The Magic Window

I hold in my heart
the memory
of the magic window
I miss my nook
I wish I had written there
I wish I had known
I wish I had remembered
and listened to my song

But no
the life that I was living
didn’t allow for that
and I miss the moments
that I wish I had
had the chance
the understanding
the spine
to capture

But now, in the remembering
in the closing of
my mind’s eye
I capture again
the magic window
I can not possibly
go back and capture
the missed moments
that can never again

but I’ve lived
and I’ve learned
and now
I listen
