Today was a rush of lukewarm, cold, and comfortable–a pleasurable mix of love, life, and work. Today my song dimmed to a hum, but the melody remained. I smiled, and I meant it. You laughed. We sat in warm silence together, the two of us, separate and joined. I saw your light, and it made me feel new again.
Today, I lived so vividly the memories still bounce wordlessly from cell to cell, laughing, dancing, yelling for my attention. Today, my heart thrummed happily in my chest, each beat reminding me why I love this world and everyone in it so very much. Today, there was no time for nostalgia or regret–only peace. Peace and laughter.
I loved today.
