Hindsight is 2020

My birthday dinner at Bella Notte

the last time I ate inside a restaurant

I wish I had ordered the dessert.

Broadway tickets, concert tickets

Too expensive I would say.

To feel that energy and joy again

That would be priceless.

Had I known March would be the last time

I would hug my mother for 7 months

I would have hugged a little longer

and not rushed out the door.

Parties – I’m too tired.

Vacations – who has the time?

Festivals – too much traffic.

Now I watch movies to see people celebrate.

As I hunker down and batten up the hatches

turning inward for winter hibernation.

My one wish is to remember

when the spring comes

to remember the winter

and never take another moment for granted.
