Sum It Up-Right Now

February quietly sneaks in barely noticed,
like a house guest  arriving unannounced.
The days are rushed , they fly.
Phone calls, emails, appointments to keep.
February arrives with a quiet promise,
flirtation, whispers, and sweet romantic gestures.
Argentinian night, a beautiful meal awaits ,
with love and attention to detail.
We laugh over the music playing.
Daniel wearing his pajamas says goodnight,
I tuck him and rabbit in.
I embrace him and linger there,
moments that I will cherish forever.
When did Josh turn twenty five ?
when did sweet Daniel turn ten ?
Time is swift, time doesn't wait.
I follow my passion then, now.
I wear the scars of yesterday,
still a dreamer in my heart.
I triumphed along my life's journey.
I grow, I learn, I ask.
In my heart gratitude my companion.


  1. Ooh, what's an Argentinian night? He's ten and still sleeps with his rabbit? I'm glad to hear that. There are some things that I don't want time to steal.

  2. Cryptic and dazzling and felt.

    Love this: "Time is swift, time doesn't wait." So so painfully true.

  3. I grow, I learn, I ask.
    In my heart gratitude my companion.
    really all you need :)

  4. Yes, Molly. I love that he sleeps with his rabbit still . I don't know how much longer he will be doing that so I savor the moment. Argentinian night we have an authentic barbecue , music , and wine. :)

  5. Thank you, Aidan. As my mother used to say time does not wait for anyone.

  6. Yes, Brook. That is all I need :)
