What We Used To Have
Remember when we could smile at each other? When cloth did not cover up our happiness.
Remember when we could embrace each other? When human touch was a good thing.
Maybe we took it for granted.
Being able to show each other how we feel with a smile and a touch.
Now all we have are words.
Muffled words through protective coverings from six feet apart.
Typed words from even further away.
I long for us to be able to come together again.
To remember how lucky we are to have each other. To be alive and live each day with gratitude.
