in front of me – a poem

“in front of me”
by Jeremy C Kester

we all look behind
feeling what we can see
ahead
but only what is
want
forgetting what we have

this coffee smells good
in front of me
and I feel like I have
less
than I want
but what I need

I can sip
for now reminded
of what I have
in front of me
but I will again
forget
