By now, I have forgotten
most of the things, I was so sure
went bump in the night.
The imagined worst case scenarios,
complete with bit part character actors-
none of whom had even a scintilla
of a chance to play out their parts-
have all evaporated in the ethers
of passing time.
Freed from at least this segment
of the rather large worry pie,
I find myself settling more comfortably
into whatever is waiting to happen,
which leaves quite a bit of free time-
to simply enjoy being here with you,
