Sometimes I forget

Sometimes I forget how wonderful it can be.
Birth.
Life.
Death.

Sometimes I forget to listen in.
Infant's crying.
Children laughing.
People sobbing.

Sometimes I forget to remember.
Baby photos.
Prom images.
Eulogy documentations.

Sometimes I forget what it means to be calm.
Screaming on the hospital bed.
Cleaning marker off the walls.
Making all the funeral preparations. 

Sometimes I forget what it's like to frown.
Holding the baby for the first time.
Taking the kids to Disney.
Knowing they're in a better place.

I just forget.

    Life and people can pass by really quickly. I didn't really think about that until a while ago, we go through ups and downs but at the end of the day life can be interesting. You ever do that thing where you start going through photo albums? People change so fast, they move on. But some day we might see them again (I don't know about this part, everyone believes in something different so if you don't I'm sorry and I don't mean to intrude.)

    I really like this, it has this peaceful yet slightly bitter sweet tone.
