Brooklyn by J. Turnbeaugh


the blissful days of summer

to run in fields of gold

and feel the sweat and the heat of the sun

the grass underfoot, the blinding blue sky

and yellow rays of light

to feel that you will never grow old.

and never die.

all exists in these moments.

the reckless abandannon of bliss and life.

the desire above all to live.and to only live.

all else means nothing.

the way the sun dies, in a blaze on the horizon.

and to know that we may see it set, or we may not,

and its of no matter because we will see a million more suns.

we will have a million more days.

to feel that we will live forever.

the desperate and passionate kisses like a thirst.

stolen in hidden moments.

and more important than all ,to love

the nervous breaths and racing hearts

that pound like drums and thump in our chests

and show us in every beat

that we are alive

the sun kissed skin and smiles of youth.

and if I  only knew then what I know now,

 I would have said simply

that  I will miss this everyday.

to look back at these moments and these days.

and although we are changed.

we remember.

those beautiful golden moments of life

confined now, only to memory.

but we will remember

with every setting sun we will remember.

“It’s funny really, we spend our lives worrying about tomorrow and in the end only wanting to get back yesterday.”
