treasuring each moment

Do not ask me what tomorrow may bring
I haven't a clue
I cannot promise you that it will be okay
I have no idea if any of this will work out
I am unsure just as you are of what the future holds

It may be disastrous
Riddled with disappointment and regret
Or it may be the time of our lives
Filled with laughter and joy
No one can know for certain

What I do know
Is how I feel in this moment
How my insides are light up with happiness
And how alive my heart is as it beats a little faster

I know the enjoyment I receive from the time we spend together
How your laughter brings a smile to my face
And hearing your stories ushers me closer to you
I know that I am grateful for our chance encounter

I understand that there are no guarantees in life
Even when we seek them out
All we can do is sink deeply into the moment
And appreciate what is unfolding before us

So I am not worried about what may happen
Or what could happen
I am simply standing here beside you
Treasuring every single breath
