One Small Instant

One Small Instant

The morning’s rays engulf me as I think of you and your soft eyes

And, oh, how I long for your hand to touch me in one small instant

Enough to let me know that you exist beyond space and time

For I have built my existence upon the hope that you are there

Engulfing my atmosphere with some semblance of your strength

Each day, clutching onto that fine silver cord attaching me to you

Accompanied by these burning tears that stream each time I tug

No, my darling, I cannot sever the source of so much anguish

For I could bleed a river that would rush my soul to you

Floating in this hollow where the echoes pierce my mind

I come to rest upon your shore with hope that never dies
