Moments of nothing

It is near,
It has touched your heart many 
times,
Wished for you to be always,
Yet is unable to give all,
Because...
The moment almost is,
But never quite perfect 
enough,
To want this more than, 

Stay, please don’t give up,
It sees your sadness,
Holds you sometimes,
But has to let go,
Because... 
The moment almost is,
But never quite perfect 
enough,
To want this more than,

You must trust in fate,
It knows your path,
The path you have stumbled,
But is unable to walk hand in 
hand,
Because...
The moment almost is,
But never quite perfect 
enough,
To want this more than,

How much longer must I wait ?
I feel it , 
then, 
Anticipation fades,
Because... 
The moment almost is,
But never quite perfect 
enough,
To want this more than,

But now I have given all I 
have,
Tired of this impasse,  
I accept less than is,
Because...

Moments are of nothing,
