Here Was The Moment (poem)

Updated on February 1, 2014

Here was the moment which he never knew

The dreams and lavish wishes had come true

The promises of morning came in view

The shackles which had bound him now were through

-

His dance of freedom was the day’s delight

Such wonders could his fingertips ignite

What once were thoughts would dazzle people’s sight

Did ever ever share a star so bright

-

His hands held kindness others wished they knew

Forgotten were the things he would ignite

To be like him was lofty dreamers’ sight

The world had changed before his day was through

-

A simple soul this pleasure and delight

Who for his time could make mere dreams come true

He shared with other secret of his view

So for all time his spirit would stay bright

-

But doubt and fear made all this sleeping through

And comfort’s shackles waited for his view

There in his mirror was reflection true

Here was the moment which he never knew

Music only

      Wonderful as always. That is the one big moment of truth for me and I've found as long as I still recognize the reflection in my mirror it's alright.
