Moment In Time (poem)

Blessing come true

Our moment in time


There was time enough to hold you

To kiss you

To gaze into your eyes

To wander through the fields

Enchanted with your presence


Time enough to laugh

Time enough to sing

Time enough to dance to

Dance through all that life had to offer

Each breath

Each heartbeat

Sweet moment in time


As others complained

How short their time was

Sharing memories of moments

Quickly passed away

Then and now

Then and now


We couldn’t understand

We couldn’t grasp what they were going through

Blaming it on a dreams

Blaming it on a lifestyles

Blaming it on everything but the truth

This moment in time


So we lived our years

Years of holding

Years of kissing

Timelessly enjoying the dreams we cast

Our bound fashioned purpose for endlessness


But then you died

To leave me alone with the price of it all

The price of those glorious lifetimes

The years of disappearing tears

Trapped by the wonder we enjoyed

My moment in time

So incredibly beautiful. One day we will all either leave our partner alone or be left. I think about that.

Beautiful sentiments set to the rhythm of rhyme.

There will be a joyous reunion, one day.

All things end, which really shows us how mortal we all are. We must enjoy what we have, as long as we have it.
