Unconsciously we crafted a moment Where we stopped time for a time And met each other once again To resume an everlasting serenity.
I thought I was merely speaking Wasted words and actions repeating Yet as I spoke to the others I could see You were listening, listening completely to me.
And your listening created a unity That quietly and ever so gently Reached out and enveloped me And when you spoke I too was set free.
And now together in that moment That passes through both you and me How could there ever be torment? In a peace we thought we would never see.
Yet we still have that moment spoken Though the next was lost through me Yet that first is always unbroken As the sun by the sky touches the sea.
And even that moment lasts a second So short that it demands to be mourned Having now flowed away to the past But in its shadow of light a new one is waiting.
So we know there will be another Which we will fashion together Whether impossible or difficult Or greater than before.
So let us craft another moment Not a minute stilted and still But a thread between hearts That flows forward to an everlasting one.
