks home,"
so we waved.
her with a smile
that could light up
the darkest hell.
and as we walked,
we talked about the demise
of our relationship
but at that moment
it was all worth while.
at least we made
some people smile.
light moments between people.
I catch these every day.
"I fix cars," he said, "now get out of here."
"and I fix you," she said with an adorable smile.
how cute, I thought, how sweet,
that moment, that snap shot of love.
like the time I held her in my arms
and she looked up at me and said,
"so this is what love is."
or the time I lay on the floor half-asleep
and she woke up and asked,
"Michael, where are you?"
then she spotted me on the floor and said,
"oh good, there you are."
these are moments I remember.
although if I think of the consumption of time,
I become depressed.
it is these moments that make me happy,
and in a strange way,
give me hope.
