You could have been
So much more than
‘just’ an anecdote.

You could have been
The face I wake up to
Or the first person
My thoughts run to.

You could have been
The taste of coffee –
Familiar and warm.
Or the feeling
Of a really soft towel
After a nice warm shower.

You could have been
Lemonade on a
Hot summer day.

But you chose to save yourself
And became an anecdote instead.
