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
