Remembrance

Sometimes I forget
what’s important
in life
kept busy
thinking
about next week
last week
or the week after next,

- kept occupied
recalling a moment gone
or planning a moment yet to come.

Sometimes I forget
the essence of life
exists
fully
only in this moment.

My breath brings me back again
to life lived
in a single heartbeat
lived
in the space between thoughts -

- where my essence
rests fully
at peace
with itself.
