For a Moment

For a moment, I believed I even allowed myself to breathe. . . To smile upon you in all that was said and done For a moment, you were there And a simple thought made me beam I was there looking you in the eye it seemed For a moment, doubt swept under my feet Threatening to bring me to the ground But your words pulled me up by the string For a heavy moment, I realized Just how far you are from me Too far to be close—to far to allow that smile And for another sad, long moment, I sit here in awe-struck despair Wondering why the smile was ever there

    Hey Laura, I can see this exactly. There are glimmers of hope. You captured this so exquisitely. I wish for you a special love of enduring happiness and joy. It will happen. Nothing wrong with hope for love. Please give yourself a truckload of credit for being the sweet thing you are. Yay!

    Laura, it's not your fault, we choose to believe when being pulled in by words.. hope you keep the smile, not for the moment... but for yourself... enjoyed..Linda
