I Think Its Going to Rain Today
If only there were a world like the one in my head. Nobody gains weight. Cookies taste terrible. Appliances work for a lifetime. Vehicles never break down. Carpet releases its stains and never needs replacing. Everyone has warm slipper socks. Christmas never loses its magic. Jobs never go away. Children never get sick. And death comes with poignant dignity fading into a peaceful passage after a long life. When there is always time to say I love you and I'm sorry. When there is always time for goodbye and I'll miss you. Where grief is never shameful and actually fades with time. Where tears don't have to be hidden and maybe then even stop needing to come. All in the world in my head.
