the need not to forget

And the lesson is just this… when we forget to cherish… to celebrate… even for a day, the very things we love can vanish.  They not only can, they will.  I forgot.  So, the focus became small needs not being met and petty differences, instead of just being grateful for the very rare experience of true love.  To go forward with that regret, is weighty but to stay in the regret is deadly, so on I go.  Again.  And again with hope.  That I have learned something.  That I have learned what precious means.  That I have learned to protect precious things, loosely.  and well.  and not to forget…
