us for instance 



for instance
we forgetting our toothbrush somewhere
waking up the next day
we could then imagine
& re-enact the day before

for instance
we forgetting a small piece of happiness there
to	embracing an ocean of sadness

for instance
we could see		though tis but a glance knew not of how to cherish 
how then shall we attain love

for instance
we forgetting a day
though that particular day
we were filled with sadness
but	we must remember 
the times we smiled at the person we loved most

thí dụ riêng ta
 thí dụ ta bỏ quên chiếc bàn chải đánh răng nơi nào đó ngày mai thức dậy ta hình dung & nhớ lại ngày trước đó thí dụ ta bỏ quên niềm vui nho nhỏ…
