Cycle of the Heart

While speaking with someone, presently
I was informed of having to forfeit some of my days.
There were incidents of daydreaming,
with a seemingly fond proclivity
for ignoring certain moments.

So, those days were a "wash", as it were.
With missing items that vanished,
like socks through a vortex in the drying stage.

So, I learned the meaning of forever
and, the birth of my one, and only regret.
Taking so many moments of magical properties,
and then, taking them for granted.

Which brings us to my behavior, of late;
the behavior of the heart.
For, now I know enough to savor each moment,
and have learned to do so
both, unabashed,,,and, unashamedly.
