I would take the sound of
the gentle, bitter rain dripping on your windowsill at night,
the sound of unique birds chirping enthusiastically in the trees
and the kettle boiling vigorously.
I would take the taste of
refreshing ice cream on a warm summer’s day,
the first sip of tea in the morning
and the taste of a sweetened donut for dessert.
I would take the smell of
fresh chips filling the air,
the smell of shampoo soaking in your hair
and a roast dinner making your mouth water.
I would take the sight of
the stars glistening in the moonlight,
people getting into the festive spirit
and stepping into your garden full of crackling crystals and cold winter snow.
I would take the touch of
a unique shell placed in the palm of my hand,
the soft sand racing through my fingers
and the feel of making snow angles in the snow.
