ah, sweet moments, those often tiny

vignettes of time, captured landscapes, 

life quilled upon passing seasons,

gifts and treasures collected

and tucked into memories' dusty

corners, filling the soul's bookshelf...

but sometimes there comes a moment

unnoticed and slipping quietly into its own

silence... it will have no tomorrows,

no memory to ease the emptiness 

of regret or words to paint upon 

a bare canvas, no poetry to still 

the heart, and no whisper 

to drift upon the wind... instead 

there is only the lingering silence

and a moment that will never

breathe again... it might

have been a song, perhaps

a dream or a poem never

written... it might have been

simply a memory...
