Nostalgia - NaPoWriMo Day 2

This is about the joy experienced
in the moments between the notes -
not on the downbeat,
but expressed over time in the ageless
years of youth. Somehow the memories
live in the conversations of our later
selves, as we look to recapture something
that may have only ever been a memory.
Yet the timeless is just that, inviting us to
the moment in a way that deepens our
connection to those past selves, through
empathy, love, care, a different kind of
holding.
How might these tiny ones live within
our hearts, forever?
