It Must Be

Wanting to relive past lovers

Watching romantic films
Wishing that character was you

Willing any memory
Suddenly having one creep into
Your consciousness

Hearing a favorite song
Tasting anything for the first time
The moment before a kiss
Deep eye contact with a stranger

Crickets and traffic at night
Salt water as far as your eyes can see
Laying in the grass
Peddling just to sweat
Then drying your face with your shirt

Not recalling the last moment
You looked at your watch
Or thought about what being small was like

It must be...
The reason to love again
The reason to cherish
It must be...
The story we write for ourselves

So we can enjoy the sounds of children playing
And the vast adventures that await us
