On Being Grateful

The simple
things,
giving way
to our shared
fate,
are often the
most
grateful
moments
forgotten
by disappearing
days
that we grasp
for
in thin air.
Days
which dangle
loosely
in between
the New Mexican
sky and a shimmering
sunset,
we
have forgotten
how
to
close
our eyes
when we
kiss.
Our days
are
grateful,
since
they affect us
to
move
without thinking,
and
in
a sense,
they dictate
our moods
like
the moon does
when
she’s
in her right
frequency.
See,
let’s see
this gratefulness
for
what it is,
and
forgive
the love
that
went
missing
the day you
walked
out
of our door.
