This Moment

Written by: Eileen Manassian

Life offers 
A few choice moments…
Pregnant with promise
Open to opportunity
Dense with destiny
Moments in time
When everything
You have
Everything you are
Hangs in the delicate balance
Replete with risks…
Should you speak…
Or keep silent?
Should you reach out…
Or withdraw?
Should you embrace…
Or walk away?
Should you write…
Or wait for a message?
The seconds pass…
You hold your breath
This moment
May change your life
Almost gone
It’s almost gone
The chance
To make happiness yours
To reveal all that you hide…
The lasting love
The possessive passion
The moment is ripe
To touch
To feel
To fly
To melt
Into the essence
Of eternity
This moment
Don’t let it pass by
This moment 
Could change every other moment
Of the rest of your life.
