The Moment (poem)

I touched upon a moment gone astray

What did I kiss is very hard to say

Some lost forbidden from a yesterday

A path uncertain meaning and decay


What started off as dreams of far away

And fields of flowers in their full array

As heaven put its finest on display

When something tore this fairy tale apart


At first I took no notice of display

It’s just a fancy having its own way

I didn’t sense the things about to start

I paid no heed to dark approaching clouds


I didn’t know why my heart yearned to stay

As a the storm rolled in

From some distant mountains

Bringing bitter rains


Where was the sunshine of moment ago

Astray decay I say to the oncoming flood

Which drowns me in confusion

Why am I still smiling


And as sudden as it came it was gone

Forgotten reasons

Forgotten seasons


All it left me was this

A thank you and a kiss

Beautiful poem, Martin.

Dreams of yesteryears come back to make us question decisions

made. The haunting truth is that we will never know.

Quite a legacy, I dare say.
