A Moment

there comes a moment when you say to yourself
what have I accomplished
here on earth?
what have I done 
that is so outstanding 
my memory will live on 
with meaning.

i stand in the middle of the room
and wonder, what do I own? 
Who have I become?

climbing many mountains to get here 
but what is here?
I am a visitor 
but do I belong?

there is a picture of me 
with a smile of joy 
memories of my life

if you look long enough 
if you look hard enough 
i hope you will see me.

for one sweet instant 
will you see me for who I am
or will the light flicker
putting out the flame?
