Once In A While

leave a comment »

Once in a while,
we can laugh
without fear
or second-guessing;
feel fine and alive.

Once in a while,
we can be
ourselves.

Once in a while,
we can do
the right thing,
say the right words;
heal a broken heart.

Once in a while,
we can forget
ourselves.

Once in a while,
we can kiss
while savoring it,
return it in kind;
love without constraint.

Once in a while,
we can share
ourselves.

Once in a while,
we can pray
and have it answered,
but not for us;
remember someone else.

Once in a while,
we can get over
ourselves.

Once in a while,
we can say
thank-you
and mean it;
for no other reason.

Once in a while,
we can forgive
ourselves.

Once in a while.
