In A Moment….

In A Moment…

 You can laugh…

You can cry….

You can behold the most beautiful things…

You can have your breath taken away…

You can experience excruciating agony…

You can cry tears of joy…

You can be given devastating news..

You can smile…

You can create unforgettable memories…

You can fall in love…

You can brighten someones day…

You can give your heart away…

You can walk away from love…

You can break a heart…

You can mend a heart…

~*~
All this and more you can do in a moment…

Cherish every moment…

 For it’s not how much time you have…

It’s the moments you fill it with…

  1. That is exquisite. That split second that can change everything. It can change the past, it can change the present, it can change the future. Either way, that moment can, and will, change your life. It is unfortunate that some of those moments are awful. These awful moments though, will make some of the good moments immortal.

    Another brilliant post Christina, your skill with words is exemplary. Thank you for sharing this piece

      • You’re welcome Christina. And I must admit, I think you found the perfect picture to go with it. Showing two people sharing a moment that is described a lot in your poem

  3. Yes Christina – such a heartfelt and wise message in your beautiful poem today. If everyone could really ‘get this’ there would be a revolution of sorts … people appreciating each and every moment that is no less than a gift. I know this is so close to your heart — and you, more than anyone understands the blessing in each day, each moment that is joyous that is free of hurt and pain. I too understand this well… A lovely and wise poem my beloved friend ~ Brava xo Robyn
