Memo to self …

Remember this moment;

this here and now..

this distillation,

this concentrate,

this essence of living.

When the sun is extinguished

and the dawn never wakes;

remember this moment

when your heart breaks.

When the world turns in darkness;

no blue sky above –

remember the glory

of this skylark singing.

When deaf to delight

remember this moment

and the treasure it is giving.

This sweet song of love ..

this perception of light … .

    Now, this is quite an another class of memo to self 🙂 Certainly, so magnificent is life that even in depths of darkness one can, if one is inclined, see light. Despair should be alien to one who believes and people like you are always there to remind.

    V. Good, atom.

    I was once, prior to moving here, uncomfortably close to despair .. I needed such a memo then, Shermeen.

    What a truly lovely memo.

    I must admit to sadness, my dear, but not despair. Life does go on and it is difficult to be sad in the spring. We are looking forward to a birthday party for my grandson, and a wedding in September.

      Thank you very much, Araminta . It’s lovely to see you here .. I’ll make some fresh tea 🙂
      I have discovered that I can approve and respond to comments without actually using the email facility .. doh! I’m so hopeless with the technical side of cyberspace 😦

      I’m very pleased that you have these happy occasions to look forward to … have you bought your hat yet? 🙂

    Marya, unfortunately a troll has hijacked my ID here … perhaps you will delete his comment.

    You will see that my IP address is different (and the same as previously). Thanks.

    This troll is the reason why I need to pre-approve all comments on my WordPress blog. It’s a shame that one sick and twisted individual can cause so much inconvenience.
