I wish I could zip the sweet moments away,
And relive those happy memories
In times of solace.
But I would need to be mindful,
And not let those moments enter
That make me cry.
For if they do,
The zip will break away, broken beyond repair,
And each fragment, like a teardrop, will stain the moments,
Sad and happy alike.
So, I think I will just rely
On the sheer sweetness of moments, and make them even sweeter,
To relive each without effort,
To relive each in its realness,
To relive each in the same way each time.
And I will never need the zip…
