I forget to be cynical and spiteful;
I remember to smile, and take a deep breath.
I let the big picture wait for a while;
And count the beats of your heart.
I have no time for my billion complaints,
for just this while, am glad to be alive.
I feel no need to close my eyes,
Reality is better than any dream.
This is poem 28 for Robert Lee Brewer's April PAD Challenge 2011. Prompt: "In the (blank) of (blank) poem".
