I Was With You

I Was With You

I lost.


I lost my ability to focus.

I didn't appreciate the present moment.

I was face first in my phone.

I was having a conversation with you.

A text came in.

I thought I turned off notifications.

What if it's about that thing?

It can still wait a few minutes.

I can still be in this moment and appreciate it for what it is.

For everything it is.

Isn't it all that there is?

I can make eye contact with you.

And nothing else.

So I put my effing phone away.

And I was with you.
