Eight Seconds of Eternity

Written by: Ray Angelo Ong

Beneath that baffling moonlight,
I covered your body with my loving arms.
Then we looked up,
and watched the fireworks as they lit the sky-
that gave vivid colors to our gloomy night.
Gently, you leaned on me.
I felt your soul hardly breathing.
You became still- not merely moving,
with your eyes closed, peacefully;
then you whispered,
“I will love you, forever…”
The sun began to rise; created a romantic scene.
How nice it was for the two of us,
but sadly, it was only me
who saw that moment of eternity…
