Time stands still
Sand through the hourglass
Has stopped flowing
Calmness surrounds us
A feeling of euphoria
A feeling of being complete
Fills the air in the night
Moonlight shines upon your face
Your eyes like the stars
In the vast open sky
Heat reaches out its fingers
Fighting off the coolness
The glow from the fire
Sound of crackling embers
Mixes with the noises
Of life existing in the moment
Reminding us of how real
That this moment is
As we are wrapped up
Holding each other so close
Because we don't want to lose
One second
One minute
One hour
While sand isn't flowing
While time has stood still
Just for us to be together
Frozen in time forever
As we sit on a rock
Overlooking the valley below
Wondering if just maybe
Others are doing the same
Living in the moment given
Fulfilling the longing of another
Feelings never felt before
Wanting the moment to last
No longer feeling alone
No longer feeling incomplete
After years of searching
After years of hope fading
Finding someone to fill
The cavern in your chest
The void that only grows
You can't explain it
Words will never suffice
What you thought you'd never find
Its here right now
In this moment
In the air
In the arms
In the moonlight
On the rock
Overlooking the valley
Stars hanging above
Just for us
To keep forever
