This is Now

This is now-

the sweat on my forehead,

the laughter of my siblings,

and the sound of children playing on a warm spring night

my mother calling my name,

me running up the stairs to hand her something she forgot, and then hugging her goodnight

the book beside my foot waiting for me to pick it up again

this is my life,

my precious life,

and I savor these moments
