Focus

At times I lose sight

of what’s right;

at times my bones ache,

my heart feels tight. 

 

I can feel so far away

from who 

I work so hard to be each day,

and so I stray.

 

I wander in my mind

until I find

a way to leave the fog behind.

 

 

Focus

on the moments

that make you feel like you’re alive.

Focus 

on the moments

that remind you that you’re here.

 

For we only exist

as the people we present.

If we waste our precious time in doubt,

we’ll learn to resent.

 

So let me soothe your soul,

with secrets you already hold.

I’ll play the role

of mentor in your mind,

until you find 

a way to leave the fog behind.

 

Focus

on the moments

that make you feel like you’re alive.

Focus 

on the moments

that remind you that you’re here.

 Treasured books

and lustful looks;

belly laughs

with friends in baths;

stormy walks

and late night talks;

salty skin;

a lover's grin;

swimming naked in the sea,

your gaze and the waves holding me;

melting into music

under the moon's light.

Hold onto these moments;

grip them in your hands.

Hold onto these moments

because they're all you have.
