The Moment (poem)

Updated on December 7, 2013

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.
