Just A Moment In Time. by MswR
The passing of the tap water over your fingers,
Each sound that’s listened to as you try to sleep.
Time is not ours to keep.
The smells you remember,
Talks on the phone,
Mostly it’s the times you’ve spent alone.
The opening of a new chip bag,
All the anticipation
Without the slightest frustration.
Mind murals I reflect on,
Things from life that have come or gone.
Searching not one but all,
Passing someone down a hall.
Eating the best food,
Saving nothing for later,It was the pleasure that did matter.
A favorite movie seen over and over,
The same joke told a thousand times,
The look in the mirror at a thousand lines.
It’s simple yet quick,
Effortless yet worth working for,
Our moments in time for us to savor once more.
