at times we lie when we smile.
our hearts close many times before they open,
when beyond self you need someone to stand in the gap and fill the space of emptiness.
it gets pretty hard when the people you thought would come to help only briefly pass by yet you would like them to stay.
maybe this is the time to love a little more, and hug a little tighter, and spend some little more time in conversation before rushing away.
Maybe all those coffee promises should come to life and have a breath of life.
that beyond self pity, life should have a meaning and a definition.
and that the void in my heart will cease to exist.
maybe this is the time to dial that number and make that call just to say hello.
could this be the time to write that message that has been awaiting your texting.
do you really need to first get time and go to the studio to take that photo?
what if you took that selfie with all its deformities but when at least you have something..!
living in the future is something of the past. for all those those little things you can do today, do them now.
In memory of darling love, Lora Atwongyeire
