What I Want

…survives in spite of famine, tragedy and illness. When life is most challenging what is in the heart is spilled forth in the greatest measure. Love is neither remedy nor cure, but makes bitter medicine easier to swallow.

From the novel “Today Only” by American author D. Love

from you
is simple.
I want
today only.
If it’s laughter,
I want it.
If it’s pain,
I want it.
today holds,
as long as
the day
holds you,
I want it.
