Sing a song, hum a tune, sip a glass of wine, read a page from an old favorite, call a friend, cook a delicacy, clean the closet, take a shower,

You may try all these as I float through your mind, let it not cast a shadow, let it not distract you, you are doing just fine,

Or you may just indulge for a while, welcome the fleeting thought, feed it, humor it, have a chat, let it spend a while in your mind, and then let it go, do not bid good bye, for it will come back another day to pick up what it left behind, 
a sweet melancholy that you could call yours,
and you would be looking forward eagerly for that day to come…
