In those moments...

In those moments

Just as I wake

eyes still shut

glued tight

I'd rather lie



my thoughts

and I

Sometimes fleeting glimpses

of dreams remain

Sometimes I remember


Only what is on the list

Did I pay the phone bill?

Do I have eggs, milk or bread?

Sometimes I remember

those I miss

Hoping still

for a notification

of a message

that never comes

Or being able to call

and say "hi Mom

I could mull

over something

that went wrong

to try to make peace

and calm my mind

Sometimes I write

with one eye open

because the words

came in the night

I count the minutes

to see if I can

hit snooze


and again

Making the moments last

and pass

Before the day takes hold

as I reflect.
