as long as I live

May sunrise

‘I will remember this as long as I live.’

I want to experience great joy
and great beauty-
and small beauty
and lesser joys.

And wonder.
I want wonder each and every day.
Wonder of such significance
that it is etched in my memory
with gold threads
and bright liquid silver.

With each day passing,
the time lessens,
adding an urgency to each minute
and hour.
Time enough to open eyes and heart
to joy and beauty and wonder.

And time enough
to remember
as long as I live.
