Today it Happened….
Today it happened. Today I saw his face and it made me smile. Today, I put a perfectly ripe strawberry to my lips and let them feel each tiny bump before taking a bite with full commitment. Today, I went for a run even though it was cloudy and the forecast said it would rain, because I wanted to meet it when it arrived. As I ran, the rain seemed to wash away the world around me, leaving me only with the sound of my feet upon the wet pavement and the pounding of a racing heart within my chest. Today it happened. Today I woke up ready to be here. Happy to be here. And now, I’m going to bed wishing that today would stay today because tomorrow I won’t be here. Tomorrow I won’t see his face. Tomorrow I will have no recollection of what a strawberry even is let alone what it feels like. Tomorrow the rain will still fall down on me, only I will not feel it’s touch. Tomorrow there will be no sound, no pound. But, that’s tomorrow — not Today.
