Only For A Moment

I escape


Into a world of blackness


But for only a moment


 


I see bars on my crib


Blankets and teddy bears strewn throughout


But for only a moment


 


I see colorful markings on the pavement


As my little hand holds on to a pale pink cylindrical object


But for only a moment


 


I see the world go by in a blur


My legs shake nervously on the pedals of my new bike


But for only a moment


 


I see streamers and cake


I hear the kids scream and giggle, and gifts all piled up, just for me


But only for a moment


 


I see lockers and kids walking about


Complaining, shouting, laughing, gossiping


But for only a moment


 


I see friends and non-friends accept a piece of rolled up paper


You accept your achievements and give a speech to set off our new lives


But for only a moment


 


I see our loved ones


I watch you as you come down an aisle, looking beautiful in a white gown, we kiss


But only for a moment


 


I see you


You see me


In the bed, together, sharing our dreams with each other


But only for a moment


 


I see you holding a little us


In your arms, the little thing lays sound asleep


But only for a moment


 


I see our little one age


Too fast, our baby grows


But only for a moment


 


I see our little princess


Chat with friends, talk, live, connect, and vanish to excel to her dreams


But only for a moment


 


I see your aged spotted hand hold mine


As we sip on cool lemonade and watch the sun go down


But only for a moment


 


Now i don't see you


But you somehow see me, wherever you are


But only for a moment


 


I see a process we call life


Repeat before my eyes


But only for a moment


 


I escape


Into a world of blackness


But only for an eternity
