Gratitude List

Here are things I'm grateful for you, right here, then gone again.

Life is busy always changing

I'm here, right here, then gone again.

The noise a heart makes when heard

through shirts and muffled hugs

It's true, I'm here, then gone again.

Revolving doors. Two ticking clocks

the second hands not quite synced up.

Grateful for forgetfulness

more so for remembrance.

Things I've done, I'm sorry for

still grateful that this fight exists

this life exists in spite of it

grateful I'm a part of it.
