For just a moment, I forgot.
In that moment, I saw something trivial
and I started to rise from my chair.
I was coming to tell you…you never seemed to mind
when I did. Even when you didn’t know
exactly what I was talking about.
In that fraction of a moment
everything was as it should be.
I’d forgotten, you see.
If only for just a second, I forgot.
Then I remembered.
Strange how I don’t recall what
I was coming to share with you.
I remember now so I don’t get up,
there’s no need to.
I’m a bit sad right now
but the rest of the day will be better.
She would’ve reminded me not to forget that.
Its a good thing to remember.
